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 Indian Trailo:
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.

It took a little while longer but we’ve got the first baby born in Cabarrus County in 2023.

Cabarrus’ New Year Baby. Baby Evelyn “slept in” on New Year’s Day, according to our friends over at Atrium Health Cabarrus. But eventually Evelyn came into this world at 9:05 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 1. Mom Hailey Whitley and the whole family were quite happy.

Evelyn weighed six pounds 13 ounces and was a bundle of joy to all.

Little Evelyn was among several New Year’s babies born in the Atrium system – all beautiful. Don’t you love babies?!

Another New Year’s tradition. Most of us try to lose weight and to be more physically fit after all the holiday eating. One of the best ways is to walk (or run or bike). We’ve got several good places to walk, but mostly you have to drive to get there – to the parks and greenways.

Kannapolis is pretty good downtown, so is Concord. But those are only a small parts of our community.

An organization called Walk Score ranked the walkability, mass transit systems and bikability of the larger cities across the country. Scores and more information can be found online walkscore.com. Walk Score is a project done by Redfin, a real estate company, and Front Seat, a business incubator that helps businesses use technology and data.

Concord and Kannapolis didn’t fare well in the survey. Kannapolis ranked 38th out of the 52 largest North Carolina cities. Concord was 47th.

For comparison, the “most walkable” place in North Carolina is Boone with a score of 49. The Mountaineer town didn’t have a mass transit score but had a 33 for biking. Asheville was second (37) with 28 for transit and 33 for biking. Elizabeth City was third with a 36 with no transit score and 49 for biking.

The three worst walking cities were Mint Hill, Indian Trail and Clemmons. It’s easy to see why. There are major highways running through them and lots of suburban sprawl.

Concord suffers from many of the same issues. I live off Rock Hill Church Road and a few weeks ago I told you about walking back home from the car shop. There are too few sidewalks and major highways with no good way to get from one side to the other.

Kannapolis is not quite as bad but still sidewalks are scarce except downtown and newer neighborhoods.

Charlotte came out a little better in the ranking 23th and Salisbury was 20th.

Other cities in the area ranked this way: Monroe 34th, Mooresville 43rd and Huntersville 48th.

Connecting the greenways certainly will help. Another suggestion I have is to put sidewalks on the outside of new neighborhood berms. I’m interested to see what happens on Montford Avenue on the outside of the new Piper Glen.

A new grocery store at Kellswater Bridge. Several of you reported that a sign for Lowe’s Foods has gone up on the corner of Kannapolis Parkway and Rogers Lake Road.

MPV Properties is developing a 25-acre site there adjacent to the Kellswater Bridge development. Eventually there is expected to be about a 1,000 residential units in that development.

Right now Lowe’s is the only thing we know that is going in the development. It appears the shopping center will have two other buildings.

The plans show eight outparcels surrounding the Lowe’s center. They range from 1.09 acres to 2.66 acres. The 2.66-acre piece is on the corner.

The plan also shows the future Northwest Cabarrus High School on the opposite side of Kannapolis Parkway.

Sheriff’s Office open house. The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office will have an open house Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Stop by the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office on Saturday, January 7th, 2023 for our Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,” said Sgt. Cody Rominger. “We will have guided tours of the Sheriff's Office and Detention Center, displays from some of our specialized units, and refreshments. Officers from multiple divisions will be here to answer questions and a recruitment booth will be set up if you want to join our team! We hope to see you there!”

The sheriff’s office is at the corner of Corban Avenue and Church Street near the Cabarrus County Governmental Center and the Cabarrus County Courthouse.

I always say it looks like Gotham City with that big building blocking out the sun and casting shadows much of the day. The new courthouse is always massive.

Mini-rant but important. We’ve talked about this before, but it’s worth saying again. Yellow means caution and red means stop. It’s not speed up on yellow and go even faster on red.

This can be deadly mistake. Even if we arrive a few minutes late, let’s stop for signal lights. This problem seems to have gotten worse as traffic increases.

And while we’re ranting about road woes, slow down on Roberta Road near the new middle school and before you get to the round-about. We were at Frank Liske Park Monday and we literally heard tires screeching from the round-a-bout.

If you have a Friday Five, story suggestion or something I can rant about, email mplemmons@independenttribune.com or call or text 704-786-0001.

