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.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Black Pride 2022 is wrapping up this weekend, with Saturday's Pride Expo Extravaganza turning out to be one of the week's biggest events.

This year's theme is #BlackAF.

Quin Williams, Community Outreach Director of Charlotte Black Pride, said it's all about uplifting each other.

"We are just coming together to continue to showcase Black beauty, Black talent, and not having to choose between being Black and part of the LGBTQ community," she said. "It's just a gumbo of all of us coming together along with allies to celebrate and uplift Black voices, which has been going on for 17 years."

Williams said organizers are excited to have a bigger presence than in years past. She attributed the added donations from the community to more supporters taking notice of their efforts. And it's shown; she said seeing dozens of vendors under one roof, is meaningful.

"It means oneness. It means togetherness," Williams said. "It means we are actually taking a moment to put aside any differences we may have and celebrate and uplift those differences instead of pointing them out."

Charlotte Black Pride will close out a week of events on Sunday with The Skyline brunch and concert.

Several Charlotte-area counties rise to CDC's 'high' community level for COVID-19

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The BA.5 subvariant continues to cause a steady rise in COVID-19 cases in North Carolina.

Several counties in the Charlotte area have moved into the CDC's highest COVID-19 level when it comes to community spread.

It’s how the CDC indicates the level of risk in your specific area, and in the high level, the CDC recommends masking indoors.

Each week, the CDC looks at a combination of metrics, including hospitalizations and new cases, to determine each county’s risk.

“However you slice it, there’s a lot of COVID-19 out there," Dr. David Priest with Novant Health, said.

It’s all fueled by the BA.5 subvariant of omicron, the most contagious strain yet.

According to the CDC, four weeks ago, only four of the 100 North Carolina counties were in the high zone. The next week, that number bumped up to 18 counties. Last week, 41 counties were orange and now, the latest data released Thursday shows 50 counties in the state are at the highest level.

Mecklenburg County has not moved out of the medium level yet.

“Before we get there if we can continue to get folks engaged and get them to know that covid is spreading and it's here and while we hoped we’d have a quieter period in the summer, we’re not," Mecklenburg County Health Director, Dr. Raynard Washington, said.

However, several surrounding counties were upgraded this week, including Gaston, Lincoln, Catawba, Cabarrus and Rowan County.

“We’ve seen a slow increase over the last few weeks so we are not surprised about this but we are concerned," Rowan County Health Director, Alyssa Harris, said.

Harris said hospitalizations are going up but luckily, cases are not as severe and the healthcare systems are not overwhelmed.

She’s seeing a lot of people get reinfected because of the BA.5 subvariant, which has the ability to evade immunity from vaccines or past infections.

“We should be encouraging everyone who is in an indoor, crowded space to go back to masking, to consider social distancing, of course washing your hands staying home if you’re sick," Harris said. "Those really basic things that we can do can really reduce the spread of illness during this time.”

‘Friendship is essential to the soul’: Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. holds 83rd Grand Conclave in Charlotte

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated was founded on Nov. 17, 1911, on the campus of Howard University.

Omega Psi Phi's last Grand Conclave in Charlotte was in 2002. Omega Psi Phi is an historically African American fraternity with over 100 years of history.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - For nearly 112 years, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated has maintained its commitment to manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift.

Omega Psi Phi was founded on Nov. 17, 1911, on the campus of Howard University by three undergraduate men Edgar Amos Love, Oscar James Cooper, and Frank Coleman along with their faculty adviser Ernest Everett Just.

The organization is one of the five oldest historically Black fraternities with more than 700 chapters and more than 200,000 members across the globe.

More than 7,000 members of the organization are participating in their 83rd international convention known as the Grand Conclave. This is the first time it’s been held in Charlotte in 20 years. The last Grand Conclave was in 2018 in New Orleans and was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.

Keith Smith was initiated into the Xi Psi chapter at South Carolina State University in 2013. He said he’s thankful for everyone to be able to come together this weekend.

“It’s very special to have thousands of like-minded individuals descend upon the city to fellowship, have fun, and recognize the achievements of these great brothers,” Smith said.

Charles Sears is 93 years old, he fondly remembers his first days of service and brotherhood after being initiated into the Iota Psi chapter in 1952 at Ohio State University.

He will be celebrating 70 years in the fraternity this November. Sears says he’s thankful to participate in the 83rd Grand Conclave.

“It’s a real opportunity and privilege for me. I’m 93,” Sears said.

Members told WBTV this is the largest Grand Conclave in the Fraternity’s history.

