Your businesses' electrical system will trip when it has too much electricity running through it. These problems are very common in commercial properties and usually stem from one of three culprits: circuit overloads, short circuits, and ground fault surges. Obviously, when your circuits are tripped regularly, your business operations suffer. To help solve your circuit breaker problems, our commercial electricians will come to your location for in-depth troubleshooting. Once we discover the root cause, we'll get to work on repairing your circuit breaker, so you can continue working and serving your customers.
Like tripped circuit breakers, dimming or flickering lights are among the most common commercial electrical problems in South Carolina. These issues typically stem from poor electrical connections. These poor connections will usually cause sparks, which can start fires and wreak havoc on your commercial building. While dimming lights might seem minor, if you leave this problem to fester, you could be looking at permanent damage to your businesses' electrical systems. Given the danger involved in fixing this problem, it's important that you work with a licensed business electrician like Engineered Electrical Solutions as soon as you're able to.
Dead power outlets aren't always dangerous, unlike other recurring commercial electrical issues. They are, however, disruptive to your company's productivity. Dead outlets are common in older commercial buildings and are often caused by circuit overloads. Connecting multiple high-wattage devices and appliances to the same power socket can cause overheating. When the power outlet overheats, it can lead to tripped circuit breakers. In some cases, the live wire catches fire and burns until it is disconnected. For a reliable solution using high-quality switches, sockets, and circuit breakers, it's best to hire a professional business electrician to get the job done right.
Finding a real-deal, qualified commercial electrician in South Carolina is harder than you might think. Whether it's due to availability or budget, you might be tempted to hire a residential electrician for your commercial electrical problem. While it's true that great residential electricians can help solve commercial issues in theory, it's always best to hire a business electrician with professional experience.
Unlike their residential colleagues, commercial electricians are licensed to deal with different materials and procedures suited specifically for businesses. Commercial wiring is much more complex than residential, and is strategically installed with maintenance, repair, and changes in mind. Additionally, commercial properties usually use a three-phase power supply, necessitating more schooling, skills, and technical ability to service.
The bottom line? If you're a business owner with commercial electricity problems, it's best to work with a licensed commercial electrician, like you will find at Engineered Electrical Solutions.

ORANGEBURG – Daniel football made a defensive play to win the state championship.
Three other ones made it possible.
The Lions stopped a two-point conversion in overtime Saturday night to beat Camden, 49-48, at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium and take their third Class AAA title in four years. Daniel finished a perfect 15-0 season and in fact has lost only one game in this four-year dynasty.
To get to the extra period, though, Daniel had to find some way to knock Camden (11-4) off schedule. The Bulldogs, mostly with their power running game led by 250-pound quarterback Grayson White, never punted.
But he was intercepted three times. And that was the difference. All three were critical.
Tremaine Davis Jr. had two interceptions, including one he returned for a touchdown and another in the end zone. Isaac Turner had another on a tip by teammate Preston Rollins. Daniel turned those into 21 points, including a possible 14-point swing on the second interception by Davis.
“Our defense has been working so hard,” Daniel coach Jeff Fruster said. “They’ve been opportunistic all year. We definitely won the turnover margin for the season and until lately, it wasn’t even close.”
Daniel went up, 28-14, in the second quarter on the 51-yard touchdown by Davis.
“I felt like it was a momentum-changer,” Davis said. “After that, we got on a roll. It was one of the biggest plays, I think.”
On a quick pass toward the Camden sideline, Davis jumped into the route and never stopped until he got to the back of the end zone.
“I’ve been talking all week about how I was going to get that pick,” Davis said. “I’ve been watching film every day. I just knew they were going to do that play and I saw it coming.”
In the fourth quarter, Davis intercepted a fourth down throw to the end zone by White.
“I should have batted it down. Honestly, I thought it was third down,” Davis said. “But I just wanted the ball so bad.”
Turner said he had a serious case of pregame anxiety that was still there during the first half.
“I had some jitters,” Turner said. “I just had to shake that off at halftime and get myself ready. It’s always hard for me to get going right off the bus, but guys were talking to me and helping me out.”
Turner's interception led to the second of three TD runs by Jakari Bennett and put Daniel up by 14 points again in the third quarter.
“I think it’s natural to have a little bit of jitters, especially on a stage like this,” Fruster said. “You just have to overcome that, which I feel like we did. We talked Friday about not letting your anxiety outmatch your hunger.”

