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.

Here's what Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan has to say about the chase that left a 17-year-old student dead

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — Early Sunday Morning, 17-year-old Laila Houser, died in a crash on U.S. Highway 1 following what the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office described as a chase.

Houser was headed toward Lugoff when her vehicle left the road and ran into the wood line, striking a tree.

Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan spoke about the incident and what had unfolded moments before.

"One of our deputies was out on just regular patrol," Boan said. "He passed by the Dollar General and realized two vehicles parked in the side parking lo. Of course, it was after 1 o'clock, and the business was closed."

Boan said there is a focus on law enforcement in that area, as just three days earlier, he said an alarm went off with an unsecured door at that Dollar General.

Boan says his deputy made contact with the two vehicles in the parking lot of Dollar General at 1:12 a.m., and moments later one vehicle pulled away.

"He's got someone fleeing from him, so he starts to try and leave, and he gets back in his vehicle," Boan said. "She's got a pretty decent lead at this point from him, so he starts traveling down the road to catch up to her. Unfortunately, when he got as close as he could to her, is when the accident took place."

At 1:13 is when the vehicle flees, and at 1:14 a.m., the vehicle crashes.

In a timeline News19 received, the deputy was 432 feet from the vehicle when the crash occurred.

But what constitutes a chase?

"We do have rules involved," Boan said. "One of the things I tell my guys all the time is, whenever you're chasing somebody you need to ask yourself a very important question: 'Am I chasing them because they are a danger to the public or are they a danger to the public because I'm chasing them?'"

Some of the considerations for officers are road conditions, time of day and direction the vehicle is headed.

Boan said as long as he is sheriff, they will allow their officers to chase if it is safe.

Boan said the person inside the second vehicle sitting at Dollar General is cooperating with law enforcement through this investigation.

"All I can say right now is that it's still under investigation. There is stuff we're looking into that was there," Boan said. "I don't want to go too far into it because it's some of the things...I just want to make sure we've got our facts straight before we go any further. But one of the things we did not find weapons, firearms, we did not find any burglary tools, we did not find drugs, we did not find the main stuff that you are thinking about. It's just a little bit more complex."

Houser's father is a former deputy with the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office.

"In law enforcement, we're all a family," Boan said. "He's a brother to me, and can't imagine what he's going through."

The deputy who made contact with the vehicle has been provided with counseling, and the accident is still under investigation by a South Carolina Highway Patrol special team, according to Boan.

After reviewing dash cam footage, Boan said he stands with his deputy's decision.

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - Some residents in Kershaw County tell WIS they’re “appalled” and “disrespected” by the actions of an elected official.

County Councilman Russell Brazell is on blast for listening to loud music while a former first responder addressed Emergency Medical System (EMS) issues during last week’s Kershaw County Council meeting.

On March 14, exactly 17 people signed up to voice their opinions on a $10 million recreation center slated for Woodward Park. As Chairwoman Katie Guinn announced the public comment portion of the meeting, Brazell put a white earbud in his right ear.

Brazell is an avid supporter of the Woodward Park project.

“I was not watching him, so I don’t know when he started using the earbuds or when he started playing music, but when the music got loud enough to interrupt the meeting, that’s when I noticed,” said Chairwoman Guinn.

When the 12th speaker in line was called to the podium, Brazell plugged both ears with matching headphones. The speaker was Matthew Hutchison of Cassatt, a staunch opponent of the Woodward Park project.

“I’m in a unique position to understand some of the issues that we’re facing in Kershaw County with our first responders,” said Hutchison to WIS.

Rather than a recreation park, Hutchison believes $10 million should go towards five preexisting EMS stations throughout the county. This, as well as the installation of two additional stations in the area.

Hutchison pointed out severe infrastructure issues across KC EMS Station No. 1 following our interview in Camden on Friday.

He was prepared to address his opinions without interruption during last week’s Public Comment. Instead, Chairwoman Guinn paused Hutchison while trying to get Brazell’s attention.

