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 Kershaw:
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.

Central South Carolina Megasite Receives CSX Select Site Designation

Select Sites are development-ready properties along the CSX network where standard land use considerations and comprehensive due diligence items have been previously addressed.

Select Sites are development-ready properties along the CSX network where standard land use considerations and comprehensive due diligence items have been previously addressed. These properties are able to meet the needs of a wide variety of manufacturers, significantly reducing the time required to construct facilities and ultimately bring products to market.

“South Carolina has a strong track record of attracting industrial projects with significant investment,” said Tom Tisa, head of business development at CSX. “The Central South Carolina Megasite is an outstanding location for another high-impact investment that capitalizes on the environmental advantages of rail and CSX’s commitment to helping customers lower their carbon footprint.”

CSX introduced the Select Site program in 2012 to better serve new and existing customers on its network and those of its short line partners. CSX works with Austin Consulting, a nationally known site-selection consulting firm, to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and certification process.

“It’s rare to find a property this large that is adjacent to both a railroad mainline and an interstate highway at an existing interchange, with all utilities on site,” said Jonathan Gemmen, senior director, Austin Consulting.

Access to the 1,426-acre site is located half mile north of Interstate 20, less than a 30-minute drive northeast from downtown Columbia.

“As Columbia and the Central SC Region continue to grow at a pace faster than the nation, this site receives more and more interest from prospects,” said Nelson Lindsay, president and chief executive officer of the Central SC Alliance.

Kershaw County identified the megasite property over 15 years ago as an opportunity to attract a large industrial user that could generate new jobs and investment with the potential to transform communities. Subsequently, Kershaw County performed all the necessary due diligence studies, such as environmental, archaeological, endangered species, wetland delineation and multiple geotechnical studies. Large portions of the megasite have been cleared and a 500,000-gallon water tank is under construction on the north end of the site.

“Kershaw County has the finest and most-ready megasite in the state", said Julian Burns, chairman of Kershaw County Council. "Taking part in the CSX Select Site program demonstrates Kershaw's commitment to economic development."

The Central South Carolina Megasite is now the third site in South Carolina with the CSX Select Site designation. This property is one of 26 properties across CSX’s service territory to meet the rigorous site- selection criteria.

Sumter transit riders could be without a ride for the next two weeks

SUMTER, S.C. (WIS) - People who use the Santee Wateree Paratransit System in Sumter, Kershaw, and Lee Counties could be denied rides for the next two weeks. That’s due to a driver shortage that’s only gotten worse.

Executive Director Lottie Jones points to the pandemic. She says since the beginning of it, they’ve been seeing fewer drivers.

But on Tuesday that shortage got so bad that they had to deny rides to 22 people, some of which are disabled.

“What could I say? All I could do was get off the bus and walk,” said rider Charlie Epps.

66-year-old Charles Epps is one of many denied a ride on Friday following a shortage of bus drivers at the Santee-Wateree Regional Transportation Authority.

Epps stated, “I got off the bus and usually I catch another bus going south, but now there’s no more bus.”

With his groceries in his hands, Epps had to finish his commute home on foot.

“We’ve been going through this for quite some time, but it’s really hard on this Tuesday. When we came in, we already knew we were going to be short, but we had already had everything planned out,” said Executive Director, Lottie Jones.

Lottie Jones refers to the shortage of drivers. She says on Tuesday four drivers called out. That’s after she had two drivers retire in late December. Another one got sick, and she doesn’t believe that driver will return.

She says, “Because of our staff being more of seniors, more or less we had a lot of our vehicle operators that resigned during that time because they were fearful of getting the virus.”

Jones says they are budgeted for 19 drivers but normally only have 12. Right now, they have five drivers for their transit system that provides rides for three different counties.

Jones is urging people who are interested in driving to apply at the link here.

Right now, they need both dispatchers and drivers and currently have 10 driver positions open.

Jones says there are three people currently in training, two drivers and one dispatcher, but again she does foresee this outage lasting for the next two weeks.

Oh deer! Whitetail slips and slides around inside of S.C. restaurant

KERSHAW, S.C. (WBTV) – A South Carolina restaurant had an unexpected patron charge through its doors earlier this week.

The owners of 521 Filling Station in Kershaw posted video surveillance footage to its Facebook page that shows a deer making its way into the eatery on Monday. 521 Filling Station is used to heavy foot traffic in and out of the door. But hoof traffic? Not so much.

”I’m in a meeting with the human resources officers and I start getting phone calls. So I step out and call and they’re like there’s a deer in the restaurant. And I said, ‘What?’ And they said, ‘There’s a deer in the restaurant!’ and I said you’re kidding me,” said co-owner Kevin Sims.

Video on the restaurant’s Facebook page shows that this situation was no joke. You can see a deer burst through the front glass door and slide right into the dining room of the restaurant.

”Came across the parking lot full head of steam. Hit the front door. Shattered glass everywhere. He slid over here and then there’s chaos,” he says.

A startled worker gets out of the way as the deer slips on the floor, knocking down chairs as it slides around the restaurant. The video shows all that chaos unfolding.