Indian Trail woman says she was scammed out of $23,000

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — A local woman says she was tricked out of more than $20,000 after getting an email that looked like it came from Apple iTunes.Karla Timpani said the scam started with an email that said she owed more than $125.

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. — A local woman says she was tricked out of more than $20,000 after getting an email that looked like it came from Apple iTunes.

Karla Timpani said the scam started with an email that said she owed more than $125. Now, she realizes there were red flags.

“For God’s sake, read the letter, look for typos, because this letter was filled with typos,” she told Action 9′s Jason Stoogenke. “I just kick myself for not doing the things that I should have done.”

Timpani said she knew she didn’t owe any money and wanted to clear that up, so she called the phone number that was included in the email.

“I was in a hurry, and I wanted to get this done and over with,” she said.

Timpani said the person who answered her call pretended to be with Apple. He walked her through the steps to undo the charge, but it ended up looking like Apple owed her thousands of dollars.

“That should have been a flag, too,” she said.

Timpani said the man pretended to panic about losing his job and begged her to go buy Bitcoin and gift cards from various stores to cover the difference.

She fell for it.

“I really thought that I had made a mistake, and I was trying to do the right thing and give him his money back and not get him fired,” she said.

Her bank told her it was a scam, but by that point, she had handed over $23,000.

“I flipped out crying,” she said. “It’s a nightmare. I’m kicking myself all the time.”

Timpani reported the scam to Apple and multiple agencies, including the FBI.

“I felt so alone,” she said. “If I can help just one person not get scammed this way or any way, that is what I am after.”

Action 9 offers this advice: If you get an email saying you owe money or ordered something you know you didn’t and you are worried, don’t trust the contact information on the message. Look up the information for the company directly and find out for sure before you do anything else.

INDIAN TRAIL – The Town of Indian Trail has been allocating funding received through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. ARPA’s goal is to combat the negative effects of COVID-19 by funding expenditures that improve or support the community.

Through ARPA, the town was allocated $12.7 million to assist in the response to the pandemic and rebuild a stronger community. The funds allocated by the U.S. Treasury office have specific areas in which they can be spent; Public Health and Economic Impact Addressing COVID; Replacing Lost Revenue; Providing Employee Premium Pay; and Infrastructure Investment (water and sewer, stormwater, or expanding access to broadband).

Indian Trail chose to use $10 million in ARPA funds to pay for the Union County Sheriff’s Office contract for the next two-and-a-half years. The town implemented this step using the approved Revenue Replacement Allowance.

By doing so, the town was able to create $10 million in surplus general funds to be used for projects to support the community.

To date, the town has been able to support the following organizations:

Athletic Associations

The town allocated $346,085 of fiscal year 2022 surplus funds to the Porter Ridge and Indian Trail athletic associations to support their programs, including field renovations, lighting upgrades and repairing ADA and safety hazards.

Local Fire Departments

Using $4,327,215 of the surplus funds, the town has purchased fire trucks for the Baker’s, Hemby Bridge and Stallings fire departments. The fire trucks are being custom built and are scheduled to be delivered sometime in fall 2023.

James B. Crump VFW Post 2423

The town provided $125,780 in surplus funds to the James B. Crump VFW Post 2423 to be used to make updates to the VFW Post building, including a new roof, kitchen upgrades, paint in the fellowship hall and additional storage.

Cameron’s House of Hope

Using $200,000 of surplus funds, the town was able to provide Cameron’s House of Hope with outdoor play equipment, athletic and exercise equipment, toys, clothes and a minibus to support their mission.

Water Lines

In partnership with Union County, the town is using $400,000 in surplus funds to provide water lines for Indian Trail residents in the Emerald Woods subdivision who are on well water.

Food for Families

Using $310,000 in surplus funds, the town will purchase a refrigerated truck, a refrigerator and freezer expansion, as well as non-perishable food items for the Food for Families backpack program, which supports students at local schools.

Union West Rotary

A $150,000 of the surplus funds will help the Union West Rotary purchase school supplies for the Back2School Bash; wheelchairs and walkers to support the Council on Aging; toys for the annual Holiday Heroes Toy Drive; and car seats and booster seats to support the Safe Kids Union County organization.

Indian Trail Lion’s Club

The Town will supply $11,000 of surplus funds to purchase a laptop and a special camera for the Indian Trail Lion’s Club to use during their free eye exams for children.

