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 Lugoff:
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.

Three new developments are under construction which is expected to provide 280 units to the area

LUGOFF, S.C. — As more people call Kershaw County home, more apartments and homes are popping up also.

According to the United States Census Bureau, from April 1st, 2020 to July 1st, 2021, over 700 people moved to the area,

Kershaw County Administrator Danny Templar says, "It seems like a land that can be developed is being developed."

Most of that land the county is the western half of the county. "Growth tends to be in the West Wateree side of Lugoff and primarily Elgin," he says. "If you look at the census data maps and heat maps if you will from 2010 it was really hot you could see the growth and that trend has certainly continued, that trend has continued into 2020."

Residents like Patsy Jackson live near all of the construction. She says she's curious about what's happening, "It started out as homes, then it started turning into townhouses, and I'm not really sure some apartment buildings, and so forth I'm really not really sure what all it is."

The development includes three new subdivisions that will welcome a total of 280 units. "There are some businesses coming in on the main strip but it's more single-family homes," Templar says. "Clearly there is a demand, it's supply and demand, as you can see these homes are built, they're not even finished and there is a sold sticker in the window so that it's a true indicator for the market is and the demand."

Restaurants like Lugoff House of Pizza say this will be good for their dining room too. "We do see more people coming this way here because I think they are building new apartments over here, we're seeing new customers coming this way, of course, it's good," says Hossam Naama, the manager of Lugoff Pizza.

As for how much more growth the area can handle Templar says, "Growth is good, we're not anti-growth, we certainly welcome growth and members in the community, but we have to also be mindful of this is a mostly rural county so we don't quite have the infrastructure in terms of roads and signal you might have in a larger community."

Dominion Energy’s Commitment to Diversity, Sustainability Connects With New Generation of Interns in South Carolina

CAYCE, S.C. (July 28, 2022) – As Dominion Energy transforms into the leading clean energy company in the nation, a new generation of interns is attracted to the company’s increasingly diverse workforce, culture of excellence and commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.

Madison Locklear, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering at The Citadel in Charleston, is one example. Locklear works in Dominion Energy’s North Charleston office where she is learning about the company’s efforts to build infrastructure and increase renewable energy resources for future zero-emissions transportation. Her day-to-day projects include assistance with site designs for electric vehicle charging stations for the area’s largest public transit system. She has also worked with the company’s municipal lighting and customer engineering teams on assignments in the field.

“I’m big into sustainability, and I know the company is working towards that,” said Locklear, who is from Lugoff, South Carolina. “I thought the internship aligned with my interests. Also, I enjoy meeting people from different departments and seeing how everything is interconnected.”

Just as Locklear has valued the real-life experience through her internship, so has Jahavheed George. The St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, native received a full academic scholarship to Benedict College, a historically Black college or university in Columbia. A senior studying accounting, George works in Dominion Energy’s finance department in Cayce on nuclear fleet integration projects.

“I notice here at Dominion Energy, people are open and willing to help you and teach you anything,” George said.” I love that attitude. Here, you’re valued, and it’s more of a team and family dynamic. It creates an environment that allows me to grow both professionally and personally.”

Dominion Energy South Carolina president Keller Kissam spoke with this year’s interns to welcome them to Dominion Energy.

“Our people are our greatest asset, so I get excited when I get to talk to a group of talented interns who are genuinely interested in joining our Dominion Energy family,” Kissam said. “Our internship program is a smart investment in the future of our diverse workforce and the continued vitality of the beautiful Palmetto State that I’m proud to call home.”

Threat against Kershaw County school traced to Hawaii

KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WACH) — New information on a fake threat against Lugoff-Elgin High School in Kershaw County. The threat on social media came from an account under the name of a student who is in special education classes at the high school. But he was the one who reached out to deputies, calling to tell them he didn’t make the threat.

“Somebody he was talking to in Hawaii already told him they were going to use his name to create a fake account and start making threats toward Lugoff-Elgin High School,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Lee Boan.

Officers showed up to the student’s home and confirmed there were no weapons or devices he could’ve used to make the threat.

“We get a threat like this on a school, we’re coming to your house. You better believe it,” said Boan. “From there we started tracking the account and the account did come back to Hawaii”.

They say the student is in chat groups online and his name has been used three or four times in the past to make similar threats.

“We feel that’s their way of getting even with him because they don’t like something he’s doing. They're basically cyber-bullying him and using us as a tool to do that,” said Boan.

So, they let parents in the district know quickly that there was no need to panic.

“A 15-year-old over 4500 miles away is probably not a risk to the school,” said Boan.

“Very frustrating because it puts everyone on edge and we’re doing everything we can to make sure our students are safe, our staff is safe and that we can educate our students to the best of our ability,” said Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Corey Wright.

So, classes went on as scheduled.

“I think sometimes our kids are more resilient than we are as adults and they dealt with this in the best way I think they could in carrying out a normal day as much as they could,” said Wright.

Officials want to remind parents to keep an eye on their child’s social media use. They also want to urge teens to be cautious before they post or interact with someone they don’t know.

Sapakoff: Monte Lee ‘not bitter’ about Clemson, perfect Gamecocks fit

COLUMBIA — It’s official with Monte Lee appearing publicly in garnet clothing, thus completing the Brad Scott trade.

On the football side of the Gamecocks-Tigers swap, Brad Scott was fired as South Carolina head coach after the 1998 season and soon signed on to Tommy Bowden’s Clemson staff as an assistant coach. He was carried off the Williams-Brice Stadium field (apparently at Bowden’s suggestion) in orange glory following Clemson’s 31-21 victory in 1999.

