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 James Island:
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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Proposed upgrades to an intersection on James Island appear to be concerning some neighbors.

Charleston County’s recommended plan requires removing two grand oak trees at the intersection of Camp Road and Fort Johnson Road, an act that some James Islanders deem unnecessary.

Tuesday, the James Island Board of Zoning Appeals will meet to review the request to remove the trees.

According to a local advocacy group, they are 150-year-old grand oaks.

The town of James Island said removing the trees is needed in order to move forward with the intersection improvements, one councilman is wondering if there is any way these trees can be saved.

The intersection of Camp Road and Fort Johnson Road is one of the four areas on James Island that Charleston County has determined needs safety improvements. The first two Grand Oaks that line Camp Road are the trees in question.

One proposed plan for the intersection adds a turning lane, taking out many of the trees. But, the option the county recommends is a compact roundabout, only removing two trees.

James Island Councilman Garett Milliken said that’s still too many. He said the trees are perfectly healthy Grand Oaks and taking the first two trees could set the precedent for taking more in the future.

But he acknowledges the intersection improvement project must go forward.

“I believe that both goals can be realized. I do believe that nothing is carved in stone here with respect to the plans. And I feel that if the engineers can find a solution to saving these trees, that solution can carry over to other projects,” Milliken said.

However, James Island Mayor Bill Woolsey, said he disagrees.

He said they will continue to review the intersection with the county, making sure there is no way to avoid taking the trees.

For now, he said he thinks this plan is best for the town.

“This relatively small traffic circle is the best option. And if we have to sacrifice two trees of the over 40 on the road, I just think that is the responsible thing to do,” Woolsey said.

The county provided a statement saying they recommend this option because it saves more trees than the other options they provided and improves the safety of the intersection.

“Charleston County Public Works recommends the construction of an urban compact roundabout at Fort Johnson Road and Camp Road to improve the safety of the intersection. This type of roundabout will save as many Grand Oak trees as possible and require the acquisition of the least amount of right of way,” the County said in a statement.

If you’re interested in sharing your opinion with the town of James Island regarding the intersection plan and tree removal, you can email kcrane@jamesislandsc.us.

Mayor: 2 illegal stop signs cause confusion, controversy in James Island neighborhood

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Two fake stop signs have been found in one James Island neighborhood, which the mayor says has caused confusion and controversy between town officials and locals.

A neighbor’s security camera captured the Town of James Island’s public works department removing the illegal stop signs from the corner of Clearview Drive and Tennant Street on Oct. 21.

“You cannot put your own stop signs out. You can always come to the town and make a request, and it will always be merited,” Mayor Bill Woolsey said. “We won’t often be able to put them up, but you can’t put them up yourself, and how we respond is we immediately contact SCDOT. We would have been very surprised if they put a stop sign out there without telling us beforehand.”

A worker could be seen wiggling one of the signs a couple of times before lifting it out of the ground and placing it in the back of a truck.

Not only were the signs put in illegally, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, but the ground next to the street was painted with white stop bars, as well.

“It’s the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I hope it doesn’t spread,” Woolsey said. “[I’m surprised] someone would come and paint a line in the road and buy some online stop signs and install them themselves in the middle of the night or early in the morning.”

Deputies said they were patrolling the area the night before and didn’t see any new signs, but when they went back the next day, they said the signs, which were apparently purchased online, had been put in overnight.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation has also confirmed they have not installed any stop signs at the intersection.

Neighbors initially thought the stop signs were put in by DOT to help with speeders and said the fake signs hurts their ability to address the issue.

“I guess somebody duped us, and they were putting in fake stop signs,” neighbor Jim Boyd said. “They looked to all of us legitimate and 100% real. We are just in favor of anything and everything that we can get people to slow down. Yes, we understand first responders need to get here quickly as well, but we want everything and anything.”

However, Woolsey said he believes the signs did not pop up at random.

“If we find out who did it, they will be charged, and we believe that, most likely, it was someone who lives close by,” he said.

Woolsey also said there was a recent incident where an illegal speed bump was found and removed near the intersection. He said the speed bump had black and yellow stripes and was similar to one found in parking lots across the Lowcountry.

Congratulations to James Island head coach Jamar McKoy, the winner of SBLive South Carolina's Coach of Week award as voted by South Carolina high school sports fans.

This is the second consecutive week that SBLive voters have honored Coach McKoy. He received 85.86% of the state-wide vote as James Island (10-1) beat York 32-14 for the program’s first playoff win in more than a decade.

