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 Jefferson:
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.

Effort difference-maker for Trojans

Chaquain Boone doesn’t look for the South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association’s weekly polls, so he would have missed that Cross High School’s boys basketball team wasn’t in the Class A top 10 earlier this month.

He does believe, though, the Trojans will be playing in March when the games matter the most.

“I believe our best basketball is ahead of us,” said Boone, a former Trojans player in his second season at the helm of the program. “We’re just motivated by winning games. If we win, everything will take care of itself.”

Boone’s bunch upped its overall mark to 8-2 with a 70-62 victory at Military Magnet on Jan. 3. The win was the third in as many Region 8-A games for the Trojans, too, so they’re in position to go after a region crown in a few weeks. Getting after it all 84 feet for 32 minutes a night has made the difference.

“We make mistakes like all teams do but we play hard consistently,” Boone said. “That’s what I’m proud of. If we have a good showing or bad showing offensively, we’re playing hard and that takes care of a lot of mistakes.”

Junior guard Jamez Way leads the team in scoring at 12 points per game and is coming off his best performance of the season. Way torched Military Magnet for 28 points, dunking three times, as he continues to work his way back from an injury that cost him some games early in the season. Way paces the team in assists, too.

“It was a blessing in disguise when he was hurt at the beginning,” Boone said. “He was able to sit and watch and was able to see things from a different perspective. He would say I see what you’re talking about. Also, it allowed some other guys to get more minutes.”

Junior guard Carmello Montgomery also averages double figures in points (11.6 ppg) and is the team leader in steals, bringing energy on both ends of the floor. Junior guard Dalanron Huger (9.8 ppg), junior guard Dominick Lampkin (8.4 ppg) and senior forward Jaivon Jefferson (8.3 ppg) are more constant contributors on the scoreboard. Huger also leads around the glass with 7.8 boards a game.

Freshman forward Caden Ramsey and Jefferson chip in 7.3 rebounds a game. Ramsey is the blocks leader and disruptor around the basket. His best work doesn’t appear on the Cross side of scorebook. It’s evidenced by what’s not in the opponent’s side of the scorebook.

“His length and tenacity make a big difference,” Boone said of his ninth-grader big man.

Junior forward Jabari Jefferson is another consistent contributor in scoring (5.5 ppg) and rebounding (5 rpg).

Cross travels to Charleston Math and Science on Jan. 6 and host Baptist Hill on Jan. 10 and Palmetto Scholars on Jan. 13 before traveling to St. John’s on Jan. 17.

Local historian requests Jefferson Davis markers for Arts & Heritage Center

Now that the city of Augusta has voted to erase all mention of former Confederate President Jefferson Davis from the 5th Street bridge, a local historian is requesting that two of historical markers on that bridge be added to the collections at the Arts & Heritage Center of North Augusta.

Milledge Murray wrote to the Augusta clerk of commission on Nov. 18 asking that the two plaques on the South Carolina side that bear Jefferson Davis’ portrait and information about his service in the Confederate States of America be added to the Center’s archives. Murray serves on the Heritage Committee for the Arts & Heritage Center of North Augusta.

Augusta commissioners were scheduled to address Murray’s request at their administrative meeting Nov. 29 but instead deferred to the advice of Augusta city attorney Wayne Brown, who said the request held “legal implications” and should first be reviewed during a future executive session.

Opponents of commissioners’ Nov. 15 decision to remove Davis’ name from the bridge have vowed to take the city to court, alleging that the commissioners’ action was illegal per Georgia’s Monument Protection Act to remove the historical markers.

The bridge is home to six historical markers commemorating the former Confederate president: the two plaques requested by Murray; two similar ones affixed to the Augusta side; and two mid-span engravings.

The South Carolina chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy donated the two plaques Murray is requesting to the city of Augusta 91 years ago. They now hang at the North Augusta end of the 5th Street Bridge; the two similar plaques were donated by the Georgia chapter and are affixed to the bridge on the Augusta side.

