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.

‘Little neighborhood pub’ aims to bring people together in downtown Matthews

It’s the culmination of a three-year journey for owner Gary Murray, who modeled it after a local pub in his hometown of Limerick, Ireland.Murray calls the Social House a “labor of love,” having done much of the renovation work himself while working part time bartending at a local country club.“I wanted to create an I...

Matthews Social House opened this summer in an old bike shop in the heart of downtown Matthews. It’s the culmination of a three-year journey for owner Gary Murray, who modeled it after a local pub in his hometown of Limerick, Ireland.

Murray calls the Social House a “labor of love,” having done much of the renovation work himself while working part time bartending at a local country club.

“I wanted to create an Irish bar that looks like an Irish bar,” said Murray, who came to America at age 19 on an engineering scholarship. “The draft towers were imported from Ireland. The mirrors and whiskey barrels came directly from my old neighborhood bar in Ireland.”

What he couldn’t find in Ireland, he sourced through Facebook Marketplace. Lined along the back wall of the pub are refurbished church pews. The bar counter is made from 120-year-old floorboards from an Amish Mennonite Church in Ohio. The 100-year-old shelves came from a Monroe warehouse.

Murray and his business partner, Adam “Jacko” Jackson, have been planning the pub since just before the COVID-19 pandemic began. It was set to open last fall, hence the “Est. 2022” on a wooden sign that hangs by the front door, but permitting and other issues delayed the process.

It was worth the wait. Since opening in June, the pub and beer garden nestled on Charles Street just around the corner from Trade Street has taken off.

“When people come here for the first time, their eyes are just so big and their faces light up,” Murray said. “We call it a Social House because we want strangers to talk. We have the long tables because hopefully two groups will gather around and strike up a conversation.”

Inside, the 1,000-square-foot building holds about 50 people in an intimate setting with six tables and a bar. A pool table is the focal point – the only pool table in downtown Matthews, Murray said.

Outside is where all of the action is. The expansive patio area has seating for 180 people, with 10 long tables, eight six-person tables and 10 high top tables converted from old whiskey barrels designed to look like pints of Guinness – dark on the bottom with creamy white tops. There’s also a food truck, walk-up beer window, ice cream stand, cornhole and large wooden swing.

As for the food and drink options, Murray says they are “keeping it simple” with the food truck by offering a selection of three burgers— a cheeseburger, a Carolina BBQ burger and an Aloha burger with the pub’s signature crack sauce and pineapple — as well as fries.

The pub has a full bar and specializes in whiskey and bourbons from Ireland and other countries. The pints of Guinness are just like back in Ireland, Murray said, with the “perfect temperature and nitrogen blend.”

The pub is “very family-friendly,” Murray added, noting that both he and Jacko have young kids. “We wanted to create a community space where we could be proud to bring our families. It’s a little neighborhood pub in downtown Matthews, and we couldn’t be happier about bringing people together.”

MATTHEWS, N.C. — Some parents in Matthews have an issue when it comes to a school bus route in their neighborhood. They claim the new route is adding a lot of time and distance to their child's commute to and from school.

Priscilla Green is one of the parents that has safety concerns over the change.

"The challenge for me is the safety issue that she has to walk across a hill," Green said.

For the latest breaking news, weather and traffic alerts, download the WCNC Charlotte mobile app and enable push notifications.

Green's daughter is 5 years old and attends Crown Point Elementary School. She claimed she found out about the change through a teacher.

Green's daughter is riding with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools transportation for the first time this school year, and the latest change is moving her bus stop blocks away from the original stop.

“I was concerned that I was going to miss her or that she would be too scared to get off the bus and walk by herself over here home, if I'm ever not able to get off the bus or a parent or grandparent isn't able to come on time to pick her up," Green added.

The concern with school transportation goes beyond Green and her daughter.

You can stream WCNC Charlotte on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, just download the free app.

“I mean, it's their safety," Green said. "My daughter is not the only one. I spoke with a previous parent before, and there was a lot of children that were getting off at that bus stop and now they no longer can. I think is definitely a concern. They're further away from their homes. And it's not safe.”

WCNC Charlotte reached out to CMS about the route change and were told the district is looking into the change.
