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. — The city of Monroe has been without a permanent leader after the city council abruptly voted two weeks ago to fire its city manager and city attorney.

That changed Tuesday night.

City council members hired Mark Watson as the new city manager.

Watson is a former Union County manager who was fired last year and is currently under investigation for malfeasance.

#Breaking City Council of Monroe hires Mark Watson as new city manager.Council member Freddie Gordon says there was no application or interview process and a bad HR policy.

— Genevieve Curtis (@GenevieveonTV) March 14, 2023

The minority of the city council accused the majority of firing the city’s attorney and manager with the sole intention of hiring Watson.

The City of Monroe said Thursday that its assistant city attorney was at the meeting and that there were no violations of city procedures or state law.

“It’s simply not good business,” said Councilman Freddie Gordon.

Councilman Lynn Keziah didn’t see a problem with it and said this was an opportunity the city of Monroe could not pass up.

“Mr. Watson has a tremendous reputation,” Keziah said. “He’s a good man and when you find someone like you, try to take advantage of that.”

The change will cost taxpayers more than $700,000 in severances and new salaries.

Keziah said it was worth it for taxpayers.

“I think he’s worth that and more,” Keziah said.

Mayor Marion Holloway said, “It’s kind of an unusual way to have it done but it’s done now.”

There was no application or interview process in hiring Watson.

“There wasn’t an interview process. How do you know you made the right decision if you didn’t vet any other candidates?” Channel 9′s Genevieve Curtis asked.

“By his experience,” Keziah answered. “It’s just like if I’m a football coach. If I win 99 and lose one, I must be pretty good.”

The mayor voted against firing the former city manager and against hiring Watson but says it’s time to work together.

“We don’t have the best reputation for keeping city managers and hopefully that can change with marks hiring,” the mayor said.

Hiring the city manager wasn’t on the agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting and it happened during the closed session, which was voted on afterward.

The search for a city attorney is ongoing.

Monroe converts back to 'chloramination' to disinfect the drinking water

During the last few weeks, the City of Monroe has also flushed its water supply system by running fire hydrants.

MONROE, N.C. — The city of Monroe is wrapping up its annual drinking water treatment process this week.

Throughout much of the year, Monroe's water treatment facility, which is located on Lake Twitty, adds chlorine and ammonia to the water to disinfect the drinking water, according to the city. In March, to comply with North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources permitting requirements, Monroe resorts to using only chlorine. By Friday, the ammonia is expected to be mixed back into the water supply.

Water comes from a variety of sources, such as lakes and wells, which can be contaminated with germs that may make people sick, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Germs can also contaminate water as it travels through miles of piping to get to a community, according to the CDC. To prevent contamination with germs, water companies add a disinfectant—usually either chlorine or chloramine—that kills disease-causing germs such as Salmonella, Campylobacter, and norovirus.

During the last few weeks, the City of Monroe has also flushed its water supply system by running fire hydrants.

"This is a normal component of the process and customers should be reassured that water quality is not affected and remains safe for drinking, bathing, cooking and other general uses," the city of Monroe said in a released statement. "There are groups of customers, including kidney dialysis patients, fish aquarium owners, and certain industries, which will need to be aware of the change and possibly, make adjustments in the way they remove chlorine from their water."

In response to the recent change, some have responded on the city's Facebook page denoting changes in the smell or taste of the water.

Chlorinated water can taste and smell different than untreated water, the CDC explains on their website. Taste and smell problems may arise depending upon the water quality and amount of chlorine in the water.

Safe chlorine levels in drinking water is up to 4 milligrams per liter, according to the CDC.

Veteran questions City of Monroe policy after American flags removed from graves

The City of Monroe said it requires pre-approval for certain objects left at gravesites.

MONROE, N.C. (WBTV) - A Union County veteran reached out to WBTV after he said the City of Monroe removed American flags he placed next to graves.

He said it’s something he’s been doing for years to honor men and women who have served.

This happened at the Suncrest Cemetery in Monroe.

“I come out here and I walk and run every morning and I like to look at the old graves,” Michael Belk said. “A lot of people I served with, a lot of people that served in the Army or Navy before me are buried out here, and probably about two years ago I started putting little flags on their graves.”

Belk said he was surprised when he returned a few days later to find the flags gone.

“I had a lot of flags in this cemetery and one day about two weeks ago there were no flags and there were no flowers,” he said.

He said he reached out to the city but did not receive a response, so he contacted WBTV.

“If somebody raised their right hand and put their left hand on the Bible and swore to defend this country and took an oath, what’s wrong with putting an American flag standing up at their tombstone?” he asked.

A city spokesperson said the flags were blocking their lawnmowers, so the maintenance team had to remove them.

