NECA contractors are the technical professionals responsible for the most innovative and safest electrical construction in the U.S.

Our Origins

NECA traces its origins to the birth of modern electricity. In 1901, a group of electrical contractors met at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY, where a major display of electric power had been installed. These contractors joined together to foster trade and reform abuses within their fledgling industry.

Today, NECA continues to build on a legacy of protecting the public and making innovation possible. NECA contractors strive to be solution-providers for their customers, and their industry expertise benefits everyone working on an electrical construction project.
