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.
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 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.
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.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The Patriots Point Development Authority Board and Bennett Hospitality hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday to mark the start of a five-phase, 15-year development project.
The Patriots Annex project is a $300 million development that will include three hotels, restaurants, entertainment, shops, three office buildings, parks and an amphitheater. Developers estimate initial construction and submitting of remaining plans will start in fall 2023.
The project was approved five years ago by state supervisors. After the initial approval, Michael Bennett of Bennett Hospitality and his team began planning the development.
“I’m born and raised in Charleston and when Patriots Point presented the opportunity for me to help develop this property, just as a personal Charlestonian, I was very, very excited to think I could do something that was beautiful, and also help Patriots Point,” Bennett said. “It was a very natural fit for me.”
The largest hotel, the Grand Patriot, will sit towards the back of the property at 250 rooms. The other two hotels will have 100 to 150 rooms.
Gov. Henry McMaster was also at the groundbreaking alongside other state and Lowcountry government officials.
“This project is going to be wonderful [at] the Patriots Point Naval and US Maritime Museum,” McMaster said. “We’re going up. Tourism is a $24 billion business in South Carolina. So that is why we’re thriving. And I promise you, we’re going to keep on thriving.”
Bennett and McMaster said the development will establish hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in revenue. By using the land near the USS Yorktown, the money will help maintain the ships and aircraft located on Patriots Point.
“It is going to be a huge economic impact for not only Mount Pleasant, but for the entire Lowcountry in the state of South Carolina,” Bennett said. “There will be hundreds and hundreds of jobs that will afford local people to be able to work here and as well as welcomed visitors to come here.”
The first step in construction is to move the visitor parking lot due to much of the proposed development being built on that land. A new parking lot will be moved to accommodate visitors and tourists.
The project will take about 15 years with five phases to complete.

Mount Pleasant has spoken and the votes are in: the $50 million recreation referendum narrowly passed on Nov. 8.
The South Carolina Election Commission reported that of the 41,179 votes cast, 20,925 voted in favor of increasing property taxes to fund parks projects. It passed with a small margin of roughly 700 votes, about 1%.
Councilwoman G.M. Whitley has been a vocal supporter of the referendum since it was first discussed in town council. She said the referendum will allow the Town to fund recreation projects that would normally take several years.
“This is something that we would never be able to achieve without sort of unilaterally the council implementing something and so by putting it to the people and letting democracy work, that’s what we did. And the people spoke and they chose parks,” Whitley said.
The referendum specifies an increase of four mills. One mill is equal to an additional $4 per every $100,000 in the appraised value of a home. For a home valued at $500,000, residents can expect an $80 yearly increase on their tax bill. For a home valued at $700,000, residents can expect a $112 increase.
The tax increase plans to fund various parks and recreation projects throughout town with a majority of the funding going to Rifle Range Road Park. Other projects on the referendum included renovations for the Park West indoor pool, additional tennis courts for the Mugsy Kerr Tennis Complex and the construction of paths and trails to form Mount Pleasant Way. It will fund the acquisition and preservation of land and greenspace and the operation and maintenance of the new facilities.
The referendum appeared on the ballot as an advisory question, which allows voters to voice their opinion on a matter. Although voters said yes, the proposed property tax increase of four mills will not immediately go into effect. Rather, the council will use the outcome of the vote to decide the next steps.
For now, residents will not be paying more in property taxes. Town staff will be briefing council members at the next Recreation Committee and Town Council meetings in December on how to implement the four mill tax, or a debt issuance of $50 million, to residents.
“What we were doing as a council was allowing the voters to choose whether or not to self-impose a temporary tax increase in order to achieve additional recreation facilities for the community,” Whitley said.
Mayor Will Haynie opposed putting the referendum on the ballot, stating that it was not the right time for a tax increase. He said he was worried that the question would “split our community right down the middle.”
“If you look at it precinct by precinct, that is exactly what has happened,” Haynie said. “I think everybody on council realizes that the hard work begins now. The finances of this, getting bonds issued, getting things ready to get bids, dealing with the unexpected. Regardless of the outcome, I take that fiduciary responsibility seriously, and I plan to work on it all in good faith.”

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- Town leaders are urging Mount Pleasant residents to vote in favor of a recreation referendum on the ballot in November.
Members of the Mount Pleasant Town Council and local recreation leaders held a press conference on Tuesday to highlight the projects that the referendum would fund.
If approved, the referendum would levy a tax increase on property owners to fund several future recreation projects, including:
The referendum would cost taxpayers approximately $6.67 per month on a $500,000 home for a period of 15 years, according to officials.