“It means a lot that we are worldwide. We’re all over the world now. We are trying to be good men,” Sears said. “That’s important because there are so many men that are not good men.”

Mecklenburg County Deputy County Manager Anthony Trotman was initiated into the fraternity’s Gamma Alpha Alpha chapter in 1989 at the University of Alaska-Anchorage.

“This weekend means it’s like a family reunion. It’s a conference and we meet to decide on the leadership of the fraternity, we do social action programs, and we award awards,” Trotman said. “It’s a weekend of brotherhood and friendship.”

One of the organization’s signature mandated programs is the Talent Hunt. It was created in 1945, and the first one was held here in the Queen City in 1946.

Members started the program to help art students in underserved communities get opportunities to expand their craft and talents.

“We will award scholarships to all of the individuals. It’s not a competition, it’s more of a demonstration to sit on that we uplift those individuals in the performing arts, Trotman said. “We believe in the arts, we believe in culture, and we have never stopped lifting the arts up since 1946.”

Yameen Thomas was in high school in 2002 when the last Grand Conclave was in Charlotte. He fondly remembers seeing the men of Omega Psi Phi, little did he know he would become a member himself six years later.

“My first interaction with Omega Psi Phi was [when] I was driving down McDowell Street coming from the grocery store and it was a whole sea of purple and gold,” Thomas said.

Thomas was initiated into the Delta Sigma chapter at Eastern Kentucky University in 2008.

Throughout this weekend, Thomas and thousands of members will do community service projects ranging from feeding the homeless, school supply donations, a STEM Academy at Johnson C. Smith University, and more.

“You sign up for service, you sign up to serve from day one, that’s when the work begins,” Thomas said. “The importance is to always maintain your enthusiasm in everything you do, continue to serve those who need to be served, and look for ways to be of value.”

As they continue to handle business, serve the greater Charlotte community, and fellowship, they’re keeping their motto: “Friendship is Essential to the Soul” at the forefront.

“[Some] of these men we’ve never met a day in our lives but when we see each other it’s all love,” Smith said.

“You have to be a friend in order to have a friend. We believe that friendship is essential to the soul,” Trotman said.

Drivers and CRTPO members against proposal for tolls on I-77 south of Uptown Charlotte

An unsolicited proposal wants to build toll lanes on this part of Interstate 77 through Charlotte.

Another battle brewing in Charlotte over toll lanes. This time heading south from Uptown to the South Carolina state line.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Another battle is brewing in Charlotte over toll lanes. This time heading south from Uptown to the South Carolina state line, but the plan and the people behind it are a secret.

The proposal was brought to the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) meeting, and the lack of transparency didn’t go over well with local leaders.

People WBTV talked to agrees something needs to be done about the traffic we see on I-77 daily during rush hour. It’s just how those plans will look and if they’ll be charging drivers to get to their destination faster.

“I think it might not be a good idea,” Charlotte resident Earline Irvin-Hutchinson said.

An unsolicited proposal wants to build toll lanes on this part of Interstate 77 through Charlotte.

It would run about 11 miles from the Brookshire Freeway in Uptown to the South Carolina state line.

“I don’t like it,” resident Trevon Barbarji said.

Drivers gave a resounding ‘no’ to the idea of more toll lanes on I-77.

Elected leaders on the CRTPO board shared a similar sentiment.

“I am 100 percent opposed to this, and I also was heavily involved in the debacle of I-77 in the north and I’m still not over it,” Pat Cotham, the at-large member of Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners who sits on the CRTPO, said referencing the uproar the I-77 express lanes caused years ago.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation lacks the money for major road upgrades. Toll lanes become the proposed alternative.

“For the first face that I’d have to pay every time I come back home from home because I use that interstate to come home every day, I mean not matter what the fee is, it adds up,” Barbarji said.

Still though, many acknowledge that traffic can be busy.

“If you live here, you see every time 4 o’clock, 6 o’clock it gets pretty heavy,” Barbarji said.

Charlotte Mayor Pro Tem Julie Eiselt wants transparency but said they should also look into solutions for the congestion.

“Something has got to happen to 77 south in my opinion,” she said.

“The roads definitely need to be widened; three lanes are not enough for the middle of Charlotte,” Barbarji said.

CRTPO is upset this plan was submitted in secrecy, and not that they want more information from the state DOT and company that proposed this plan.

“Now that would be even better if they just widen the road and repair the roads, that would be even better, that would be perfect,” Irvin-Hutchinson said.

The board voted to study the area to see what the cost would be, the number of lanes, and impact on neighborhood before anything moves forward.
