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 Ladson:
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.

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — It's that time of year again! The annual Coastal Carolina Fair kicks off this week in Ladson with some brand new rides and foods.

The fair opens this Thursday and Friday from 3 to 9 p.m.

This year's fair will run from Thursday, Oct. 27 to Sunday, Nov. 6.

RIDES

There will be around 65 rides in total this year, including some new ones.

Thrill seekers will be excited to see the largest rollercoaster AND Ferris wheel they've had yet. The Ferris wheel is over 100-ft tall.

“We’ve got a brand-new carnival. It’s a big deal for us. We had a very long relationship with the last one, and this one had some opportunities to bring some new coasters, rollercoasters in. Some great rides, and we just couldn’t pass it up,” said Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson, Jay Wallace.

FOOD

A wide variety of tasty treats are on the menus: barbeque sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, funnel cakes, deep fried brownies- and the list goes on and gets more creative.

Some other options will include funnel cakes, elephant ears, and award-winning jalapeno corndogs.

Be sure to look out for the Oreo-encrusted turkey leg!

ENTERTAINMENT

In addition to rides and food, fairgoers will find lots of other entertainment.

TICKETS

Coastal Carolina Fair officials suspended online ticket sales until further notice after fraudulent activity was detected Wednesday.

Tickets can be purchased at Circle K stores or at the fair gates for the time being.

Credit and cash are accepted at the gate ticket booths, but only credit is accepted at the kiosks located at each entry gate.

Fair officials said do not buy tickets from people that approach you or posted online.

Check the fair's calendar for special discount days for seniors and more.

TICKET PRICES THROUGH OCTOBER 26TH:

TICKET PRICES BEGINNING OCTOBER 27TH:

SAFETY

The use of metal detectors and a clear plastic bag policy will continue for this season, and that there will be plenty of security. Some of it will be around the clock during the fair’s two-week run.

“The No. 1 rule we have around here that tells us if we’ve had a good fair is if we’ve had a safe fair," said Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson Jay Wallace.

All rides are inspected by multiple agencies, Grimm said.

LADSON — The Coastal Carolina Fair is back this year at Ladson Exchange Park.

The annual event returns for 11 days of rides, concessions, exhibitions, games and live entertainment from Oct. 27 to Nov. 6.

The fair is a fundraiser by the Exchange Club of Charleston, a chapter of a nationwide organization dedicated to volunteering and serving the community. Established as a fundraiser in 1957, the Coastal Carolina Fair has raised more than $11 million, with the money going directly back to nonprofits in the Lowcountry. The Coastal Carolina Fair is the largest volunteer fair in the United States, according to Donnie Pitts, the new fair president.

There will be at least 10 new rides courtesy of Reithoffer Shows that will be making a debut on the fairgrounds. Those include “The Beast,” which will swing and loop people 360 degrees, and the 126-foot Dutch wheel, the tallest wheel to be at Ladson Exchange Park. Pitts said he thinks the community will be excited about the new rides.

There will also be four days of rodeo events, which include bull riding, bronco riding and barrel racing, said Gary Leonard, the fair’s chair of media and press relations. He said participants can earn points at these rodeo events to qualify for the national rodeo competitions in Las Vegas.

Included at the fair are rides such as the Merry-Go-Round and Tea Cups; food such as tacos, chicken tenders and fries; live music and entertainment featuring Neal McCoy, ERNEST and J. Howell; and competitions, including the fiddle contest and chili cook-off.

Pitts said he anticipates the fair getting an even larger crowd than last year because of growth in the tri-county area.

“We’re growing leaps and bounds every day. A lot of people didn’t even know we had a fair last year because they weren’t here,” Pitts said. “We can tap into that community of newcomers, get them to come out to a family-oriented fair.”

While the fair doesn’t often bring in new food vendors, one new fair treat Pitts and Leonard say to look out for is a cookie-dipped turkey leg.

Both Pitts and Leonard emphasized the importance of safety. The clear bag policy established last year, as well as state-of-the-art metal detectors and extra security, still stand. No weapons are allowed on the fairgrounds, per usual. They said they noticed all three of these had positive effects on the fair experience.

“We’re about being safe, and trying to provide that family-friendly type safe atmosphere, so if I can get that, then I’m thinking (the fair would be) a success,” Pitts said.

In 2021, there were 177,297 attendees at the fair. Leonard attributed a lower attendance to a couple of days being rained out.

The fair still raised over $324,000 and the money was distributed among 63 nonprofits, including Dorchester Habitat for Humanity, Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina and the Larry and Rebecca Collet Foundation.

The fair has switched partners, from Amusements of America — they were partners for over 60 years — to Reithoffer Shows due to the end of the contract cycle.

There are several special deal ticket days. Examples include free admission for military and first responders on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4, and a discounted Seniors Day on Nov. 2.

Also on Nov. 2, the fair is granting free admission with a front page of The Post and Courier from Oct. 30.

A schedule is available at coastalcarolinafair.org/events.

Tickets to the Coastal Carolina Fair can be purchased at the gate. Discounts will be available in advance online at coastalcarolinafair.org/tickets and at local Circle K stores.