The plaques “represent a significant part of North Augusta’s history as the South Carolina entrance into Georgia at the Fifth Street location,” Murray wrote in his Nov. 18 letter to the Augusta clerk of commission. “In interpreting our history, we often refer to the Henry Shultz Toll bridge that was at the same location. That bridge stood from 1814 to the 1870’s when it was washed away by flooding.”

The flood that destroyed the toll bridge also destroyed the African-American town of Hamburg, which was at the South Carolina terminus of what is now the 5th Street/Jefferson Davis bridge.

Turning a hobby into a self-published book, North Augustan Bob Pyle took his camera to showcase the landscape of the Augusta area.

Pyle found his way to landscape photography in the 1970s. He decided to focus on his hobby and spent 13 years collecting images to share in his new book “Georgialina Images,” which features nature landmarks in North Augusta, Augusta and Aiken.

“I kind of like having the idea of something to publish with your name on it, it’s kind of neat,” Pyle said.

Pyle photographed a variety of locations including Aiken’s Hopelands Gardens, Brick Pond Park in North Augusta and the Augusta River Canal in Georgia. Small paragraphs detail the history and impacts of the properties.

Pyle worked on the project for 18 months and published over 100 images from the region. He wanted to share some of the beauty with his loved ones.

“I think this will have mainly regional and local appeal,” he said. “What I am really trying to do is get the book out there and let people see it and enjoy it.”

The book can be purchased for $32 at four locations throughout the region: North Augusta Arts and Heritage Center, The Morris Museum of Art, Sacred Heart Cultural Center and Augusta Canal.

Rapid Reaction: KJ Jefferson outduels Spencer Rattler, Arkansas downs South Carolina

Arkansas’ KJ Jefferson won the quarterback battle, outdueling South Carolina’s Spencer Rattler, but it was a dominating offensive line that lifted the Razorbacks to a 44-30 victory over the Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon at Razorback Stadium in the SEC opener for both teams.

The No. 16 Razorbacks (2-0, 1-0) won the line of scrimmage and also got outstanding defensive play led by linebackers Drew Sanders, the Alabama transfer, and veteran Bumper Pool, to turn back the upset-minded Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1).

Rattler rallied South Carolina from an early 21-3 deficit. His 62-yard touchdown pass to Antwane Wells, Jr. got the Gamecocks to within 21-16 midway through the 3rd quarter.

But Jefferson answered with a 2-yard touchdown run on the 1st play of the 4th quarter, completing another long and methodical drive. This one covered 59 yards in 14 plays. Moments later, a costly turnover put the ball back in Jefferson’s hands and the Razorbacks’ leader came through once again, firing a 23-yard touchdown pass to Warren Thompson to extend the lead to 35-16.

Rattler was picked off in the end zone by Dwight McGlothern and the Razorbacks bled the clock on the strength of its offensive line. It was the LSU transfer’s 2nd interception in 2 games for Arkansas.

The Razorbacks established their dominance early at the line of scrimmage, scoring touchdowns on their first 3 possessions with demoralizing drives of 13, 12 and 12 plays covering 63, 75, and 61 yards respectively, to take a commanding 21-3 lead.

Rocket Sanders completed the first 2 marches with touchdown runs of 1 and 11 yards. He led the Hogs with 156 yards rushing.

In 11 plays of Arkansas’ opening possession, Jefferson or Sanders ran behind a forceful offensive line, covering 43 yards. The Razorbacks were a little more balanced on the 2nd drive with Jefferson completing all 6 pass attempts, for 49 yards, setting up Sanders’ 2nd scoring run.

The Gamecocks were able to answer in between the first 2 Arkansas scores with a field goal, catching the pursuing Razorbacks defense with a couple of big-play screen passes. A 43-yarder from Rattler to MarShawn Lloyd put South Carolina in range for a 28-yard field goal from Mitch Jeter.

Loyd got South Carolina in the end zone late in the 2nd quarter, capping an 11-play, 70-yard drive on a 7-yard run, but the PAT kick attempt failed and Arkansas took a 21-9 lead into halftime.

Arkansas’ victory stopped a 3-game losing streak to South Carolina and the Razorbacks improved to 6-2 all-time against the Gamecocks in games played in Fayetteville.