“Mr. Brazell, can I have your attention, please, or are you listening to something else,” said Hutchison at the podium after Guinn called for Brazell’s participation twice.

After calling on Brazell a total of three times, Guinn ordered Councilman Sammie Tucker to tap his shoulder.

“The word that came to mind was disrespectful. I felt disrespected as a man, I felt disrespected as a citizen of this county, and everybody in the room, I’m sure, felt the same way. Even the other council members, who are probably embarrassed by that behavior,” continued Hutchison to WIS.

After a pleasant phone call with Brazell, he emailed this statement to WIS which has not been altered:

“First of all, I would like to say I appreciate the opportunity to speak to you regarding this. From time to time humans make mistakes. I’m one of those humans. Without forgiveness and Grace from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we would never be able to embrace moments like this. My intention with my earbud use was to assist in hearing in a crowded room. The older I get the harder it is to hear. Unfortunately, I later chose to use them to tune out a couple of individuals that consistently bring negativity to our community. I have seen negative statements about our sheriff’s child posted online as well as my own children. You know it’s ok to poke fun at a public official but I find it disgusting to make derogatory comments about children. Ultimately I made a mistake and I own that mistake. Ignoring an individual is not the answer. I apologize to the citizens of Kershaw County that I represent for doing a poor job that Tuesday night. I will do better and this county deserves the best of me.”

Brazell is not Hutchison’s district representative. The next KC council meeting is on March 28.

You can watch Hutchison’s full speech before the Kershaw County council from minutes 1:18:53 to 1:25:01 by clicking here. He’s interrupted at minute 1:23:18.

Woman’s body found inside donation bin after being there for months, SC sheriff says

An investigation is underway after a body was found inside a clothing donation bin, and authorities believe it had been there for months, the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office said Monday night.The body is believed to be that of an adult female “based on the clothing located on the body,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release....

An investigation is underway after a body was found inside a clothing donation bin, and authorities believe it had been there for months, the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office said Monday night.

The body is believed to be that of an adult female “based on the clothing located on the body,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

The woman has not been identified, but the sheriff’s office said an autopsy scheduled for Wednesday might provide her name and additional information. That includes a cause of death, a date of death, and the original location of the death, according to the release.

The sheriff’s office warned the public that finding answers to these questions “will not be a fast process.”

The body was discovered Dec. 31 in a donation bin located near Camden West Inn at 850 U.S. 1 South in Lugoff, the sheriff’s office said. That’s about 3 miles from Lugoff-Elgin High School in an area densely packed with retail businesses, car dealerships, and restaurants.

Following the discovery, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division was called to process the bin and “properly recover the body,” according to the release.

“Unfortunately, it appears the body has possibly been there for months,” Sheriff Lee Boan told the Camden Chronicle-Independent. “It was badly decomposed and mostly skeletal.”

The donation bin was removed after the body was recovered, the sheriff’s office said. In addition to the body, the bin contained a number of items that appeared to be years old, Boan said, including VHS tapes. It appeared the bin had not been checked or emptied in some time, the Chronicle-Independent reported.

In addition to the sheriff’s office and SLED, the Kershaw County Coroner’s Office is assisting with the investigation.

“We will know more facts as the investigation moves forward. It is very early in the investigation,” Boan said in the release. “We are NOT ruling out anything at this time.”

Several people responding to the sheriff’s office post on Facebook about the discovery said it could be a woman who was reported missing in June, and had not been seen by her family since March 2022. In June, the sheriff’s office in a Facebook post said Leslie Lemoine was missing.

In a Facebook post of her own, a woman identifying herself as Lemoine’s daughter said: “We do believe this could be my mother. The detective called me immediately and informed of the possibility. ... Many of the things they are telling me about what they found on the body sound like her but I can not be for sure. Please just send our family prayers.”

This is a developing story, check back for updates.

The Department would like to add eight positions to keep up with the growth in the community

KERSHAW COUNTY, S.C. — You might see more deputies on the road in Kershaw County next year.

The Kershaw County Sheriff's Office is eyeing an expansion of its department in the 2023-2024 budget request to Kershaw County Council.

