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 Monroe:
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.

MONROE, N.C. — It was an unexpected shakeup this week as Monroe City Council members voted to oust the city’s manager and attorney, and neither of them say they saw this coming.

The now former city attorney and city manager tell Channel 9 they were blindsided by the decision by a divided city council. It’s the latest turmoil at Monroe City Hall, which hasn’t had consistent leadership for the past decade.

“This is the most aggressive, audacious, arrogant, unethical motion I have ever been asked to vote on,” said Monroe City Council Member Freddie Gordon.

Gordon, along with Monroe Mayor Marion Holloway, praised the work of former city manager Brian Borne and former city attorney Mujeeb Shah-Khan, saying there was no logical reason for their firings.

But Gordon and Holloway were outnumbered, and the rest of the council members voted to fire Borne and Shah-Khan.

Channel 9′s Genevieve Curtis tried to get more information, but council members Gary Anderson, James Kerr, and Julie Thompson wouldn’t share their reasoning for the shakeup.

Shah-Khan says he’s witnessed council turn over city managers, but now he finds himself on the outs.

“It’s a challenge for the citizens of Monroe who have to ask themselves what their leaders are doing,” he said.

Borne has worked for the city nearly 15 years, and he’s the eighth city manager in that time span.

“It’s not a good track record. Monroe has an excellent, very professional staff, and it’s unfortunate we have to work in this climate, but it is what it is,” Borne told Channel 9.

The move appeared to be a precursor to the city replacing Borne with Mark Watson, the recently fired Union County manager.

Shah-Khan says he made the council aware that Watson is under investigation for malfeasance, but he’s distancing himself from the council.

“I don’t have those legal concerns anymore because as of a few minutes ago, it’s not my problem, that’s an issue the citizens of Monroe need to take a look at,” said Shah-Khan.

Council member Lynn Keziah told Channel 9 that the dismissals on Tuesday came down to a difference in direction and personalities.

“When you hire someone, you hope they’re going to fit, and he didn’t fit,” Keziah said.

That difference in personality and direction is going to end up costing Monroe taxpayers more than half a million dollars. Borne will receive a severance of $270,610 while Shah-Khan will receive $213,399.

Keziah also defended Watson, saying that he was “following what county commissioners told him to do.”

We asked if there were any complaints filed against either employee, and council members told us there were none.

Alison Thomas was reported missing by family members after last being seen in the Flint Ridge Road area around Feb. 13.

JACKSON COUNTY, N.C. — A Monroe woman who was reported missing back in February was found dead earlier this week, according to deputies.

On Feb. 17, the Union County Sheriff's Office announced Alison Thomas, 37, was reported missing by family members after last being seen in the Flint Ridge Road area around Feb. 13.

PREVIOUSLY: Union County woman reported missing by family

On Thursday, deputies announced the Jackson County Sheriff's Office was notified that the body of a woman was found in their jurisdiction, officials said. The woman was identified as Thomas following an initial investigation.

This case is now being investigated as a homicide. The Union County Sheriff's Office is working closely with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation to find out who is responsible for Thomas's death.

Anyone providing information that leads to an arrest could receive up to a $5,000 reward and may remain anonymous.

Deputies said this is being investigated as an isolated incident and there is no cause for concern for anyone in the Jackson County or Union County areas.

Ana de Armas Doesn't 'Understand' Why 'Blonde' Got NC-17 Rating When Other Films Are 'Way More Explicit'

Ana de Armas doesn't think her Marilyn Monroe movie deserves its NC-17 rating.

The actress portrays the Hollywood icon in Netflix's Blonde, a fictionalized version of Monroe's life that's based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates. When it comes to the film's much-talked-about NC-17 rating from the Motion Picture Association (a step higher than rated R), de Armas doesn't see how Blonde is more graphic than other mainstream content right now.

"I didn't understand why that happened. I can tell you a number of shows or movies that are way more explicit with a lot more sexual content than Blonde," she told L'Officiel.

"But to tell this story it is important to show all these moments in Marilyn's life that made her end up the way that she did," continued de Armas, 34. "It needed to be explained. Everyone [in the cast] knew we had to go to uncomfortable places. I wasn't the only one."

Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free weekly newsletter to get the biggest news of the week delivered to your inbox every Friday.

The MPA gave the movie an NC-17 rating "for some sexual content."

Director Andrew Dominik told ScreenDaily in February that he had always intended for his Monroe movie, which was filmed in 2019, to score an NC-17 rating.