Camden volleyball has been resilient throughout its postseason in its run to the state championship.
The Bulldogs rallied to win its final two matches leading into Saturday’s high school championship against Wren.
But the defending-champion Hurricanes made sure it wasn’t three in a row for Camden as they defeated the Bulldogs, 3-1, (26-28, 25-12, 26-24, 25-21) to win the Class 3A championship at Dreher High School.
“I give credit to Wren, but I am just super proud of my team,” Camden coach Paige Wilson said. “I am just really proud of them. Only two teams made it here. It didn’t happen like we wanted to and I know it is disappointing to lose. But we gave our best and I am proud of the effort and proud we made it here. The girls should be, too.”
It was Wren’s second-straight championship and third appearance in a row. The Hurricanes showed their championship fight after bouncing back from dropping the first set to win the next three.
“It feels amazing to do this twice and I couldn’t have done it without a better group of girls,” Wren coach Amy Godfrey said.
Wilson, who is in her 30th year as coach of the program, thought her Camden squad might have been a little anxious on the championship stage, the school’s first appearance there since 2006. But it didn’t show as the Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-11 lead before the Hurricanes scored four straight points to make it 17-15.
Wren eventually tied it at 23-23 and had its second set point before Camden rallied. Leah Hendrix had the Bulldogs’ final point of the set for the 28-26 win.
“It’s normal to come out tense in the first set, but we hung in there and were able to pull it out,” Wilson said.
Wren dominated the second set, winning 25-12, and jumped out to a 11-6 lead in the third. The Bulldogs’ Joyce Edwards had a kill that tied it at 18-18. It went back-and-forth from there before Wren won the last two points to win the set, 26-24.
It was the third-straight playoff match where Camden went down 2-1. The Bulldogs rallied to beat Gilbert on Oct. 26 and then Philip Simmons on Tuesday.
It looked like Camden was going to have another comeback left Saturday. The Bulldogs trailed 22-15 before four straight points close it to 22-18.
But after a timeout, Wren regained its composure and held on as the final point went off two Camden blockers, hit the floor and the celebration began.
“When last year ended, I didn’t know we would be back here,” Godfrey said. “I know we had the capable personnel but I just wasn’t sure. We needed leadership and the seniors stepped up to do it and brought us here.”
One of those players was senior Ashley Stein, who had several big kills over the final two sets.
Camden finished the season at 26-5 and will graduate two seniors from this year’s team, with one of them Edwards, the No. 2 girls high school basketball player in the country.
Edwards has yet to make her college decision but some South Carolina women’s basketball fans were in attendance, chanting, “We want Joyce! We want Joyce!” after the Bulldogs won the first set.

