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 Ridgeville:
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.

Ridgeville farm offers an alternative to buying produce at the grocery store

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – While inflation is impacting what you pay for food at the grocery store, a local farmer is making some changes to deal with economic realities.

Hickory Bluff Berry Farms for years has offered a chance to pick your own strawberries. But you’ll soon have the chance to pick other produce in an effort to help you – and them – save money and time.

Lowcountry farmer Michael Parker listed off many of the items grown at the farm in Ridgeville.

“We grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries – we grow a large variety of produce. We do green zucchini, golden zucchini, Zephyr squash; we grow lots of tomatoes and okra,” he said.

Since opening in 2008, they had strawberries available for U-Pick; but because it has become harder and harder to find people to help harvest their produce, they decided to make a change.

“We’ve actually implemented something this year to try and help with that. With the cost of labor going up and the lack of labor being able to help us, we’ve had to adjust,” Parker explained.

They have a new business model moving forward.

“Most of the produce that we generally pick and sell to large distributors, we’re not picking now till you pick and that allows the everyday person to bring the kids out or come out and select what they want at a fraction of the cost at the store or even here at the stand.”

You can pick the produce, not including the berries, for just a flat rate of $1.50 per pound.

“I like all of our produce; it’s $1.50 a pound. People [can] dig their own potatoes, pick their squash, go pick their own cucumbers.”

Parker went on to say, “We’re trying to shave cost as much as we can. We’ve changed the way that we farm- we’re not spraying the toxic pesticides and chemicals and stuff as much anymore because it costs so much to get it.”

Parker said they are trying their best as farmers to feed as many people as they can at an affordable price.

The Hickory Bluff Berry Farms is open Monday through Saturday from 9 AM until 5 PM. They may open Friday nights from time to time.

Walmart Opens South Carolina Import Distribution Center

Walmart has opened a $220 million import distribution center in Ridgeville, S.C. The April 22 grand-opening event featured remarks from South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and Mike Gray, Walmart’s SVP supply chain of operations, along with a congratulatory video from John Furner, president and CEO of Walmart, and ended with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.“Our team of more than 980 associates from Dorchester County and the surrounding communities are excited to officially open the doors to our new import distribution ...

Walmart has opened a $220 million import distribution center in Ridgeville, S.C. The April 22 grand-opening event featured remarks from South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and Mike Gray, Walmart’s SVP supply chain of operations, along with a congratulatory video from John Furner, president and CEO of Walmart, and ended with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Our team of more than 980 associates from Dorchester County and the surrounding communities are excited to officially open the doors to our new import distribution center,” said Jeff Holzbauer, general manager of the new facility, at the event. “South Carolina is home to some of the country’s most convenient and efficient modes of transportation, including the Port of Charleston and Interstates 26 and 95. Being a member of this community means having the advantage of the region’s existing infrastructure as well as a pool of experienced associates familiar with it. Cutting this ribbon today signifies our commitment to that community.”

“Walmart has been a long-time partner of South Carolina, and as years have passed, they have continued to double down on their commitment to our people and reinvest in our state,” noted McMaster. “Walmart hasn’t only created thousands of jobs in our state – it has become an integral part of the communities in which it operates. Today’s celebration is the result of our state working hard to be the ideal place to do business and a company recognizing the benefit of having our incredibly skilled workforce and premier ports system in its backyard.”

Dorchester County was chosen as the location for the facility because of South Carolina’s business-friendly environment and the county’s proximity to the nearby deep-water Port of Charleston. The new import distribution center will store and sort imported goods that arrive through Charleston – the country’s eighth-largest port – for delivery to 850 regional Walmart and Sam’s Club locations across the Southeast. Once fully up and running, the facility is expected to boost local port volumes by about 5%.

“Walmart is the recognized leader in supply chain innovation and performance,” observed SC Ports CEO Jim Newsome. “Having this world-class company choose our market for their seventh import distribution center is the ultimate vote of confidence in SC Ports and in South Carolina, further solidifying SC Ports as a leader in retail distribution. The strategic investments we have made in port infrastructure enable SC Ports to support global retailers’ supply chains. We are thrilled to partner with Walmart to further their growth and impact for years to come.”

