The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.


NECA 2023 Project Excellence Awards Program Now Open

Mar 2, 2023

It’s time to celebrate your work and take pride in what you build and create! NECA has begun accepting entries for the Project Excellence Awards (PEA) program.

To showcase the exceptional work performed by our member-contractors throughout the country, NECA created the Project Excellence Awards to recognize companies for their outstanding commitment, professionalism and ingenuity in delivering an electrical project across 13 different market sectors. This year will be the second year of accepting electric vehicle (EV) submissions since opening that category in 2022.

NECA will accept submissions for the 2023 Project Excellence Award now until June 30, 2023. Awards will be based on whether the electrical/technology portion of the project is valued under or over $1 million for each market sector, except for industrial, low voltage/integrated systems, overhead transmission, residential, substation/interconnection and transportation/infrastructure. Applications submitted must be based on projects completed in 2022.

Winners will be announced at the 2023 NECA Convention and Tradeshow in Philadelphia.  

For additional information, including a timeline of the application process, program FAQs, previous submissions and award winners archive, in-depth judging criteria and a gallery of all project submissions, visit Contact Karina Forti at [email protected] with any questions.