Camden High School football coach Brian Rimpf won his 100th career game as coach last week, with 58 coming with the Bulldogs. Rimpf is just the third head coach at Camden since 1972.
He spoke to The State and reflected on his time at Camden, his signature beard and long hair, as well as three-year career in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens.
The high school football season has three weeks left in the regular season. Here’s a Q&A with Rimpf, along with this week’s schedule and the top games to watch.
Lou Bezjak: What did getting your 100th win mean to you?
Brian Rimpf: “I guess the most proud part about it shows longevity and success over a period of time. It made me think about all the players and coaches that have been a part of that. Head coach gets credit when things go well, but it is about the assistant coaches, the players. It was really cool. My wife plus secretary and assistant athletic director at the school organized it so people sent in videos of former coaches and players and did a little video presentation at the end. So it was really neat and all of my family was in town. It was really special.”
LB: What is it like to be a coach at Camden that has so much tradition?
BR: “It has been special. Me and our assistant coaches keep telling the players how jealous we are of them. You have a community that comes to every game. … Our home side is packed. It doesn’t matter who we are playing. They come out and it is so rewarding to have the support from the community. It is neat to be part of the tradition and something that I want to add to. It is a really neat place. We have been successful and the culture at Camden is infectious. Hopefully, our guys will thrive not only on Friday nights but when they leave this place.”
LB: You are known for growing a beard during this season. How did that come about and when do you start growing it?
BR: “Beard ... I start when spring practice starts and the hair starts in December when we get done. I started actually with the hair when I coached in North Carolina. When the season was over, I cut my hair and didn’t cut it until the (next) season was over. For me, it shows the work and progress and how long it took to make the finished product. When I got to Camden, I started the beard. My wife got tired of the hair. But now, she is used to it. The players like it. It is a daily reminder of the grind and how long it takes to make something successful. I am thankful I work at a place and a profession that I don’t have to shave or keep a certain look.”
LB: You were a seventh-round draft pick by the Baltimore Ravens and played three seasons. What are some of your favorite NFL memories?
BR: “The Ravens organization is such a great organization and that experience I had there has contributed to what I tried to do at Camden. It was well done in Baltimore and the hall-of-famers I got to play with in Baltimore — Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Jonathan Ogden, Deion Sanders — are really neat. I got to play with a lot of great players and see their work ethic and how things are done right. Great experience and fun to look back on. They do a great job bringing back former players. Earlier this season, they brought back former players for the opening game. They brought us on the field, put us in a suite and they did things the right way. I got to take my kids, who either were really young or not born (when I was playing), and they got to be a part of that too.
LB: When you signed your first contract, what was the coolest or first thing you bought with the money?
BR: “I didn’t like to spend the money. I drove my truck that I had in college for the first few years there. But I did buy a car for my wife. My son was just born. I bought a Chevy Tahoe that we still have. My son is still driving it to this day.”
LB: You mentioned Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. Any funny stories of them that you remember from your time playing with them?
BR: “Story I remember about Ray Lewis was one time one of our linemen and one of our defensive backs were arguing during practice. And they continued arguing when they got back to the locker room. So the lineman said, let’s wrestle and square it up. So all of a sudden they start wrestling and then Ray walks in. He goes up to the defensive back and says ‘I got this, back up.’ As soon as he said that, the locker room was going crazy. We all made a circle and they got in there and it took all of five seconds as Ray (who was a state wrestling champ) took the lineman down and got on top of him. It was awesome and we were so hype. After that, no one challenged Ray.”
AC Flora (3-4, 1-1) at Irmo (7-0, 2-0): A.C. Flora leads all-time series, 2-1, including last year’s 35-21 win. An Irmo win would give it eight victories, most since winning 11 in 2010.

Kendall Byrd leads the team with 41 catches for 738 yards and 10 TDs. AC Flora gave up 73 points last week in a loss to Richland Northeast, most points allowed since giving up 81 to Fairfield Central in 1998.
Blythewood (3-4, 1-1) at Clover (5-2, 2-0): Blythewood leads all-time series, 2-1, including last year’s 21-7 win. Bengals QB Harrison Collins has thrown for 1,568 yards and 13 TDs.

B-C senior QB/WR Will Young has 903 yards and 15 total touchdowns. Running back Deshaun Washington needs 53 yards for 1,000 rushing on the season. He has 13 touchdowns. Tyrone Jackson leads B-C with 34 tackles. Dreher has won two straight games for the first time since 2018.
Silver Bluff (6-1, 2-0) at Saluda (5-2, 1-1): Silver Bluff is in first place tie in Region 3-2A with Strom Thurmond. Silver Bluff’s lone loss was to Midland Valley. Saluda has lost two straight games. Silver Bluff leads series, 5-2. KenMane Brunson leads Saluda with 551 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. JT Lott leads Saluda with 49 tackles and two sacks.
White Knoll (7-0, 2-0) at Lexington (6-1, 2-0): Winner of game takes over first-place in Region 4-5A and can clinch at least a share of region title with a victory.