If you would like to nominate a coach, please email gary@scorebooklive.com or message us on Twitter or Instagram at @sblivesc.

Here's a look at the other great coaches who were nominated for this this week's honor:

Jason Winstead, Goose Creek

Goose Creek was limping along at 0-6 and going nowhere fast. That was then. Just look at the where they are now.

The Gators have won four in a row, including a 40-2 trouncing of West Ashley in the first round of the AAAAA playoffs.

Marc Morris, Carolina Forest

Carolina Forest got a tough draw with River Bluff in the first round of the playoffs and responded quite well with a 42-28 win. The Spartans are 8-4 after playing a brutal non-conference schedule and they’re winning at the right time.

Morris is a quarterback-whisperer, too, and he’s got a good one in Scott Saylor. The Spartans could be a tough out in the playoffs.

Russell Zehr, Cane Bay

Can you defend the run? If you can’t, you’re in trouble with Cane Bay. The Cobras just throttled Ashley Ridge 30-13. They're now 8-2 and in the second round of the AAAAA playoffs.

Scott Earley, Westside

The Rams are humming along at 9-2 after winning six games a year ago. They just beat Midland Valley 45-35 in the first round of the AAAA playoffs. Westside has won five consecutive games.

Reggie Shaw, Byrnes

Byrnes means state championships. The Rebels are again a force to be reckoned with after turning back Hillcrest 31-28 in the first round of the AAAAA playoffs. They can throw it and they can run it.

The Rebels endured a tough 25-22 loss to Dorman that cost them the region title. But they came right back with a win over Gaffney and then the playoff game.

Neil Minton, Florence Christian

Florence Christian surprised defending SCISA AAA champion Hilton Head Christian 43-36 in the playoffs. The Eagles are 6-6 but two of the losses were by one point each.

Three years ago, James Island had a mediocre football program.

The Trojans finished the season 5-5 and were searching for an identity under first-year head coach Jamar McKoy.

In three short seasons, McKoy, who came to the James Island from Hunter Huss High School in Gastonia, N.C., has built the Trojans into one of the best programs in the Lowcountry.

Liam Nixon threw for 187 yards and Amor Scott scored two touchdowns to lead James Island past York, 32-14, on Nov. 4 before a raucous crowd at The Backyard at James Island Charter School.

The Trojans (10-1) will face Irmo, a 14-7 winner over North Myrtle Beach, at home on Nov. 11 in the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs.

“To win this time of year, you’ve got to play great football and win all three phases of the game,” McKoy said. “I thought we played a complete game in all three phases. Offense was able to move the ball, the defense bent a little bit, but didn’t break and the kicking game connected on some big field goals.

“It takes that kind of effort to win this time of year. We made some plays on both sides of the ball when we needed it the most.”

A week ago, the Trojans won their first region title since 1995. James Island’s playoff win was its first postseason victory since a 56-55 victory against Wren in 2009.

“This is a huge win for us, for the program and for James Island,” said James Island linebacker Walker Woodall, who finished with eight tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss. “We’ve been working toward this all season, especially the seniors.

“We were 5-5 my first season and to be where we are now is crazy. The players have put in the work, watched a lot of film and now all the hard work is paying off.”

The Trojans hadn’t played many close games during the regular season. Coming into the game, James Island had outscored its first 10 opponents, 402-62.

And while the Trojans jumped out to a 22-0 lead — on two short TD runs by Scott and another by Tykell Maxwell in the first half — the Cougars made things interesting in the second half.

Tristan Barnett came off the bench and threw for 193 yards to get the Cougars back into the game.

“You have to give (York) a lot of credit,” McKoy said. “They used another quarterback and we didn’t expect that. He threw some good balls and they didn’t quit.”

York’s Aiden Davis closed the gap to 22-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter with a 1-yard TD run.

But James Island answered when Gray Dangerfield connected on a 48-yard field goal with 9:13 to play in the game to give the Trojans a 25-7 advantage.

“That was a big field goal for us,” McKoy said. “Gray has a strong leg. We were confident he could make it from there.”

Barnett scored on a 10-yard run to narrow the Trojans’ lead to 25-14 with 7:42 to play.

The Trojans put the game away when Cam’Ron Williams recovered a Barnett fumble in the end zone for the final margin of victory.

“We want to play games in December, that’s the goal,” McKoy said. “Right now, we’re not worried about records of milestones. We want to play for state championships.”
