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 Matthews:
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.

Matthews residents pack into town hall to discuss divisive 'Sante Matthews' project

The "Sante Matthews" project would include 14 single-family homes, 120 town houses and over 300 apartments.

The "Sante Matthews" project would include 14 single-family homes, 120 town houses and over 300 apartments. Some neighbors say the project is "out of place."

MATTHEWS, N.C. — Matthews leaders held a town hall Monday evening to allow residents to speak on a large proposed development that some neighbors are trying to stop before it gets started.

The project, which would be built on Idlewild Road, would include new town homes, apartments, single-family homes and commercial space off Stallings Road. Neighbors first rallied against plans for a town house and single-family community back in 2010.

Residents that are against "Sante Matthews" packed into the town hall Monday night and said they want developments in the area to be single-family houses only.

They say the development is out of place and doesn't benefit the neighborhood.

"We all moved here to be in suburbs," one neighbor told town commissioners Monday night. "We would like to keep it the suburbs."

Pappas Properties is the developer behind the proposed $160 million project. Pappas hopes to get the town council's approval to rezone and develop the land for the "Sante Matthews" project. The plan, which sprawls across 80 acres, includes 14 single-family homes, 120 town houses and 187 units for 55-plus living. It also includes 341 multi-family units for rent.

The community will also have a park, grocery store, offices and retail space.

Founder Peter Pappas was set to give a presentation on the plans at the town council meeting but delayed it partly due to new roadwork plans. However, he still attended the meeting.

It’s a packed house at Matthews Town Hall tonight. Most of the residents here were expecting to learn more about the Sante Matthews development on Idlewild Rd. Pappas Properties isn’t coming anymore but I’m told some still plan to speak out against the proposed project. @wcnc pic.twitter.com/Y7Jy7CWSY2

— Julia Kauffman (@JuliaKauffmanTV) November 15, 2022

"The main reason is the change by NCDOT to put the roundabout back at the relocated Stallings Road and Hooks Road," Pappas told WCNC Charlotte's Julia Kauffman. "So, that’s going to require us to relook at our plans.”

Pappas added that he is meeting with the surrounding neighborhood leaders and wanted to get their input before presenting.

Residents that are organizing against the development said their petition has more than 300 signatures. The petition calls on Matthews leaders to deny the proposal when it's time to vote.

Resident David Gaertner said he worries the development could cause even more traffic issues, citing a study that found 141 crashes on Idlewild Road near the proposed community from 2016-2020.

Pappas is set to share the updated plans for "Sante Matthews" at the Dec. 12 town council meeting. Public comment will be taken at that hearing from people that did not speak at the Nov. 14 meeting.

Matthews voters deciding whether to pay for $35 million in town projects

The two bond referendums on Matthews voters' ballots aim to make improvements to roads and parks by upping property taxes.

MATTHEWS, N.C. — Matthews taxpayers could be footing the bill for $35 million in town projects and the decision is in the hands of voters this election.

Matthews residents will vote on whether to approve two bond referendums that aim to fund improvements to Matthews’ parks, downtown area, and roads.

Widening sidewalks, adding more downtown parking, and massive park renovations are a few priorities for the bonds. The transportation bond asks to borrow $21 million and the parks bond would borrow $14 million.

Mayor Pro Tem Ken McCool told WCNC Charlotte the town’s yearly budget can’t cover the costs of these projects – that’s why they’re asking for help from the community.

"We want to make sure we do it the more responsible way where it's minimal tax increase on folks, when it's doing stuff that's necessary to keep the town moving forward,” McCool said.

McCool is in favor of the bonds, as is Mayor John Higdon and several town commissioners. Two town commissioners, Gina Hoover and Mark Tofano oppose them because they said they don't want to put the town in debt.

Hoover and Tofano are worried the bonds are being unfairly promoted by their colleagues due to promotional materials sporting the town's logo.

"It’s like the town is saying, 'vote yes' for these bonds because that logo was paid for by taxpayer funds," Hoover told WCNC Charlotte.

The ‘Moving Matthews forward’ logo was created for the town to distribute information about the bonds. It’s also on ‘vote yes’ magnets that Mayor Higdon paid for and distributed.

Higdon said the logo is public domain and can be downloaded by anyone.

"By state statute, the town is not allowed to advocate one way or the other and they haven’t," Higdon explained. "However, elected officials are certainly allowed to."

He maintains that the town-sponsored materials about the bonds are neutral, and no laws have been broken.

Bond referendums are a common practice. The City of Charlotte has several requests on its ballot this election. However, Charlotte’s requests do not increase taxes for residents; instead, the city is asking for taxpayers’ permission to spend a large sum of existing money on projects.

Matthews’ bonds would increase residents’ property taxes if approved.