The Coastal Carolina Fair returns on Thursday

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — “Two days ago, this was an open, empty fairgrounds.

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — “Two days ago, this was an open, empty fairgrounds. And by tonight or tomorrow, it’s going to be an amusement park just like Disneyland,” says fair vendor Bill Prowant of Prowant Specialty Company from Ohio.

Prowant is marveling at the quick pace of setting up this year’s Coastal Carolina Fair at the Exchange Park in Ladson.

It’s something Prowant is used to seeing first-hand and is well aware of the skill behind it all.

“It’s a labor of love,” remarks Prowant.

Fellow long-time vendor, Teri Cox of Concessions by Cox from Georgia, is counting down the hours until Thursday afternoon’s grand opening.

“We’re looking at 48 hours. You’ll see a lot of activity today. Everything will be coming beautiful and coming to life tomorrow,” says Cox.

Both Cox and Prowant are in the fair food business.

A wide variety of tasty treats are on their menus: barbeque sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, funnel cakes, deep fried brownies- and the list goes on and gets more creative.

While the fun food is a constant, a longtime part of the fair has changed.

Amusements of America will not be the company putting together this year’s Midway- a task they’ve been behind for around 60 years.

Reithoffer Shows has brought in its own fleet of rides.

According to an article by Carnival Warehouse, there will be around 65 rides in total.

“We’ve got a brand-new carnival. It’s a big deal for us. We had a very long relationship with the last one, and this one had some opportunities to bring some new coasters, rollercoasters in. Some great rides, and we just couldn’t pass it up,” says the Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson, Jay Wallace.

Wallace also highlights as part of the fair’s experience: safety.

Wallace says the use of metal detectors and a clear plastic bag policy will continue for this season, and that there will be plenty of security. Some of it will be around the clock during the fair’s two-week run.

According to Wallace, “The No. 1 rule we have around here that tells us if we’ve had a good fair is if we’ve had a safe fair.”

According to their website, The Exchange Club of Charleston has operated the fair since 1957. Multiple Lowcountry charities have benefited from the fair throughout the years.

The annual Coastal Carolina fair kicks off this week in Ladson and will be open on Thursday and Friday from 3 to 9 p.m.

This year's fair will run from Thursday, October 27 to Sunday, November 6.

Additionally, there will be performances from Neal McCoy, J. Howell, Drake Milligan, and the Yonder Mountain String Band at the Lakefront Stage.

For foodies, some of the options will include funnel cakes, elephant ears, and award-winning jalapeno corndogs.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here.

Editor's note: Online ticket sales were suspended until further notice Wednesday due to fraudulent activity. Tickets can be purchased at the fair gates or at local Circle Ks.

t had been almost two months since Howie Roseman made a trade, so you knew something had to give.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Eagles shipped a fourth-round pick to the Bears for 32-year-old pass rusher Robert Quinn.

He becomes the first first-round pick the Eagles have traded for since they acquired Sam Bradford in the spring of 2015. Bradford and Quinn were teammates with the Rams from 2011 through 2014.

Here are five things you need to know about Quinn:

1. When he was 17 years old, Quinn collapsed twice at the family home in Ladson, S.C., and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors discovered a brain tumor the size of a dime. The tumor was preventing fluid from reaching his brain, causing headaches and eventually causing him to collapse. Quinn was told he’d never play sports again. Doctors drilled two holes to drain the fluid, but the tumor remains to this day. Quinn said in an interview with CBS Sports he’s tested twice a year but doesn’t think about the tumor unless he’s asked about it. “I've been living with it for so long, I don't think twice about it until they tell me I need to go get a checkup,” he told Pete Prisco of CBS Sports. “It's part of me.”

2. After recording 11 sacks as a sophomore at North Carolina in 2009, Quinn and several teammates were ruled ineligible for the 2010 season just before the opener after the NCAA ruled that he received $5,642 worth of improper benefits – jewelry and travel expenses - from an agent and lied to investigators. Quinn later said he didn’t realize the person who gave him the gifts was an agent and said school officials had only advised players not to accept gifts from agents. Despite sitting out the 2010 season, Quinn was the 14th pick in the draft. His rookie year with the Rams, his head coach was former Eagles defensive coordinator Jeff Fisher, and his rookie defensive coordinator was Ken Flajole, who was Doug Pederson's linebackers coach from 2016 through 2020. Also on that 2011 Rams defense were former Eagles Quintin Mikell, Rod Hood and Al Harris. Rodney McLeod joined the Rams the next year.

3. Quinn ranks 35th in NFL history with 102.0 sacks. He’s tied with Aaron Donald for sixth-most among active players, behind Von Miller [121.5], Cameron Jordan [111.5], Chandler Jones [108.0], Justin Houston [106.0] and J.J. Watt [104.5]. He’s had two 18-sack seasons – 19 for the Rams in 2013 and 18.5 with the Bears last year. He’s one of only seven players in NFL history with multiple 18-sack seasons. The others are Reggie White (3), J.J. Watt (2), DeMarcus Ware (2), Michael Strahan (2) and Mark Gastineau (2). His 18.5 sacks last year make him the third-oldest player in history with 18 or more sacks. Strahan had 18.5 in 2003 at 32, and Robert Mathis had 19.5 with the Colts in 2013.

