Winners of NECA's 2023 Project Excellence Awards Announced

Aug 18, 2023

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) has named 17 winning projects from across the United States as winners of the prestigious NECA 2023 Project Excellence Awards. This year saw a record-breaking number of PEA applications with well over 100 impressive project submissions.

The Project Excellence Awards (PEA), created by the National Electrical Contractors Association, recognize electrical contractors who have performed industry-leading, exceptional work during the previous calendar year. Commitment, professionalism, and ingenuity are cornerstones of the value NECA contractors provide their customers, and PEA platforms these qualities on a national scale.