"It's an NC-17 movie about Marilyn Monroe. It's kind of what you want, right? I want to go and see the NC-17 version of the Marilyn Monroe story," Dominik said at the time, adding, "It's a demanding movie. If the audience doesn't like it, that's the f-----g audience's problem. It's not running for public office."

He told Vulture in May, though, that he was "surprised" by the rating.

"I thought we'd colored inside the lines. But I think if you've got a bunch of men and women in a boardroom talking about sexual behavior, maybe the men are going to be worried about what the women think. It's just a weird time," said Dominik. "It's not like depictions of happy sexuality. It's depictions of situations that are ambiguous. And Americans are really strange when it comes to sexual behavior, don't you think? I don't know why."

Blonde debuts on Netflix Sept. 23.

Sept. 28, Netflix is set to release “Blonde,” a Netflix-produced Marilyn Monroe biopic starring Ana De Armas as the iconic actress. The movie is rumored to focus on Monroe’s life outside of the spotlight as Norma Jeane Mortenson.

At first glance, the movie screams Oscar bait, but when news broke of the NC-17 rating placed on the film, the outlook of the movie changed completely. In fact, “Blonde” was filmed all the way back in 2019, before the pandemic and well before De Armas broke onto the scene as a mainstream actress. The film’s reliance on sexual content was highly contested for years between Netflix and the movie’s director, Andrew Dominik, a well-respected Australian director who has certainly garnered a reputation for his raw style of filmmaking. In an interview with ScreenDaily, Dominik had some choice words for the NC-17 rating.

“It’s a demanding movie,” Dominik said. “If the audience doesn’t like it, that’s the … audience’s problem.”

Dominik certainly has a reason to be angered with the rating assigned by the Motion Picture Association of America. For one thing, an assigned NC-17 rating is incredibly rare.

Most importantly, NC-17 ratings are known as “the kiss of death” for box office performance. The best performance from an NC-17 rated film was 1995’s “Showgirls,” which recouped $20.4 million of its $45 million budget.

With the movie rolling out for public release on Netflix this Friday, De Armas went on the record calling the film’s rating unwarranted while further echoing the challenge of creating a film that captures the hardships Mortenson experienced.

As predicted, early critic reviews of the film make it out to be an incredibly divisive piece.

“With a passion that’s inquisitive, nearly meditative, and often powerful, ‘Blonde’ focuses on the mystery we now think of when we think of Marilyn Monroe,” Owen Gleiberman of Variety said.

On the other hand, the film has also received a lot of criticism as it relates to its raw portrayal of Mortenson’s personal vices and struggles and consequently not enough attention or praise on the symbol she built for herself and women across America.

K. Austin Collins of Rolling Stone said, “It leaves too little room (despite its two hour and 40 minute runtime) to reconcile the fuller reality of this woman.”

We will see how audiences react to the controversial film when it is released later this week.

President Biden to pardon two turkeys from North Carolina

MONROE, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – Thanksgiving is a little more than a week away, and just as he has done for the past 75 years, the president will pardon two turkeys from ending up on your dining room table.

This year’s National Thanksgiving Turkeys will come from Circle S Ranch in Monroe, North Carolina.

According to Circle S General Manager Ronnie Parker, raising turkeys fit for a presidential presentation has been no easy task.

“We’ve been training them and working with them, and the two that have presented themselves the best are the two that will make the trip to the White House,” he said.

Parker is currently serving as the chairman of the National Turkey Federation, which is why he was selected to bring the turkeys to the White House this year.

“It’s a tremendous honor – just the history of the White House and being there,” said Parker. “The great thing for me is my family – my wife, three children, and six grandchildren – will get to go.”

The ranch started its search for the perfect turkeys with a flock of 30 one-day-old birds. They’ve been raising them for the past 18 weeks, choosing which two are best suited for pardoning.

“We have a table in there that we train them to sit on, and the ones that sit on that table and behave the best are the ones that get to make the trip to the White House,” said Parker.

Circle S and their contract growers raise about nine and a half million turkeys each year, which equates to about 320 million pounds of meat.

“We just do our very best to take care of them, and if we take care of them, then they’ll do their very best,” said Parker.

Parker and his family will travel to Washington, D.C., this weekend for the celebrations. The turkeys will even stay in their own motel room while on their trip.

The presidential pardoning is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 21.

After they are pardoned, Parker says they will live out their days at N.C. State University.
