NCBEEC reminds homeowners that repair scams often follow storms
Hurricane Florence has left many homes and buildings damaged by wind and flood waters. The North Carolina State Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors (NCBEEC) is warning North Carolina homeowners not to become a victim to thieves pretending to be legitimate contractors. Homeowners whose home and other property are damaged are prime targets.
If you have had electrical equipment damaged or flooded, the NCBEEC has the following advice:
• Check to make sure the contractor is properly licensed. Consumers should verify a contractor’s NCBEEC license at www.ncbeec.org, or 919-733-9042 before signing a home repair contract or paying any money.
• Be wary of door-to-door repair solicitations, contractors using vehicles with out-of-state license plates and “too-good-to-be-true” bids.
• Don’t pay 100 percent of the bill before the repairs are properly completed. The NCBEEC is the state agency licensing more than 12,000 electrical contractors. Anyone who is paid to install, repair, or improve electrical systems or equipment must be licensed by the NCBEEC.
Anyone who witnesses un-licensed activity or is offered a contract from an unlicensed contractor can file a complaint. The complaint form can filed on our website, www.ncbeec.org. For any more questions you may call our office at 919-733-9042.

Continuing Education Class
The NC Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors (NCBEEC) requires every electrical licensee to complete half of their continuing education hours in a classroom setting. Our continuing education class is approved in North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and accepted by letter in Georgia. CECA and our Associate Members also offer periodic classes to keep the CECA Members apprised of pertinent things that impact the business of electrical contracting.
The Annual CECA Convention
A productive convention will provide attendees with a proper business agenda, a comfortable setting to allow attendees to exchange ideas and sufficient time to do both. To accomplish this, our convention has events for networking, educational sessions, business meetings as well as time for fun and family activities. The Silent Auction provides proceeds to CECA’s two funds, which support the electrical industry.
CECA Golf Tournaments
CECA holds two annual golf tournaments. A distribution of the proceeds from the tournaments is split between the John Moore Electrical Industry Assistance Fund (offers assistance to individuals and families in the electrical industry in the Carolinas who have experienced a loss, injury, or life changing event) and the Bill Boyette Scholarship Fund (supports electrical apprentice events, contests, high school vocational educational programs, career days, safety events and more.)
