A few of our most popular commercial and industrial electrical services include but are not limited to:

Circuit Breakers

Tripped Circuit Breakers

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.

Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

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

Dead Power Outlets

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.

Residential Electrician vs. Commercial Electrician in Charlotte:
What's the Difference?

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.

Truist closing bank branches across NC, including near Charlotte and the Triangle

Truist bank plans to close more branches in the Charlotte region, as well as elsewhere in North Carolina, as the bank grapples with $750 million in companywide cuts, including layoffs.

Charlotte-based Truist will close branches at 818 Church St. N. in downtown Concord and 2414 West Franklin Blvd. in Gastonia on March 19.

Seven more branches North Carolina will close on the same day, according to the bank’s filings with the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks. Those branches are: 201 W. Market St. and 1310 Battleground Ave, Greensboro; 3410 Robinhood Road, Winston-Salem; 3405 Hillsborough Road, Durham; 1301 Eastchester Drive, High Point; 1000 Village Market Place, Morrisville; and 1803 N. Sandhills Blvd., Aberdeen.

More customers are banking digitally with Truist, spokesman Brain Davis told The Charlotte Observer in an email interview. As a result, the bank is closing 3% of its 285 branches North Carolina in March 2024, based on customer behavior, branch traffic and transaction volume.

“For the vast majority of branches that are closing, clients will have access to a branch about 2 1/2 miles away on the average,” Davis stated.

In March 2022, the bank closed five Charlotte-area branches because of overlap following the BB&T and SunTrust merger that formed Truist in 2019. In total, Truist planned to close 800 branches .

When a branch closes, Truist gives customers plenty of notice, Davis said. They were sent letters in mid-December explaining the closure and directions to the nearest location. Notices inside the branches were also posted.

Clients won’t experience any changes with accounts with the closings, other than those with safe deposit boxes, Davis said.

“We’ll continue to offer access to more than 1,900 branches and 2,900 ATMs — one of the most expansive branch and ATM networks in the communities we serve,” Davis added.

In September, Truist CEO Bill Rogers said there will be sizable” layoffs at the bank as part of a $750 million companywide cost-cutting plan. The layoffs are to take place between the third quarter of this year and the first quarter of 2024. The plan also includes consolidating leadership roles for fewer layers of management.

Truist also has missed profit estimates.

The bank reported a net income of $1.1 billion in the third quarter ending Sept. 30, compared to $1.5 billion the same time last year.

As of last year, Truist had more than 50,000 workers throughout the U.S., including more than 3,000 workers in the Charlotte area. Truist is headquartered at 214 N. Tryon St.

NC wildlife officials stocking new hybrid bass species in Lake Norman

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The next time anglers reel in a big one on Lake Norman, they may be surprised at what's on the end of their line, as North Carolina wildlife officials announced a new hybrid bass species is coming to some of the state's biggest lakes.

The hybrid bass species, known as the F1 Hybrid bass, is a cross between largemouth bass and Florida bass. Wildlife officials hope the new species will have hybrid vigor, which means they will grow faster and larger than other bass, which are native to North Carolina waters.

The F1 Hybrid bass will be stocked in Lake Norman, Jordan Lake and Lake Gaston, according to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. The program is aimed to improve largemouth bass populations by increasing the number of trophy bass in North Carolina lakes.

“F1 hybrid bass are a new tool to fisheries managers," Corey Oakley, the assistant chief of the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission's Inland Fisheries, said. "We hope these hybrids will increase opportunities for anglers to catch trophy bass where we stock them.”

For the latest breaking news, weather and traffic alerts, download the WCNC Charlotte mobile app and enable push notifications.

North Carolina wildlife officials partnered with Bass Anglers for NC Lakes, a nonprofit with the goal of improving the quality of largemouth bass in North Carolina, for the initiative. The nonprofit gave the state $30,000 to purchase F1 Hybrid bass fingerlings for stocking. The Wildlife Resources Commission will continue to stock F1 hybrids to maintain the population because their offspring are no longer F1 Hybrids, according to a news release. This means the offspring won't have hybrid vigor like their parents.

“We are so excited to partner with N.C. Wildlife on this project,” Chuck Murray, the president of Bass Anglers for NC Lakes, said in a press release. “This project is unique in that anglers can contribute and make a huge difference in stocking our lakes. We believe this project will be a success and enhance our lakes for generations to come. We believe this will give every angler (young and old) a better chance at a trophy bass on any given day.”

F1 Hybrid bass have been stocked in Lake Norman since 2020. More than 170,000 bass fingerlings have been stocked in Lake Norman since 2021.

State wildlife officials began stocking them in Lake Gaston last summer. NCWRC staff will collect genetic and population data from fishing surveys and tournament weigh-ins through 2030 to determine future strategies.

Bisonte Pizza Co. brings a taste of Buffalo, New York, to three locations in the Charlotte area. ”We have a very loyal fan base, and I think that’s what makes it,” said Jordan Cheesman, manager of Bisonte Pizza Co.

