In 2009, The Edison Electric Institute, the association of publicly-owned electric companies, awarded the industry`s highest honor, the Edison Award, to projects where M. J. Electric was involved with the construction. The Edison Award recognizes U.S. and international electric companies for outstanding leadership, innovation and advancement of the electric industry. Two Edison Awards were presented in 2009. The award winning projects were Northeast Utilities’ Bethel-Norwalk Transmission Line Project and American Transmission Company’s Arrowhead-Weston Transmission Line project. The Bethel-Norwalk 345/115 kV Transmission Line was part of a major, multi-year transmission upgrade in southwest Connecticut. Before construction, this area was designated by FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) as one of the nation’s most severely congested. The Bethel-Norwalk Transmission Line was completed and energized in 2006. Through June 2009, the Bethel-Norwalk project had already generated more than $150 million in congestion-related savings.

Two Edison Awards were presented in 2009. The award winning projects were American Transmission Company’s Arrowhead-Weston Transmission Line project and Northeast Utilities’ Bethel-Norwalk Transmission Line Project. The 220-mile Arrowhead-Weston 345 kV Transmission Line between Wausau, WI and Duluth, MN significantly improved reliability in northern Wisconsin. Arrowhead-Weston transfers larger amounts of lower-cost electricity which reduced costs by $5.1 million to electric customers after one year in service.
“After just one day we could see that they were professionals that did not need additional coaching or watching as we had to do with the other contractors assigned to us. When they completed a feeder, we sent scouts behind them to catch any misses or go backs. They had little or none compared to others. What was very surprising to us was that I found that the men were fixing or replacing street lights when repairing secondary or replacing a pole. No other contractor did this. Other contractors could take notes on how M. J. Electric manages their resources and how they are professionalized in utility operations. My hat is off to you for having such people on your staff working for you. They are an asset that many of us dream about.”
