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.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — Seven people have been arrested following an investigation into gamecock fighting and illegal gambling in and around Ridgeville.
On Friday, authorities said the individuals were arrested on Wednesday after the investigation by a joint team of federal, state, and local law enforcement officers.
Those arrested are facing a slew of charges following an indictment, with counts for some including animal fighting venture, illegal gambling operation, conspiracy to violate animal fighting venture, and false statement to a federal law enforcement officer.
The individuals, and their respective charges, are listed below:
Officers have placed a legal hold on the property involved following the indictment. Authorities also seized cash and three vehicles that they said were used in connection with the operation.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Inspector General, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), and Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office worked together to investigate this incident. Assistant United States Attorney Chris Lietzow will prosecute the case.
Marty Irby, executive director of Animal Wellness Action, a nonprofit organization that works to prevent cruelty to animals through public policy, issued the following statement on the arrests:
We applaud the local, state, and federal authorities for taking action and arresting these suspects on cockfighting related charges and hope they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Rep. Nancy Mace has been a tremendous leader on this issue and we applaud her continued work to crackdown against this egregious abuse as well.
Cockfighting runs rampant in South Carolina as we've seen in case after case over the past few years. This gruesome blood-sport is not only cruel but is a serious risk to both human and poultry health as fighting birds can easily spread Avian Influenza, a disease that has recently appeared in at least 35 states in the U.S. It’s time to stamp out this form of staged cruelty.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) — Wednesday marks the 11th day 76-year-old Ruth Jenkins has been missing, and her disappearance is causing concern for family, friends and neighbors in the Pineville community.

According to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office, she was last seen on Saturday, July 16 at around 2 p.m. on Highway 45 in the Pineville area.
Deputies say she was looking for her dog.
Sheleane Jenkins, Ruth's daughter, describes her as a sweet, kind and gentle-hearted woman.
"She is really a church-going lady. She was involved in so many churches, including the Baptist Church, Jehovah's Church, Lighthouse Holiness Church; she was very involved," Jenkins said.
An avid volunteer and substitute teacher, Ruth Jenkins is an active member of the community. So, when she disappeared on July 16, the people of Pineville got involved.
"She is one of us, she is a teacher in schools that we went to, and schools that our children came up in. She was a substitute teacher, she was an active member of her church, she was a beautiful member of her community," says Sharia Washington, who is leading the search for Jenkins.
Causing even more concern for everyone is the fact that Ruth suffers from dementia.
"She was trying to fight it as much as she can. She was trying to remember a lot of important information," her daughter says.
Still, Sheleane Jenkins is trying to stay hopeful in the search for her mother.
"It is getting a little bit discouraging that it has been so many days, but I am definitely not giving up hope, and we are going to keep pushing forward," Jenkins says.
She is asking everyone to keep an eye out for her.
"If you see a lady who walks with both her hands behind her back, it is possible that's my mama," says Jenkins.
We reached out to the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office for an update on the case.
They referred us back to their initial post about the missing woman from July 17 encouraging people with information to contact the sheriff's office at 843-719-4412.
Deputies say foul play is not suspected in her disappearance.

The Leadership Dorchester Class of 2022 — a Summerville/Dorchester Chamber of Commerce program composed of local professionals from several industries — has recently announced that it’s project placement of a new pavilion structure at the future site of the Dorchester Heritage Center is nearing its completion.
The public introduction of the 14′ x 20′ community access pavilion kicks off at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 22 at 934 U.S. Highway 78 in Ridgeville. The ceremony will be followed by a Fall Family Fest inviting community members to indulge in edibles provided by on-site food trucks, as well as providing music, trick-or-treat activities for kids, along with a jump castle.
Led by SeamonWhitside PE Aaron Schmitt, the Class of 2022′s team of 25-30 members is approaching the finish line of what’s been a four-month collaboration to welcome the St. George-based Dorchester Heritage Center to the community, as it will occupy 20,000 square feet of space along U.S. Highway 78 (near SC 27).
With the new museum’s estimated completion of construction projected for sometime in 2024, Schmitt and company decided that they wanted to launch a sustainable project that would leave a lasting legacy.
By placing the pavilion in front of the yet-to-be-built Heritage Center edifice, said Schmitt, the end-goal was to create a safe outdoor environment for visitors to gather and celebrate at future outdoor events.
