2020 Electrician of the Year - Essential Electricians

Klein Tools 2020 Electrician of the Year - Nominate a deserving Professional Electrician Today

How it Works

For more than 160 years, we’ve heard amazing stories about electricians dedicating their time to their communities, jobsite safety and professional achievement. In recognition of their hard work and commitment to the quality, safety and integrity of their work on and off the jobsite, we conduct a search each year to showcase the finest U.S. electricians. These essential electricians have had our backs throughout this difficult year, and we’ve done our best to have their backs along the way.

This year we’re thanking U.S. Essential Electricians with both recognition in our Electrician of the Year contest and with a special 2020 Stimulus Rebate program. After you submit an Electrician of the Year nomination, be sure to follow the steps to redeem some Klein Tools swag to show our appreciation for a standard tool purchase of $30 or more.