Some town leaders including Councilmembers Gary Santos, Jake Rambo, John Iacofano, GM Whitley, and Howard Chapman, along with many residents, are in favor of the referendum and believe they are investing in the future of the town.
“We have to take care of our kids,” said Ralph Lundy, Mt. Pleasant Voter and former College of Charleston soccer coach. “That is the most important thing…to take care of our kids. And this does it.”
“Mt. Pleasant is a family-first community and that’s what this referendum is about,” said Councilman Jake Rambo. “It’s about providing our families, specifically our children, with the space to grow athletically, they can grow socially, emotionally, and in a safe environment.”
“We’ve gotta start focusing on building for the future and this referendum is gonna help us get there,” said Perry Rourk, the chairman of the Mt. Pleasant Recreational Advisory Committee.
While many will vote in favor of the referendum, others, including Mt. Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie, are concerned about the environmental impacts some new facilities could have.
“If recreation needs so much funding, why are there pictures out there that citizens are sending me like from this past weekend in great weather…tennis courts that are unused, ball fields that are unused,” said Mayor Haynie.
Mayor Haynie also believes a tax increase is irresponsible.
“I think it’s tone-deaf to propose a 10% tax hike on all the residents in Mt. Pleasant during the highest inflation we’ve had in 40 years,” he said. “It’s 10% across the board on your town taxes. 10% on your home, 10% on businesses, 10% on your car, 10% on your boat.”

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD)- A 15 year project started on Thursday to bring new business to Mount Pleasant and money to the Patriots Point Museum.
The Patriots Annex development will stand on 31 acres of land that Patriots Point is leasing to Bennett Hospitality to build on.
“We’re building around great ships and a great museum,” said Wayne Adams, the Vice Chairman of Patriots Point.
The development will have a grand hotel, multiple boutique hotels, restaurants, shops and a waterfront park with an amphitheater.
“We are going to create a waterfront park so that all the people can enjoy the most valuable piece of land,” said Michael Bennett, the developer of Patriot Annex. “The great hotel that we call The Grand Patriot will sit at the top and it’s the furthest away from the water.”
The lease of the land was something that Patriots Point has to do for the survival of the USS Yorktown, USS Laffey and airplanes in the museum. The historic artifacts need millions of dollars in upkeep every year. But, the solution to fund the renovation bill was not always straightforwards.
“I think how we were going to maintain the ships in a way that honors those who served on them and tells their story has been a struggle for years. A number of years ago we realized we had to monetize the land. That was the only way we were going to be able to do that without the taxpayers for dollars,” said Adams. “We expect it to pay for the maintenance on these ships for years to come, decades to come.”
The current construction on the east side of the museum is where trees are being cleared for the main parking lot at Patriots Annex that will be finished in a year. After that, construction on the buildings will begin.
“Charleston County is routinely named the best place in the county to visit because we are constantly improving. Projects like Patriots Point Annex are what keeps us at the top. What’s being built here today will be one of the most impressive developments we’ve seen in along time and supports Patriots Point and the museum’s mission,” said Chairman Teddie Pryor of the Charleston County Council.
The money made from leasing a new place for visitors and locals to enjoy the Lowcountry will mean that the Patriots Point Museum can fulfill their mission to those who served.
“We’re going to modernize exhibits. We’ll have new exhibits and new ways of telling the story of those who served on these ships,” said Adams.

Division: NCAA Division II
Conference: South Atlantic
Coach: Jaclyn Dickens
Last season: 13-12
Key returners: Brylee Jones, G, sr.; Amaya Lee, G, sr.; Emma Santoro, F, soph.; Taylor Owens, G, sr.
Promising newcomers: Breanna Yarber (Patrick Henry, Sullivan Central, Campbell University), Sophie Nelson (Parkersburg, W.Va.), Payton Monahan (Patrick Henry)
Key losses: Callie Haderer, Alexis Hoppers
Outlook: E&H prepared for the rigors of the NCAA Division II South Atlantic Conference last season by navigating a schedule that included three NCAA Division I foes.
“I thought that was needed because it got us ready for a new level of competition,” Dickens said. “Every game in the SAC will be a challenge, but we know what to expect now.”
The Wasps must replace the powerful Hoppers in the low post, but three starters return.
The 6-foot Santoro (King, N.C.) led the team with 10.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in 2021.
Lee (4.6 ppg.) is a defensive ace from Virginia High who averaged 4.1 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.5 steals while playing a team-high 33 minutes per game. Jones (7.7 ppg.) is a steady leader from Greeneville, Tennessee.
The 5-foot-10 Owens (Virginia High averaged six points and 2.5 rebounds, with 6-1 Grace Glance (Clyde, N.C) adding 5.1 points. Hannah Spainhour (King, N.C.) and Macy McClellan (Kingsport) each contributed 3.7 ppg.