“Say we look 10 years down the road … that pavilion will be used as an outdoor event space and recreation space,” stated the SeamonWhiteside project manager. “The pavilion is set back to a lineup of trees, so it’s got these beautiful oaks around it.”
The Leadership Dorchester team’s determination to procure and install the $50,000 pavilion wasn’t made in a vacuum, added Schmitt, as a survey was distributed to the public, asking for taxpayer input.
“They could fill out that survey and submit it to us as more of a request for their needs, so that we could then say, ‘Is this something that we want to do? Is this something that our project wants to be part of?’ From that, we kind of weeded out what we did and didn’t want to do.”
It was further noted that the funding of the venture was supplied by the Class of 2022 thanks to fundraising efforts from the group’s members.
The forthcoming ribbon-cutting, maintained Schmitt, is the “final hurrah” to nearly year-long process that began in January.
Going forward, the Summerville/Dorchester Chamber of Commerce reports that applications for the Leadership Dorchester Class of 2023 are currently open.
New Jersey-based Saxum Real Estate Development and Investment Co. plans to build a pair of cold-storage warehouses at the Ridgeville Industrial Campus to take advantage of fast-paced growth in frozen and chilled food products moving through the Port of Charleston.The state’s Fiscal Accountability Authority on May 31 approved the State Ports Authority’s plan to sell 30 acres at its Ridgeville site to Saxum for $3.3 million, or $110,000 per acre.Saxum’s plan is to build two temperature-controlled warehouses tota...
New Jersey-based Saxum Real Estate Development and Investment Co. plans to build a pair of cold-storage warehouses at the Ridgeville Industrial Campus to take advantage of fast-paced growth in frozen and chilled food products moving through the Port of Charleston.
The state’s Fiscal Accountability Authority on May 31 approved the State Ports Authority’s plan to sell 30 acres at its Ridgeville site to Saxum for $3.3 million, or $110,000 per acre.
Saxum’s plan is to build two temperature-controlled warehouses totaling 395,100 square feet at the site. The $90 million project — which previously went by the code name Project Aardvark — eventually will employ about 100 people moving roughly 985 million pounds of frozen and refrigerated goods, such as pork and poultry, each year. That amounts to an additional 5,000 cargo containers moving through the port’s terminals annually.
A construction timetable was not provided.
It would be the second tenant at the 1,000-acre, rail-served industrial park located at the intersection of U.S. 78 and S.C. 27 in Dorchester County, which the SPA purchased in 2018 from paper and packaging giant WestRock.
Walmart opened a 3 million-square-foot import distribution center at the site in January that supplies about 850 stores with retail goods brought through the port. That $220 million project employs about 1,000 people and is expected to boost annual cargo levels at the port by 70,000 containers.
Dorchester County Council has given initial approval to incentives that would reduce Saxum’s assessed property tax rate for the Ridgeville facility to 6 percent from the 10.5 percent normally charged to industrial sites. The agreement would also refund 25 percent of the company’s tax payments over a 10-year period to help pay for infrastructure and equipment costs. The council is expected to give final approve to the incentives at its June 6 meeting.
Refrigerated cargo at the Port of Charleston has more than doubled in recent years, with growth driven by the Southeast’s booming population and changes in grocery consumption. A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows there were nearly 151 million pounds of beef and 334.6 million pounds of chicken in cold-storage warehouses in the region — increases of 7.4 percent and 20 percent, respectively.
Within the past year, cold-storage leader Lineage Logistics spent $34 million on an expansion of its North Charleston warehouse, and developer RealtyLink Investments announced plans for a temperature-controlled warehouse at the Camp Hall Commerce Park off Interstate 26 in Berkeley County. Those warehouses join an existing Agro Merchants Group cold-storage facility in Summerville.
The SPA also has invested $73 million to boost its capacity for cold-storage cargo, including expanding its refrigerated rack and plugs and creating a dedicated cold-storage service area at the Wando Welch Terminal in Mount Pleasant.
Privately held Saxum specializes in cold-storage facilities and multifamily developments, with a $2 billion portfolio of more than 2.6 million square feet of warehouses and 1,400 rental units. The Ridgeville facility would be Saxum’s first development in South Carolina, according to the company’s website.