‘People just bounce off of him’: USC defense prepares for Arkansas’ KJ Jefferson

SEC play is underway for the Gamecocks, and they’ll start by facing a unique and talented dual-threat quarterback for No. 16 Arkansas.South Carolina will face KJ Jefferson, a 6-foot-3, 242-pound signal caller who led the team in rushing as the team finished 9-4 last season.

SEC play is underway for the Gamecocks, and they’ll start by facing a unique and talented dual-threat quarterback for No. 16 Arkansas.

South Carolina will face KJ Jefferson, a 6-foot-3, 242-pound signal caller who led the team in rushing as the team finished 9-4 last season. Jefferson on Saturday threw for 223 yards and three touchdowns, adding 62 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground in the team’s opening win over Cincinnati.

In preparation, the team will have to account for both Jefferson’s speed and his frame.

“People just bounce off of him back there,” head coach Shane Beamer said.

His game, Beamer and Gamecock defenders said, isn’t easy for the scout team to copy in practice.

Linebacker Brad Johnson said that the team is using “big cylinder dummies” during drills as one method of game planning and to work on tackling.

“It’s kind of hard to mimic that because I don’t think we have a QB on our roster that’s even close to that size right now,” Johnson said.

Added Beamer: “We’d have to take one of our defensive ends and make him a quarterback.”

If USC did just that, they might look to 6-foot-4, 250-pound edge rusher Terrell Dawkins, or Jordan Strachan at 6-5, 245 pounds. Or, from the offense, 6-foot-3 Nate Adkins is the heaviest tight end at 252 pounds. Do-it-all tight end Jaheim Bell is also 6-3 but 10 pounds lighter than Jefferson.

Of the quarterbacks, Braden Davis is the tallest at 6-foot-5 but is listed at 205 pounds, and the 6-foot-4 Jalen Daniels is the heaviest QB at 215 pounds.

Arkansas’ starting running back Raheim Sanders also bolsters the attack. He picked up 117 yards against the Bearcats on Saturday. With Sanders and Jefferson, the team likes to design run-pass options for the two.

“You got KJ who can run, he can pass, too, so he’s good on both sides,” linebacker Mo Kaba said. “And you got a running back that’s good, has good balance, good power, good speed.”

What makes the Razorbacks running attack so effective, to Beamer, are the formations the team can employ, which he attributed to good coaching.

Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman, who coached with Beamer as assistants at Georgia, has spent years as an offensive line coach.

The perimeter blocking of the wide receivers, combined with the way the offensive line blocks, creates the gaps for Arkansas’ running backs to utilize. This helped give the Razorbacks control in its home opener.

“You can’t see any of the Cincinnati defensive linemen on tape because they’re covered up by double teams,” Beamer said.

Arkansas also likes to play fast, Beamer said, which can aid South Carolina in practice this week.

The USC defense plays against a high-speed offense in practice, and that tempo was on display at times against Georgia State. South Carolina’s quarterback, Spencer Rattler, also has some mobility to him.

Though he’s not as big as Jefferson, Rattler can extend plays with his legs. He’s not a perfect comp for Jefferson, but his ability to help in the run game aids the Gamecock defense in preparing for Arkansas.

“We face that every day in practice,” Kaba said. “So we’re just going to game plan against it and we’re gonna get ready for them.”

Arkansas brings a heightened complexity in their run scheme compared with GSU due to the size of its linemen and the formations they use, whether it’s giving Jefferson an empty backfield or motioning players around before snapping the ball.

“You’ve got to be disciplined with your eyes against these guys,” Beamer said.

The Razorbacks led the SEC in rushing yards last season with 227.8 yards per game. South Carolina struggled defending ball carriers in 2021, as they had the fourth-lowest rush yardage defense in the league.

South Carolina kept Georgia State running backs at bay for the majority of Saturday, though they ultimately allowed 200 yards on the ground.

USC also didn’t record a sack on Georgia State’s Darren Grainger on Saturday but did record six quarterback hurries. Bringing pressure on its first SEC opponent is something the team will need to help get another win under its belt.