The company also reportedly operates import distribution centers in Alabama, Georgia, Texas and Virginia, among other locations.

“We know our customers count on us for a broad assortment, and this new import distribution center will give us expanded access to seaports, in turn allowing us to deliver a wide selection of merchandise from around the globe,” said Mike Gray, SVP supply chain operations at Walmart. “We also strive to be a store of the community and are proud of how we’ve been able to leverage our investments in supply chain to create economic opportunity and jobs for the Dorchester County area.”

To bolster its supply chain network, the company is building and upgrading distribution and fulfillment centers in various U.S. and Canadian locations.

During the grand-opening event, Holzbauer revealed that the new facility is well on its way to exceeding its initial hiring goal of 1,000. Working with the Department of Commerce, Walmart expects to soon employ more than 1,300 local full-time associates at the facility. The company celebrated its commitment to the community with a contribution of $10,000 to Going Places, an area nonprofit organization that gives bicycles to kids in need.

Located at 1030 Timothy Creek Road, the 3 million-square-foot facility – equivalent in size to 52 football fields – is Walmart’s first import distribution center in the state of South Carolina to leverage the port.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart operates approximately 10,500 stores under 46 banners in 24 countries, and e-commerce websites, employing 2.2 million-plus associates worldwide. Walmart U.S. is No. 1 on The PG 100, Progressive Grocer’s 2021 list of the top food and consumables retailers in North America. The company operates 122 retail units and employs more than 35,000 associates in South Carolina.

Walmart’s new Ridgeville distribution center brings over 1,000 jobs

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - Walmart’s $220 million-dollar international distribution center in Ridgeville is now open for business.

Officials from Dorchester County and Gov. Henry McMaster spoke at the grand opening on Friday.

“This is just one more sign of our great prosperity that’s going to keep on going,” McMaster says. “This is one of the three largest such distribution centers in the world.”

So far, Walmart has hired over 900 associates and they are looking to hire a total of 1,300 full-time employees. The Walmart distribution center is expected to increase the Port of Charleston’s volume by 5 percent, bringing them more jobs as well.

Jeffrey Holzbauer, General Manager of Imports with Walmart says this center will have a huge impact on Dorchester County. Not only for the number of jobs they are bringing but the pay rate as well.

Along with the distribution center, there are 122 retail stores in the state. In total, Walmart employs over 30,000 associates in South Carolina.

This will be the 5th distribution facility in the state, and its impact will reach farther than South Carolina. The center will supply 850 Walmart and Sam’s Club stores across the southeast.

Holzbauer says over the past few years keeping shelves in stores stocked has been an issue. The distribution center’s main purpose is to limit situations like that happening by making sure the right stores have the right products at the right time.

“Trailers come in from the port, folks then unload them,” Holzbauer says. “They go to a storage rack until a store is running low on inventory. Then we send associates to pick that product, take it to the ship dock, and put it in containers that’s destined for a regional distribution center.”

The town of Ridgeville was chosen for the distribution center for a few reasons. It’s strategically located relatively close to the port of Charleston. Holzbauer says there were a lot of qualified associates in the area, and there’s access to major transportation channels to get their products to their stores as fast as possible.

South Carolina Ports Authority President and CEO Jim Newsome says this building could be the tip of the iceberg for a county focused on business.

“We own this whole industrial campus, except we granted this to Walmart, so we’re working on other projects out here,” Newsome says. “I think there’s a number of distribution projects that can come here because of the location between I-26 and I-95.”

'Not giving up': Pineville community searching for beloved mother, substitute teacher

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.

Ruth Jenkins is approximately 5'4" and has black hair and brown eyes.

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. (Provided)

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.