That spokesperson also pointed to a notice posted outside of the cemetery, which says obstructions above the ground to grave sites require prior approval by the city.

Belk admits he missed the notice, but believes city officials should do more to inform the community about this.

“A lot of people that come out here come from from out of town and they have no way of knowing, and they spend a lot of for a flower or a flag or whatever, and they put it down and, you know, it could be gone in a week,” he said.

He hopes the city will reconsider the ordinance.

“I’ll see the flag, it gets you,” he said. “You’ve got guys that you’ve served with that did die, or you know of people in your community that were in a different branch that served and maybe didn’t come home, and it means a lot to me. It means an awful lot.”

MONROE, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – In ten minutes and with two votes, the leadership changed in the City of Monroe on Tuesday.

City manager Brian Borne, and city attorney Mujeeb Shah-Khan, were fired after a closed-door session.

We asked if he was blindsided, and Shah-Khan said, “Yes, but that’s the decision the council made; they have the authority and the ability to make it. Whether or not I agree with it is another issue entirely.”

“A lot has been done, a lot of positive things for the city,” added Borne when asked about the decision. “So I don’t know what the complaint is.”

City council members didn’t shed much light on the issue in the meeting. This is the second city manager to be let go in three years and the eighth city manager in 14 years. The current vote left longstanding council members baffled.

“In those 12 years, I’ve never had a motion presented to me that I feel so strongly against,” said councilmember Freddie Gordon before he voted no.

“We had a meeting with the city manager, and we decided to put him on probation,” said councilmember Lynn Keziah after the vote in the city hall parking lot. “And he came up with some pretty choice words that weren’t too much appreciated by present council.”

“I think we’ve always been civil,” countered Borne. “Now, I do occasionally let a cuss word out, but I don’t cuss at anybody.”

The council appointed Lisa Strickland as interim city manager, and the assistant city attorney will take over legal duties.

The plan is to hire a new city attorney in a couple of weeks, and there is talk it will be former Union County manager Mark Watson. Watson was fired from his position in December 2022 for possible wrongdoing.

Borne and Shah-Khan will get a severance package worth a combined $484,000, and when each man was asked what taxpayers in Monroe should think about the moves.

“They should ask their elected officials why those decisions were made today,” said Shah-Khan.

“Think about your vote,” added Borne. “Vote carefully.”

A California burger joint will open its fourth North Carolina store, this time in Monroe, as the chain expands in the Charlotte region.

The Habit Burger Grill, known for its cooked-to-order chargrilled burgers, will debut March 1 at 2121 W. Roosevelt Blvd. near Monroe Crossing Road, the company exclusively told The Charlotte Observer on Tuesday.

The Monroe store is part of The Habit Burger’s expansion plan to open 15 stores in the Charlotte region. Another store is planned at Mooresville at 379 W. Plaza Drive in the former Popeye’s site off Interstate 77. The company does not have a schedule yet for opening the store, company officials said.

Along with its burgers cooked over an open flame, Habit Burger’s menu includes sandwiches such as marinated chicken, sushi-grade ahi tuna and tenderloin steaks, sides like tempura green beans and salads, plus milkshakes.

The Monroe restaurant will offer dine-in, takeout and drive-thru with curbside pick-up and delivery available via The Habit mobile app and online at order.habitburger.com.

Indoor self-serve kiosks also are available. Delivery is through third-party vendors: Grubhub, DoorDash, Postmates and Uber Eats.

Both Charlotte-area stores will be free-standing buildings, 2,500 to 3,000 square feet, the Observer previously reported. Both stores have drive-thrus. Before the COVID pandemic, The Burger Habit chain was 65% dine-in.

Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

The Habit Burger will hold several pre-opening events.

? On Saturday, the first 200 customers at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. receive a free Charburger, fries and drink.

? On Monday and Tuesday: The first 200 customers at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. receive a free chargrilled meal from a pre-set menu.

Customers must be CharClub member and present VIP invitation by signing up at habitburger.com/monroe/.

The first Habit Burger Grill opened in 1969 in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969.

The Habit Burger Grill has over 350 restaurants in 14 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia and Washington.

There are 12 international locations, five in China and seven in Cambodia.

The Carolinas stores are part of the company’s expansion plan to open 2,000 stores in the U.S. and 10,000 worldwide, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.

In 2019, Habit Burger opened two stores locally, one at 7740 Charlotte Highway in Indian Land, S.C., and another at 209 S. Kings Drive in Charlotte. The South Carolina store is still open but the Charlotte store closed within a year.

The Habit Burger’s other North Carolina stores are in Clemmons, Burlington and Fayetteville. Another store is expected to open this year in Greensboro.