“We still have improvements to make, but I’m excited about this group,” Dickens said. “When we get all the pieces together, I think we will look good.”
The roster makeup includes just three seniors and no juniors.
“We will rely on our experience early, but we have so many players that are capable of filling starting roles,” Dickens said. “Our lineup could be different from game to game.”
In the preseason poll of SAC head coaches, the Wasps were picked last among the 13 conference teams.
After falling 68-39 at Radford University in an exhibition game, E&H opened the season Nov. 12 with a 61-55 loss to Milligan.
The 6-foot-1 Yarber, who took a redshirt last season at Campbell, collected seven points as a starter against Milligan.
“Brenna has the talent to play several positions,” Dickens said. “A lot of schools will focus on her, and that will open up chances for our other kids.”
What does Dickens think of the jump from the non-scholarship NCAA Division III ranks?
“We’re just rolling with it,” Dickens said. “I think it’s exciting, and it makes sense with our location and proximity to other conference members.”
Coach’s Quote: “I feel good about the season. It always helps to have experience like we have, but we’re still young.”
Division: NCAA Division II
Conference: South Atlantic
Coach: Ben Thompson
Last season: 16-10
Key returners: Cade Looney, F, soph.; Gabe Brown, G, soph.; Jake Moynihan, F, soph.; Jacob Morgan, G, soph.; Jalen Leftwich, G, soph.; Malcolm Morgan, G, sr.; Micah Banks, G, sr.; Patrick Antonelli, G, jr.; Kevin Grau Rodriquez, F, Sr., Micah Banks, G, sr.
Promising newcomers: Jacob Dar (Omaha, Neb.), Marshall Klug (Greensboro, N.C.), Bradlee Wolf (Hampstead, N.C.), Christian Drummer (Lawrenceville, Ga.)
Key losses: Tyler Arnold, Anthony Williams
Outlook: The outlook is bright for E&H as nine veterans, including all five starters, return for the SAC obstacle course.
“All those players came in this summer to work and they are bigger, faster and stronger,” Thompson said.
The 6-foot-5 Brown (Ridgeview) has already earned respect with his third-team selection to the preseason all-conference team.
An athlete with a deadly touch from the perimeter, Brown paced the team in scoring (15.3 ppg.) last season while adding 5.8 rebounds per game and blocking 25 shots.
The 6-8 Looney (Grundy) started all 26 games as a freshman and made a smooth transition with averages of 14.3 points and 6.8 rebounds.
“Gabe just keeps getting better, and he had a SportsCenter Top 10 worthy dunk last weekend,” Thompson said. “Cade is solid, and I’ve been really pleased with overall with our depth and balance.”
Moynihan (Muncie, Indiana) provides toughness in the interior with his 6-6, 200-pound frame.
Antonelli (Mount Pleasant, S.C.) averaged 6.7 points and 4.9 assists in 21 starts. Rodriguez (Tampa) shot 44% from the field and averaged 10 points.
The 6-2 Banks (Simpsonsville, S.C) is a fifth-senior who contributed 8.4 points and 3.7 rebounds, while the 6-3 Malcolm Morgan (Concord, N.C.) is another athletic senior who compiled a line of 11.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 26 starts.
Leftwich, a smooth 6-4 playmaker from Liberty Christian Academy in Lynchburg, topped the team with a 59% success rate from the field and averaged 12.3 points.
The 6-6 Jacob Morgan (Huntersville, N.C.) shot 42% from the three-point line and crafted an impressive 86% mark on free throws.
“We have probably the best chemistry of any team I’ve ever coached,” Thompson said. “These guys love one another and are growing together.”
After dropping exhibition games at UNC-Wilmington (88-47) and ETSU (88-66), the Wasps opened the season Nov. 12 with a 96-89 home victory against Bluefield State.
E&H was picked for last, just one point behind the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, in the preseason poll of SAC head coaches.
“The South Atlantic is a NCAA Division I league that masquerades itself at the Division II level,” Thompson said. “Just look at early this season where Lenoir-Rhyne beat Louisville despite not having its best player. SAC teams consistently win against Division I teams. We have to be at a Division I level to compete in this league.”
Thompson said his players have embraced the challenge of Division II competition.
“Our guys are not backing down from anybody,” Thompson said.
The 6-4 Drummer was a defensive stopper at the Class 7A level in the Atlanta area, while Dar is an athletic 6-7 wing from Sudan who played high school ball in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The 6-9 Klug and 6-10 Wolf bring size.
Coach’s Quote: “We have a chance to be special. We return a lot and added four really good freshmen. There are some talented dudes in this league, so we will have to be really good.”
