Available Dates & Times


The ELECTRI International/NECA Green Energy Challenge marks a yearly highlight for NECA Student Chapters.  With 19 Student Chapters registered for the 2013 competition, ELECTRI International is connecting hundreds of students with real challenges and asking them to develop real solutions, achieved with the assistance of NECA members and Chapters.  Electrical construction companies and industry partners looking to hire the best and the brightest students in the country appreciate the opportunity to assess the finalist’ work firsthand during the NECA Convention.

For the 2013 Green Energy Challenge, teams conducted an energy audit and designed an energy retrofit of a parking structure on campus or in the neighboring community.  In addition, teams were challenged to integrate renewable energy and/or electrical vehicle charging deemed appropriate by the team and facility owner.  An emphasis was also placed on the construction planning and management of the project.  A jury of electrical contractors and industry partners selected three finalist teams, which will each make a 15-minute oral presentation to determine the competition’s overall winner.  Youngstown State University won the 2012 Green Energy Challenge.  Join us as we get to see our industry’s future “live and in person”.