4. Quinn will be the fourth player with at least 100 career sacks to wear an Eagles uniform. Reggie White recorded the first 124 of his 198 career sacks with the Eagles, adding 68.5 with the Packers and 5.5 with the Panthers. Hall of Famer Richard Dent had 133.0 when he signed with the Eagles in 1997. He added his last 4.5 career sacks as an Eagle, finishing with 137.5, still 10th-most in history. Greg Townsend had 107.5 when he joined the Eagles in 1994 and added two more, finishing his career with 109.5. Two other members of the 100-sack club left the Eagles before recording their 100th sack. William Fuller – like Quinn a North Carolina product - had 94.5 when he played his last game as an Eagle at the end of 1996. He added six more with the Chargers and finished with 100.5. Clyde Simmons finished with 121.5 but recorded 45.5 of them after leaving the Eagles.

5. Quinn has faced the Eagles four times and recorded three sacks. The Eagles held him without a sack in a 34-28 win over the Rams at the Linc in 2014, but he sacked Carson Wentz in the second quarter of the Eagles’ 43-35 win at L.A. Coliseum – the game where Wentz suffered a season-ending knee injury – and in his one year with the Cowboys he sacked Wentz once in each game. Quinn has the fifth-most career sacks against Wentz, behind only Ryan Kerrigan (7), Olivier Vernon (6), Calais Campbell (4) and Tyrone Crawford (3.5).

A new frozen custard and burger restaurant soon will welcome customers in Ladson, and a home decor store is opening in a new shopping center in North Charleston.

Culver’s plans to open at 10 a.m. Aug. 29 at 3848 Ladson Road next to Gilligan’s Seafood Restaurant, according to Marilyn Knox, the franchise owner who opened the first Charleston-area Culver’s in 2019 on U.S. Highway 17A in Berkeley County.

The location also includes a drive-thru and patio, where live music will be available on opening evening and possibly once a week, Knox said. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m. opening day.

Culver’s specializes in its signature ButterBurgers and frozen custard. It also offers other meat sandwiches along with sides and salads.

The planned Culver’s is a few miles north of competitor Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, which opened last fall at 4540 Ladson Road near Stars and Strikes bowling and arcade center on the edge of Summerville.

Come on in

Another new retailer is ready to open its doors in a North Charleston retail center.

HomeGoods plans to host a grand opening Aug. 18, starting at 8 a.m., in the new Cedar Grove Shopping Center at 8821 Dorchester Road.

The 22,000-square-foot home decor shop is the latest merchant to join the new retail center. Already open are Ross Dress for Less, discount shop Five Below and cosmetics purveyor Ulta.

A 16,000-square-foot PetSmart pet supply shop is expected to open in September, and other shops are on the way to a newly constructed outparcel building closer to Dorchester Road.

Shopping center plans call for three more retail structures on the south side where land is currently being cleared next to Riverbluff Parkway in front of Cedar Grove Apartments.

What’s cooking?

A new restaurant is ready to welcome customers at the site of a recently closed dining spot in Mount Pleasant.

Pasture & Grain will officially open at 11 a.m. Aug. 19 at 1701 Shoremeade Road in Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17.

It’s in the same retail center where national sporting goods retailer REI is upfitting the former Publix GreenWise Market grocery store space for an opening in the fall.

The restaurant is taking over the space vacated in May by Blaze Pizza, which closed after three years.

Pasture & Grain owner and operator Ira Hill said the 2,800-square-foot venue will serve American fare priced from $8 to $18.

Meats, vegetables, grains, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and toast with spreads are on the menu. Sous chef is Brandon Brown. The new restaurant will be open until 9 p.m. daily.

On the way

A Florida-based grocery chain with several stores in the Charleston area has rolled out curbside prescription pickup in four states. Publix Pharmacy started offering the service Aug. 10 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Virginia. South Carolina and North Carolina locations will be added in the future as the company expands the program throughout its entire operations in the Southeast.

Tan lines

A new tanning salon has opened in Mount Pleasant.

City Tan can be found at 1167 Basketweave Drive in the Cirque Salon Studios off U.S. Highway 17 near Six Mile Road. The owner is Liz Bailey, who also owns Bikini Bronze Charleston at 10 Exchange St. on the peninsula.

Ready to Rumble

A group boxing workout studio plans to make its South Carolina debut with three new sites.

Rumble Boxing plans to open in Charleston and Hilton Head Island. Locations have not been announced.

Rumble President Shaun Grove said boxing workouts are geared to all fitness levels and abilities and the company plans to continue its expansion across the nation.

The boxing-inspired studio delivers 45-minute, 10-round strength and conditioning group workouts crafted around teardrop-style aqua boxing bags and high-intensity strength-training circuits. Rumble is designed to build strength and relieve stress.

The New York City-based company has 25 franchise locations open across the U.S. Others are in development.