So, what is Buffalo-style pizza? “New York is thin. Chicago’s thick. We’re right in the middle,” she said. At Bisonte, cheese is shredded on site and the sauce is made in-house. “Really, we’ve just got the best.”

Feeding a crowd? Check out the massive sheet pizza. At 18”x26”, you get 3 square feet of pizza — that’s 24 squares.

Since 2005, eeZ has been serving “the freshest, most creative sushi” in Huntersville’s fast-evolving Birkdale Village. Owner Alan Springate says the restaurant’s popularity in the Lake Norman area stems from its insistence of only serving the highest quality fish. EeZ has chosen to work with companies that focus on environmental sustainability.

Master sushi chef Rifali Almunir and head sushi chef Son Nyugen have been with the company for years, focusing on the quality of both the sushi and the dishes served to guests. “Both of those guys are amazing,” Springate said.

He also wanted to thank the restaurant’s customers. “Can’t thank the readers enough. We really appreciate all the support we’ve gotten,” Springate told CharlotteFive. “We’ll keep doing our best to keep giving you the best product and we appreciate all the support we’ve gotten.”

Springate wanted to shout out the restaurant’s guests in Huntersville at Birkdale and in Charlotte. “They’ve always been so supportive of us as we’ve gone through a remodel,” he said. “They’ve always come out and support us in the greatest way. We just owe them the thank you for getting us here today.”

Fun fact: You might know eeZ’s sister restaurant, The Cowfish, located at SouthPark in Charlotte. (The Cowfish made it to the Top Four in the sushi contest!).

Fast-casual taqueria Que Fresa was inspired by Flores’ wife, Paola and named after “Mexican slang for a preppy person.” Inside and out, you’ll see plenty of pink decor and artwork and packaging accented with calaveras, giving the Day of the Dead vibes. Guests have their pick of 14 tacos — with options including street tacos and “preppy tacos” — that they can munch on inside or take to the patio, filled with tables and umbrellas.

The street taco menu has options such as carnitas, al pastor, chicken tinga and lengua, while the preppy menu shakes things up with tofu chile, roasted ‘shrooms and fun choices like La Toxica, made with fried chicken, mango buffalo sauce, carrot and celery slaw with blue cheese and crema mango salsa.

Juan Romero, Que Fresa’s executive chef, expressed gratitude on behalf of the team to everyone who voted.

“I want to thank you, Charlotte, for choosing us among the best tacos in the city. We will do our best to maintain ... good flavors and to offer something different to the community. That’s what we want, that’s what we want to do, and we want to be the best. Thank you, Charlotte.”

A second location is on the way, as well. While the space in uptown Charlotte is under construction, a few pop-ups have been held to introduce the brand to customers there.

“We put in countless hours of hard work to create this brand, and it’s been so rewarding to see how much Charlotte loves Que Fresa. We are extremely excited to serve uptown,” Flores previously told CharlotteFive.

GGC Smokehouse owner Eric Meza started his food truck after his backyard brisket got a glowing response from neighbors. Now, he and his wife, Shelley, specialize in Texas-style smoked brisket, along with pulled pork, ribs and sausage.

“It all started with a small smoker in the backyard — and family,” Eric told CharlotteFive. They would come over for holidays, and he would smoke a butt or a brisket. “’You should try to sell this,’” they would tell him, and he never believed them.

But then one day, he decided to bring some samples to the neighborhood pool to ask people their opinions. “’This is the best brisket we’ve ever had,’” neighbors told him.

The couple took the time to get the meats right, and you can now find them at GGC Smokehouse’s food truck.

We caught up with them in Concord, where we heard all about the sides, too — specifically, Shelley’s popular garlic-and-bacon green beans sauteed in butter. Other sides include mac and cheese and baked brisket beans.

But the brisket, of course, and the green beans are the reason people come back for more. “People just come up and just talk about green beans,” Eric said.

“We just want to say thank you very much to everyone that has shared and voted for us,” Shelley said. “We are very excited and thankful and blessed.”

Boardwalk Billy’s Raw Bar & Ribs has been a popular spot in the Charlotte area for 25 years.

The restaurant has two local locations. It’s decked out with surfboards, beach signs and other Jimmy Buffet-inspired themes, is designed to make you feel like you’re on the coast even in the city. The University location is even on the water.

“It’s kind of like your vacation spot in Charlotte. You don’t have to travel to the beach … it’s one of the only places in Charlotte where you can eat right on the water,” manager Logan Thompson told CharlotteFive. “Something that we have that you won’t find in Charlotte often is frozen drinks. We have those all year round.”

While Boardwalk Billy’s is known for its tropical drinks and rotating list of craft beers, it’s also a great place to grab seafood, barbecue and other Southern staples. All of the meats are smoked in house overnight, using the restaurant’s proprietary dry rub recipe.

“We want to thank everybody who voted for us in the CharlotteFive contest for the best bar in Charlotte. We look forward to serving you in the future,” Thompson said.