Common Heart

Using $165,000 in surplus funds, the town will purchase a walk-in cooler, a walk-in freezer, a commercial freezer, and a refrigerated truck for Common Heart to use when delivering food to residents in need.

Minibus

The town will use $90,000 of the surplus funds to buy a minibus for town hall. The bus will be used for field trips for the Primetime Players group as well as other activities that will support the residents.

“Receiving the ARPA funds was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the town,” said Adam McLamb, director of public works. “They allowed us to create surplus dollars in our general fund so we can support the local organizations that are helping our community. We continue to review requests from organizations and look forward to supporting additional projects and programs.”

Union County commissioners are considering rezoning an area of land off Ridge Road.

UNION COUNTY, N.C. — Union County residents are fighting against a potential wastewater treatment plant in Indian Trail.

The Union County board of commissioners said the current wastewater plant will age out very soon, and they wanted to have an open and transparent discussion with the community.

The area that's being considered for rezoning is off Ridge road, and some residents came out to address many concerns.

Some neighbors also addressed concerns about loud noise and awful smells saying they don’t want a sewage treatment plant in their own backyard.

Officials said they say they’re not expecting bad odors to be a major issue, with their current wastewater treatment plants receiving limited complaints over the years.

Officials will be voting on this Monday, Nov. 7

Indian Trail Man Is Sentenced To 30 Months In Prison For Scheme To Defraud COVID-19 Unemployment Insurance Benefit Program

Separately, Charlotte Man Was Sentenced to 24 Months after His Federal Supervision Was Revoked for COVID-19 Relief Loan FraudCHARLOTTE, N.C. – U.S. District Judge Robert J.

Separately, Charlotte Man Was Sentenced to 24 Months after His Federal Supervision Was Revoked for COVID-19 Relief Loan Fraud

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – U.S. District Judge Robert J. Conrad sentenced Joseph Ransome, 51, of Indian Trail, N.C., to 30 months in prison for wire fraud yesterday, for defrauding the COVID-19 Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit program, announced Dena J. King, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of North Carolina. Judge Conrad also ordered Ransome to serve three years of supervised release and to pay $44,172 in restitution.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a federal lawenacted March 29, 2020, designed to provide emergency financial assistance, including expanded UI benefits, to millions of Americans suffering the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to plea documents and statements made in court, from March 2020 through July 2020, Ransome received UI benefits to which he was not entitled. Court documents show that Ransome applied for fraudulent UI benefits in multiple states, including in North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, and elsewhere. Ransome filed for the UI benefits based on fraudulent claims, including non-existent employment and false reason for termination. For example, Ransome falsely claimed to have been laid off from Walmart in North Carolina due to COVID-19, when in fact Ransome had been laid off due to misconduct. Ransome also falsely claimed prior employment at Target, BestBuy, Lowe’s, and Hobby Lobby, and falsely claimed that he had been laid off from some of these companies because he had been diagnosed with COVID-19 or due to lack of work because of the coronavirus when he had never in fact been employed by those companies. As a result of the fraudulent scheme, during the relevant time period, Ransome applied for more than $163,000 in fraudulent UI benefits provided under the expanded CARES Act.

In a separate case, Judge Conrad revoked Bryon Jones’s supervised release after the defendant violated its terms by engaging in a scheme to defraud the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). According to court documents in this case, Jones, 66, of Charlotte, used false and fraudulent business information to apply for and receive through his business, Ramses Air Freight & Transport, Inc., $142,900 in COVID-19 relief funds disbursed by the SBA under the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program. Jones, who was on a 10-year term of federal supervised release for a previous drug trafficking conviction, was ordered to serve 24 months in prison and five years of supervised release for the new violations.

In making today’s announcement, U.S. Attorney King commended the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the FBI, and the Atlanta Regional Office of the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of the Inspector General, for their investigation of the Ransome case. Jones’s investigation was conducted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the SBA and the U.S. Probation Office.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Caryn Finley was in charge of the prosecution against Ransome. The Jones prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Graham Billings.

Anyone with information about allegations of attempted fraud involving COVID-19 can report it by calling the Department of Justice’s National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721 or via the NCDF Web Complaint Form at: https://www.justice.gov/disaster-fraud/ncdf-disaster-complaint-form. Members of the public in the Western District of North Carolina are also encouraged to call 704-344-6222 to reach their local Coronavirus Fraud Coordinator.