"We don't want to get to the point where we're behind, and now we're kinda stretched, stretched pretty thin now," Sheriff Lee Boan said. "So, now would be the time to grow to keep up with what we're dealing with and not get behind."

It was a call to action as Sheriff Boan presented to the council his request for the next budget cycle in which he wants to welcome eight more people to the department.

He's requesting four deputies, a drug investigator, a violent crimes investigator, an attorney, and a grant writer, bringing the department to a total of 100 people.

"This year we're hoping to play catch-up and get more personnel with the sheriff's office," he said.

The request, he said, is to keep up with growth.

"It's pretty clear our population is coming from the Columbia area. Over in Elgin we're seeing a lot more residents, and new developments building there," he said. "It's almost daily we see a new neighborhood pop in, and with that comes housing, and more of a need."

The sheriff also explained the reasons for his specific personnel hiring requests.

"We want four extra deputies, one per shift, to kind of expand the shift out somewhere," he said. "We asked for one extra drug investigator - we still are having a lot of overdose deaths."

He said that at one time these deaths went down but have since increased again.

"I haven't seen our final numbers but it wouldn't surprise me if we broke another record for most overdose deaths in 2022," Boan said. "So, we're asking for another drug investigator."

The estimated cost to fund eight new personnel and six vehicles in the first year, if all grants they apply for are approved, will come out to approximately $526,000.

If no grants are approved, it will come to around $656,000 a year for just the salary and not including vehicles or equipment.

The Kershaw County Council will continue its budget discussions Monday, March 27th at 1 p.m. The meeting is open to the public.

CAMDEN, S.C. (WIS) - Kershaw County Council is continuing the discussion of a multi-million-dollar recreation park after its second monthly meeting on Tuesday.

The Woodward Park project has been met with controversy on social media after the idea was proposed to the county council on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

If picked up, the county will begin construction on a 100+ acre, $10 million recreation center on the grounds of Woodward Park, off Chestnut Ferry Road in Camden.

The Health Service District of Kershaw County agreed to provide $2 million of their own assets, on top of $3 million from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), as long as Kershaw County agreed to match the proposal with an additional $5 million.

The county was given 90 days to decide on the proposal after a public presentation by the Health District’s Board Chairman, Derial Ogburn.

Those advocating the project told WIS it would be paid for with its travel ball add-on. A travel ball add-on is when traveling sports teams pay-to-play and complete on qualifying fields.

Supporters of the project have added that tourism brought by the sports teams would boost the local economy.

“We’re going to use [travel ball] to our advantage, to help pay for a facility that we’re going to build. The county portion that they have to provide will be offset by tourism that is brought into our community through the travel ball,” said Shane Kirkley, a founding member of Kershaw Families Advocating for Recreational Excellence (KARE).

Those who oppose the project, such as some Kershaw County council members, cite a lack of evidence that travel ball will pay for itself.

“I’ve seen no data. I’ve seen no information backing up their project. All I’ve heard is, ‘we’ll match this and will match that…’ But I’m just not for Woodward Park, it’s just not top of the priority for me right now,” said councilman Jimmy Jones.

Jones told WIS he is not opposed to the recreation center. He confirmed that Kershaw County is actively installing two separate recreation facilities at Larry Doby Complex and Kershaw County West.

The Larry Doby Complex is 1.5 miles from Woodward Park.

“I don’t want people getting hung up on travel ball. Yes… they’re big industries. We have the opportunity here in Kershaw County to build something and let those people come in so our current kids… can have something nice to play on,” concluded Kirkley.

Eleven people signed up to speak on the Woodward Park project during the county council’s public forum on Tuesday.

“I’m not fooled by any of this idiocracy anymore,” said Jeff Mattox, one of the residents who spoke. “The travel baseball people have formed their little KARE group in order to promote this. Because they don’t want to take the personal responsibility of building the park themselves. They wish to rob all of us, to pay for their child’s ‘field of dreams’ that they might get to be a baseball star.”