For example, if a Matthews resident has property valued at $360,000, they’d pay $11.08 more a month in property taxes if both bonds are approved and the total $35 million is issued at one time. That totals an extra $133 in property taxes a year.

McCool noted that it's unlikely for all transportation and parks projects to begin at once, so the borrowed money will likely be spaced out over time.

Not everyone is on board with the proposal.

“I just think $35 million is a lot for the taxpayers to come up with in the small town of Matthews," voter Richard Gibbs shared. "Being a taxpayer, I just don’t think it’s a good idea right now.”

Voter Jim Finch thinks it’s a small price to pay to help Matthews flourish.

“Nobody likes to spend money," Finch admitted. "But I think in this day and age, any parks -- anything that would bring us together, I would support that.”

If the bonds are approved, money could be issued as soon as next year. McCool said taxpayers would pay the debts back over the next 20 years.

More parking and sidewalks in downtown, a finished bike loop, and a completed Purser-Hulsey Park with a new pond, amphitheater, splashpad and playground.

These are some of the projects that are now a step closer to reality after voters in Matthews approved two bonds totaling $35 million in Tuesday's election.

Both bonds passed with 57% of the vote, according to preliminary vote totals Wednesday morning. More than 12,700 people voted total.

The vote means the town can borrow the money from investors, and it means Matthews residents will likely pay higher property taxes in the coming years to pay those investors back.

The town has said property taxes will rise 3.7 cents for every $100 in valuation once all the bonds are issued, which would likely be in stages. For a $360,000 house, taxes would go up about $133 a year.

$21 million for transportation

The first bond will direct $21 million to an array of transportation projects around the Matthews.

The projects would include adding more than 100 new downtown parking spaces and improving, widening and constructing more downtown sidewalks.

Library Lane and North Freeman Street would also become one-way streets, allowing for more sidewalks and parallel parking.

The town also planned to spend the money on improving the East Charles Street railroad intersection, adding a new sidewalk along East John Street from Greylock Ridge to the I-485 outer ramp, extending Greylock Ridge Road, and building more sidewalks elsewhere around town.

$14 million for parks and recreation

A second bond will give the town $14 million to complete park and recreation projects.

That includes the completion of the 93-acre Purser-Hulsey Park on Phillips Road. The town is proposing a new playground, splashpad, amphitheater and 3-acre pond for the park.

The town also planned to use the money to complete three segments of the Matthews Downtown Loop, a multi-use path that loops the downtown core of Matthews with several connections for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The money will also likely fund new restrooms at Windsor and Rice Parks, new playgrounds at Squirrel Lake and Sardis Road Parks and other park improvements.

The bonds were opposed by two town commissioners, Gina Hoover and Mark Tofano.

Matthews Mayor John Higdon said in July the bonds would "help pay for many amenities that our citizens have let us know that they'd like to see come to fruition.

"We simply just don't have enough money in our general fund to pay for them," he said.

Central Flea Market sets opening date in new spot after losing old Eastland Mall site

After losing its space 10 months ago at the former Eastland Mall site on Central Avenue, an open-air market is reopening nearly 8 miles away in south Charlotte.

The Central Flea Market, comprised mainly of Hispanic vendors, will open at 9 a.m. this Saturday and Sunday at 1720 Galleria Blvd., the nonprofit Action NC said Tuesday in a news release. Action NC has advocated for assistance and support of the flea market.

“I feel really grateful for being able to start selling again, in this new place, after so long since our flea market closed on Central Ave.,” vendor Iginia Rojas said in a statement to The Charlotte Observer.

The market will start off small and add more vendors, Héctor Vaca, a board member of the vendors’ Central Market Association, told The Charlotte Observer. It also will be renamed El Mercadito, “the little market,” he said.

Charlotte City Council member Tariq Bokhari and others helped secure the new location working with vendors, who made multiple pleas to the city for help relocating. In July, Bokhari secured free temporary space at parking lots between 6th and 9th streets and between Brevard and Caldwell streets, the Observer previously reported.

The new 11-acre, mostly paved space off Independence Boulevard and Monroe Road, near Matthews, has free customer parking.

The market will be open Saturdays and Sundays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Gates open for vendors to set up at 6 a.m.

In February, Central Market vendors were told by city staff to leave the property immediately, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.

Last fall, the city ended its lease agreement with the market operator to make way for a $175 million mixed-use development. Crosland Southeast began construction at the 80-acre site this summer after billionaire sports owner David Tepper pulled out of the project.

The market vendors formed the Central Market Association to find a new location working with city officials to find land and financial support, Vaca said in a statement.

Vaca said Charlie Mulligan helped broker a deal and Daniel Levine offered the land.