Big Afternoon Cull Helps Rivet Take Lead At Bassmaster Open On Sam Rayburn

October 20, 2022

JASPER, Texas — Tyler Rivet already has secured spots in next year’s Bassmaster Elite Series and the 2023 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic.

But Thursday, on Day 1 of the St. Croix Bassmaster Central Open at Sam Rayburn presented by Mossy Oak Fishing, Rivet fished like he needed to win to reach those lofty goals.

Rivet, a 28-year-old Elite Series pro from Raceland, La., caught a five-bass limit that weighed 20 pounds, 14 ounces. That gave him the early lead in the final Central Open of the season, whose winner will lock up a spot in the Classic scheduled for March 24-26 on the Tennessee River in Knoxville.

Rivet was a bit surprised at his good fortune on Day 1, considering he didn’t find anything spectacular during practice and never really established a pattern on Thursday. He chose instead to cover large swaths of the 114,000-acre reservoir and rely on his electronics to pinpoint the best bass.

The strategy, or lack thereof, was effective. It also might have been inevitable, given Rayburn is almost 6 feet below pool, which made fishing different — if not difficult — for many anglers on Day 1.

“It’s shallow out there,” Rivet said. “Everything is matted over, but you really can’t punch through the grass. So, I got away from the grass today … I just covered water and LiveScoped all day.”

Rivet said slack winds and bright sunshine made for ideal conditions to scope fish. He leaned on finesse fishing most of the day, though his largest bass (6-13) came on a jerkbait at about 1:30 p.m.

“I was LiveScoping two little sticks,” he said. “I didn’t even see it. He came out of nowhere and ate it. I had one small one left that I needed to cull, so that big one let me pick up about a pound and a half.”

Rivet knows that because his catch on Thursday came from random places and on random lures, his fortune could quickly change on Friday. Still, he’s positioned himself for a solid showing, much like this year on the Elites, where he finished 25th in the Progressive Insurance Bassmaster Angler of the Year standings. That showing cemented his spots on next year’s Elite circuit and the 2023 Classic.

“Hopefully I can go out there and hammer them again tomorrow,” he said.

A total of 372 competitors are in this week’s derby — 188 in the angler division and 184 more on the co-angler side. They are fishing for part of a $312,000 total cash purse that will be divided among the Top 40 anglers in each division, including $43,867 to the winning angler and $20,854 to the top co-angler.

Kyle Austin, of Ridgeville, S.C., is second in the angler field with a limit weighing 20-2, including a 7-12 largemouth which leads Phoenix Boats Big Bass honors. Garrett Paquette, of Canton, Mich., is third with 19-8.

In addition to the winner earning a spot in the 2023 Classic, six spots in the 2023 Bassmaster Elite Series will be decided by the end of this tournament — three going to the anglers who finish atop the Central Open standings and three more to anglers placing highest in this year’s overall Bassmaster Opens points standings. This is the ninth and final Open of the year, with earlier Central Open stops at the Red River in Bossier City, La., and Ross Barnett Reservoir in Ridgeland, Miss.

Various possibilities remain as to which anglers get berths and how, which keeps the pressure on more than a few of the competitors at Rayburn.

In the co-angler field, Rondell Joseph, of Manvel, Texas, took the Day 1 lead with a three-bass limit weighing 9-5. Allen Heston, of Pittsburg, Texas, is second with 8-15 and Ross Bryant, of Alexandria, La., is third with 8-9.

Heston’s 6-2 was the heavy bass among co-anglers Thursday.

Co-anglers will fish again Friday with a champion being crowned after the Day 2 weigh-in. The Top 10 in the angler field will advance to fish for the tournament title on Saturday.

Day 2 begins Friday with a 7:15 a.m. CT takeoff from Umphrey Family Pavilion in Brookeland, Texas. Weigh-in is scheduled for 3:15 p.m.

Full coverage of the tournament can be found on Bassmaster.com and live coverage of Championship Saturday will be available on FS1 beginning at 7 a.m. CT.

The Jasper-Lake Sam Rayburn Chamber of Commerce is hosting this week’s events.
