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.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - More than 800 people have signed a petition to save a running track that is likely to be eliminated because of new editions at a North Charleston facility.
Improvements coming to the Danny Jones Athletic Facility will include a new aquatics center and a gymnasium. But with the new additions, City of North Charleston spokesperson Ryan Johnson said the footprint of the building will increase, leading to space constraints on the site, which will eliminate the track itself.
Johnson said the football field currently at the site will remain.
An area running club, the Park Circle Pacers, has 300 members, including 100 active members. They practice at the Danny Jones track regularly for their Tuesday evening workouts. Members of the group say that losing the track would be a huge loss for not only them, but for the whole community.
A walking and biking trail will surround the site, but members say that’s not enough.
Member Erin Atkinson said the track provides safety features that you can’t get while running on the street or sidewalks.
“The hazards that I see every day, between sidewalks not being cleared, having debris or trash there, motorists not paying attention, or sometimes being hostile towards runners or walkers,” Atkinson said. “Having an area like this where you can just focus on your workout and getting in some fitness without having to worry about your safety is key.”
Brian Johnson is a cross country and track and field coach at Academic Magnet. To Johnson, losing the track would make it harder for his team to get to a facility to practice since the track is close to their school now.
“So many times, you have teenagers traveling to go practice somewhere,” Johnson said. “That adds a liability.”
Michelle Huntley isn’t part of the running group but lives a half mile away in Park Circle. She said when she walks or drives by the track, she sees people utilizing it morning, noon, and night.
“You just don’t see that with other recreation facilities, something that’s used so frequently,” Huntley said.
The city said the projected completion time for the project is late 2023.
“To lose this track would be a travesty,” said Lionel Adams, at-large director for the Road Runners Club of America. “We just can’t see this empowering everyone to run if this is missing.”
Members say they plan on speaking at the next North Charleston City Council meeting.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston Waterkeeper says almost half of their testing sites in area waterways are not safe for swimming following recent storms and flooding throughout the Lowcountry.
After a week of heavy rain and flooding, Charleston Waterkeeper Andrew Wunderley said nine of their testing sites have tested above state limits for bacteria levels, including Filbin Creek in North Charleston, which tested nine times above the state standard.
“What we’re talking about with high bacteria levels are your risk of exposure to pathogens that can get you sick,” Wunderley said.
The organization released its weekly testing data Friday morning and said the results were striking.
Along with Filbin Creek, all of Shem Creek and Brittlebank Park all showed high bacteria levels, such as tuberculosis, cholera and staph.
Wunderley said the recent storms helped these levels rise to some of the highest they have been this summer.
“All of our stormwater and our floodwater drains away into a creek like Shem Creek or just like Filbin Creek,” he said. “Everything that’s on the ground goes along with it, so dog waste, wildlife waste, leaking septic tanks, overflowing sewers.”
Mount Pleasant resident Cory Sieburg said he will not be going into the water this weekend because of the bacteria levels. He pointed out a childhood incident that made him aware of water pollution levels.
“We moved from Chicago a few months ago, and Lake Michigan is kind of a dump, so a lot of the sewage is in there,” Sieburg recalled. “As a kid, I would go swimming in the water not knowing about any sort of high bacteria, and then, when I get home, I start throwing up, and it wasn’t a good time.”
Wunderley recommends people avoid these creeks and rivers for two days following a rainstorm. If they do go, he said to wash up and keep the water out of their mouth, nose and eyes.
“We see a real strong relationship between rainfall and tide stage and water quality,” Wunderley said, “and so outgoing tide, a lot of rain, that’s a recipe for very high pollution, very high bacteria in your creeks and rivers.”
Charleston Waterkeeper has put out a map of the areas deemed unsafe for swimming.
Wunderley also said people can help control bacteria levels by picking up their dog’s waste and regularly inspecting their septic tanks.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — To a lot of people, running is everything. For North Charleston runners, the future of a popular track is being called into question.
The City of North Charleston recently released a $25 million budget plan that may get rid of a popular track in the Danny Jones Recreation Complex.
The Park Circle Pacers- a running club with 300 members and 100 active running members- is doing everything it can to make sure that does not happen.
“I think it would be a huge loss for the community," said Erin Atkinson, a founding member of the Park Circle Pacers. "I think that’s one thing that people who don’t maybe visit tracks don’t realize that it’s not just our running club out here, it’s all different types of people here.
The plan would include putting a walking trail around the complex instead, which some say could force runners to take alternative routes.
"Well we would have to run in the roads and risk getting hit," said Daniel Clapper who has been running on the track since 1985.
For the Park Circle Pacers, running means empowerment.
“Well, I think it would be a travesty if they removed it," said Lionel Adams, the at-large director for Road Runners Club of America. "Being on the board of directors for the Road Runners Club of America, we want to empower everyone to run and we can’t see a vision of empowering everyone to run if we’re removing facilities that are usable and safe for the constituents here in North Charleston to be able to exercise freely.”
Their main goal is to keep the track so the City of North Charleston can continue to shine.
"It's our turn to shine, North Charleston needs to shine," said Clapper.
The plans are not finalized yet, but the Park Circle Pacers have started a petition to keep the track. The petition has over 700 signatures as of July 17.
They also plan on attending the next city council meeting so the mayor can hear some of their concerns.
If you want to learn more about the Park Circle Pacers or sign their petition to stop the removal of the track, you can find them on Facebook.