CAMDEN — Camden star Joyce Edwards, the No. 2 prospect in the Class...
She is South Carolina's highest-rated signee since No. 2 Raven Johnson in the Class of 2021 and the sixth top-5 recruit since 2019.
Edwards is the highest-rated prospect from the Palmetto State since A'ja Wilson, who was ranked No. 1 overall in 2014. She averaged 28.5 points, 13.6 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 2.9 assists in her junior season, when she led Camden to the 3A state championship. She also helped lead Team USA to a gold medal at the FIBA U19 World Cup this summer alongside Gamecocks sophomore Chloe Kitts.
Staley has now signed six of the state's top-35 prospects since 2014 and seven of 10 since she took over the program in 2008. The Gamecocks have signed a player from the state in each of their past three classes, most recently Columbia native MiLaysia Fulwiley, the No. 13 prospect in the Class of 2023.
They signed two other top-100 players last week: No. 12 Madisen McDaniel and No. 33 Adhel Tac.
McDaniel, a 5-9 point guard from Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was South Carolina's first commitment in the class. She averaged 18.6 points, 5.4 assists, 5.2 steals and 4.3 rebounds per game in her junior season at Bishop McNamara.
Tac, a 6-5 center from Grand Prairie, Texas, once ranked as high as No. 12 but dropped after she missed most of her junior year with an undisclosed season-ending injury. She averaged 14.1 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.3 blocks as a sophomore in 2021-22.
After graduating its entire 2022-23 starting lineup, the No. 1 Gamecocks opened the 2023-24 season with two blowout victories over top-25 teams. They beat No. 14 Notre Dame 100-71 in Paris on Nov. 6, then set program records for points scored and margin of victory against a ranked opponent in a 114-76 rout of No. 19 Maryland.
South Carolina (2-0) hosts Clemson (3-0) at Colonial Life Arena on Thursday (7 p.m., SEC Network) and will be playing for its 13th straight win in the series.

CAMDEN, S.C. — Camden High's Joyce Edwards, one of the nation's top girl's high school recruits, will be playing college basketball for the home team.
Edwards announced Wednesday night she is signing with Dawn Staley and the South Carolina Gamecocks. She made the decision surrounded by friends, family, and her schoolmates at Camden High, choosing the Gamecocks over LSU and Clemson.
"I asked all of the coaches questions, and I feel like Dawn responded the best," Edwards said. "I feel like she's really reliable and someone I can continue my athletic career with."
Edwards is the number two overall recruit in the nation in the class of 2024, according to ESPN/HoopGurlz recruiting rankings.
She said she made her final decision last Sunday after watching the Gamecocks dismantle Maryland 114-76. But it wasn't just athletics that led her to the choice.
"They're highly academic program, their honors program, is something that really attracted me," Edwards said.
“Joyce is an incredibly blessed athlete that has transcended three high school sports,” USC Coach Staley said after the announcement in a statement. “As she begins her college career with her focus on basketball, look for her to excel on this platform. She is gifted with size, speed, skill and an uncommon feel for the game. Her intelligence on the court and in the classroom will not be denied. We cannot wait to begin our journey with this young woman.”
Edwards was named the 2023 USA Today High School Sports National Athlete of the Year after claiming the organization’s Girls Rising Start Athlete of the Year in 2022. The state's reigning Gatorade Player of the Year, Edwards averaged 28.5 points, 13.6 rebounds, 3.5 steals, 2.9 assists and 2.6 blocks last season as she helped lead the Camden girls program to its first state championship since 1981. In the 3A state title game against Wren, the 5-star prospect scored 33 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and had five steals in the win.
The 6'2" Edwards also went over the 3,000-point mark in her career during that state title contest.
She was also the 2022-2023 MaxPreps Female National Athlete of the Year and was named to the 2023 USA Women's U19 National Team that won the gold meal.