The animal eventually winds up in a booth before one of the workers got their hands on the deer and slid it across the floor and then back outside.

“He needed help to get out, so I helped him!” said Beth Truesdale, a server at the restaurant.

Truesdale cornered that deer and got it calm enough to be able to drag it out. The server showed her nerves of steel the entire time.

”I was just trying to get him. I’m a country girl it didn’t bother me,” she sa

When asked how she managed to stay so cool, calm, and collected she said it was simple. She had to get back to work.

”Servers only make $2.13 an hour. Most of them. So, I just needed him to leave so I could finish making my money,” she explained laughing.

“Never a dull moment @ THE 521,” the restaurant posted. Watch the original video below:

Kershaw Co. School District transportation issues cut educational time for special-needs student

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - S.C. Department of Education records show the Kershaw County School District cut the educational time for at least one special needs student this May and August through a breakdown in its transportation system.

There may be more students involved.

WIS obtained two written decisions from the SCDE through Stephanie Crow, the mother of a 7-year-old student, Laura Crow. The decisions were in response to Stephanie’s complaints.

Laura is diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, leaving her largely non-verbal and subject to seizures.

The documents outlined how the district illegally shortened Laura’s school days and access to educational services through either late arrivals to school or removing Laura from class. The impacted days included May 23–27 and August 1–19 of this year.

The documents show Laura lost 40 to 60 minutes of school time per impacted day.

Stephanie told WIS she first became aware of the missed time after the school nurse notified her on Aug. 3 that Laura missed a 1:50 treatment session despite the school not ending until 2:30.

Crow filed a complaint on Aug. 5 with the SCDE, triggering the first written decision. The decision reads in part:

On August 5, 2022, the Director of Special Services sent a District-wide email which read: “Principals, as we begin the school year, I would like to remind everyone that students that receive special needs transportation are to be dismissed at the same time as all other students in our buildings. We must ensure that all students are taught bell to bell.”

Crow filed a second complaint on Aug. 22, after discovering Laura was arriving at school up to an hour late.

Stephanie told WIS she put a phone in Laura’s bag to track her arrival.

“I feel like I can’t trust them, what person buys a phone I can’t trust [the district], what person goes and buys a phone and puts it in their backpack and tracks their kid? I mean, I did it because I’m afraid the school district isn’t doing what it’s supposed to be doing. I mean, that’s not normal,” she said.

The SCDE issued its decisions on Oct. 5 and Oct. 22, finding Laura’s days had been shortened and she’d lost the educational time.

The SCDE mandated a list of corrective actions, including providing Laura with make-up educational time and determining which other students may have been impacted.

The agency gave the district a year to come into compliance. As of the morning of Nov. 21, Stephanie said she’d only received “radio silence.”

After WIS contacted the district about the story on Nov. 21, Stephanie sent WIS a text stating the district had provided her with paperwork to begin the make-up process.

“I might be construed as a bit of a bully for pushing this and for fighting for Laura constantly. But that’s my job as her mom. My job is to hold people accountable when they’re not doing what they’re supposed to be doing. She doesn’t have a voice, but I do and I will use it to fight for her,” Stephanie said.

District spokesperson Becky Bean sent a statement reading:

“KCSD has addressed this transportation issue by requesting and receiving an additional special needs bus from the South Carolina Department of Education to shorten the length of ride time and ensure an on-time arrival to school.

We are aware of the corrective actions listed in the Letters of Resolution and will address all areas of noncompliance for this student and any other students impacted within the given timeframe.”

It’s unclear how many students may have been impacted by the shortened days.

South Carolina Department of Natural Resources released a report explaining how water might be playing a role in keeping earthquakes going

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — A group of local seismologists thinks they may have narrowed down the cause of recent earthquakes in Kershaw County to the Wateree River.

The theory, detailed in a new report issued Monday, has come together from geologists with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston.

They believe the initial earthquake may have allowed water from the Wateree River to seep into new cracks that opened from the original December earthquake, which has now set off additional tremors in the area.

Scott Howard, a geologist with SCDNR explains how the first earthquake changed the dynamic.

"When the first earthquake happened, what it may have done is re-adjusted the system and may have caused more fracture prosody and permeability, greater permeability as a result of that and each earthquake is changing that system, so how do you correlate that? Well, it isn't a one-on-one thing, so it isn't like the water levels in the river change and that causes an earthquake, it's just that the proximity of the water may be a way of getting water into the fracture system," Howard said.

"Well, I go back to the point ... if you look at the history of earthquakes in the southeast, you look at where they occur ... 90% of them are occurring in stream valleys, and they are occurring where there's water," Howard said.

Elgin Town Hall will be open and the public can come and view the meeting at our location.

Elgin resident William Pate has felt at least three of the tremors and says he's glad some research is being done. "I'm glad someone's looking into, we've all been freaked out about it around here."

Howard said all in all, the report was to help get information out to the public.

"We wanted to get out some good geological information about where the geological community stood on these earthquakes."

As for those in Kershaw County, the Town of Elgin plans to host a Virtual Earthquake Town Hall on Wednesday, June 27th.