It really wasn’t that weird. Scott was close to the Bowden family from his days as Bobby Bowden’s national championship-winning offensive coordinator at Florida State.

The baseball side of rivalry crossover — with Lee fired as Clemson head coach on May 31 and hired as Mark Kingston’s South Carolina associate head coach and recruiting coordinator on Aug. 19 — is even more understandable.

Lee, before head coaching gigs at College of Charleston and Clemson, was a Gamecocks assistant coach who helped Ray Tanner reach six straight NCAA Tournaments.

He recruited Jackie Bradley Jr., Christian Walker and other key members of the 2010 and 2011 College World Series winners.

Lee, 45, can’t stop smiling.

“It’s just a great feeling to come into this ballpark every day knowing what I know about the tradition and the history of this program and being a part of it again,” Lee said during his Aug. 22 introductory press conference (conducted on Zoom because Kingston tested positive for COVID-19 on Aug. 21).

He also shined gratitude on Clemson.

“I’m not bitter about anything,” Lee said. “I’m blessed to be at the University at South Carolina just as I was blessed to be the head coach at Clemson. I was blessed to be the head coach at the College of Charleston. Good Lord, in my coaching career I’ve coached at three great schools and had great experiences at all of them.”

Lee kept saying all the right things Monday, most notably that a flip from Clemson to South Carolina with all the social media rivalry fixins is “not about me.”

It’s the perfect hire: Lee’s a well-rounded leader with 518 wins as a head coach whose in-state recruiting skills match up with what has been a Kingston weakness.

Whether or not that saves Kingston’s job, an intriguing 2023 baseball season will tell.

Lee talked Monday about his friendship with Kingston. Coming to South Carolina was a “no-brainer,” he said, when Kingston reached out after Chad Caillet left the program for family reasons.

He also mentioned “the beauty of the rivalry” in repeating Tanner’s Carolina-Clemson description from long ago.

“There is no Yankees and Red Sox in the state of South Carolina,” Lee said. “We are the Yankees and the Red Sox.”

Palmetto State versions of the Rays and Blue Jays, however, have messed with the Tigers and Gamecocks in recent seasons.

Coastal Carolina is the state’s most recent national champion.

The NCAA’s 2022 ratings percentage index going into the NCAA Tournament had Coastal Carolina (No. 30), Wofford (No. 35) and College of Charleston (No. 69) rated ahead of South Carolina (No. 72).

Lee’s Tigers were No. 34 and left out of the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row, which is why he was ousted.

To pass the time this summer, Lee walked the family dog three times a day in his Clemson neighborhood. If the dog gets a little less exercise, it’s because Lee is trying to help the Gamecocks get to Omaha.

Lee knows a lot about what it takes to get to a College World Series. Along with Major League standouts Walker and Bradley Jr., he also played a big role in recruiting national champions Tyler Webb, Colby Holmes, Nolan Belcher and Brady Thomas.

College of Charleston got oh, so close. But the Cougars lost a pair of 1-0 games in a 2014 Super Regional at Texas Tech.

How close is this South Carolina roster to College World Series contention?

“Yet to be determined,” Lee said.

Priorities include a new implementation of fundamentals and, Lee said, finding the right mix of buffalo (power hitters) and deer (faster players) for lineups capable of SEC success.

A new coach must carefully mesh with players.

“They don’t know how much I know until they know how much I care,” Lee said.

It’s a great hire for the Gamecocks.

A recruiting coordinator from South Carolina (Lugoff), who played college baseball in the state (College of Charleston) and worked for Ray Tanner.

A guy who has been recruiting all over the state for more than two decades.

But this is temporary. Monte Lee is going to be a head coach again, probably somewhere in South Carolina. Probably sooner than later, whether he gets carried off the field after a series victory over Clemson or not.

LUGOFF, S.C. —

South Carolina has now had 10 earthquakes, as of noon Wednesday, near the Columbia area in just as many days.

Steven Jaume, an Associate Professor of Geology at the College of Charleston, said, "we are looking into this, it is a bit unusual."

However, the professor, who specializes in earthquakes, said, "One thing to keep in mind is South Carolina is earthquake country."

The ninth and 10th earthquakes in about two weeks in South Carolina were reported Wednesday morning.

The quakes have occurred near the Lugoff and Elgin areas since Dec. 27, according to South Carolina Emergency Management Division.

This is an area near a regional fault system.

"It’s actually called the Eastern Piedmont Fault system; it actually goes through Alabama up into Virginia," Jaume said, "There are faults, and these are usually very old faults and they formed when the Appalachians were being formed, so the question is are they being reactivated are they kind of starting back up again in that particular area and that’s what we are investigating."

The earthquakes on Jan. 5 come after another one on Monday, Jan. 3. The week before there were seven earthquakes. All range from 1.5 to 3.3 in magnitude.

"When we have a sequence of earthquakes that kind of keeps going we call it a swarm but usually a swarm doesn’t have one earthquake bigger than the others. So we have the 3.3 which was clearly the start, so these are more of a long-lived aftershocks right now," said Jaume.

The associate professor, who got his Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from Columbia University, said these quakes aren't overly concerning because they are smaller in size.

"If they don’t get any bigger, they are more of an annoyance than a concern," Jaume added, as he talked about people waking up because they felt the earthquakes early in the morning.

He said even with recent data scientists aren't able to predict when a quake will happen next.

"I am envious of meteorologists because they can see the storms coming. We can’t see earthquakes coming there is nothing we can record that tells us something bigger is coming."
