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 St. George:
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.

Meet the do-everything facility managers behind Riverhounds SC's rise to prominence

There is no “average’ day at the office for George Zech and Zack Wisniewski.

As a full-time team of just two, the facilities managers for Riverhounds SC have to do a little bit of everything to keep Highmark Stadium and the team’s new training facility in Coraopolis running smoothly.

One day, that can mean prepping the nine-year old soccer stadium for an important match. The next it can mean welcoming guests for a corporate event. Or heading out to the Montour Junction Sports Complex to help as acting construction workers.

That last scenario actually unfolded last winter, while Highmark was sitting dormant for the season and there was work to do at the facility the team hopes will help its growth as a member of the second-division USL Championship.

“Zack and I were out there in the dead of winter pretty much every day doing fairly simple tasks because we’re not trained construction workers,” Zech told the Post-Gazette in an interview earlier this month. “But we were out there in the cold, and we were building temporary windows and things of that nature. So that changed our schedule entirely during the winter.”

That one-off situation is emblematic of the versatility that’s made both men essential to the Riverhounds’ operations.

Both started their respective tenures with the team humbly as seasonal interns who supported the full-time staff back in the summer of 2018. And it didn’t take long for them to climb the ranks, as they were promoted to full-time staff by the middle of the 2019 campaign.

Since then, they’ve run point on pretty much every operation the facility has undertaken and shown they can be good at a wide array of different but very important jobs.

Primarily, that means maintenance and prep work. Making sure nets are tightened before games and ensuring the stadium is clear of trash after them. Keeping equipment like sideline flags in tip-top shape. Supplying the teams with towels and water bottles. And Wisniewski’s personal favorite, grooming the artificial playing surface so that it’s free of debris and looks its best when players step on it for training or a game.

“That’s roughly about a two-hour process,” Wisniewski said. “We have a LitterKat [turf sweeper] I drive around the field and it helps pick up fibers and stuff. Basically it makes the field look prettier than it was right before I even did it. It picks up garbage and stuff. That saves a couple man hours for me, George and our crew to walk the field.”

And saving time is pretty much the name of the game, because there’s a lot of work to do and not a ton of hands to do it.

Zech and Wisniewski are the facilities staff’s only full-time members, which means responsibility for the daily check list of tasks rests with them. Completing it means doing work themselves, yes, but also delegating effectively to part-time staff and interns who support them.

It’s an area where Zech has grown a lot since being an intern himself. And while this is mostly a manual labor job, he’s found that the interpersonal elements of the gig are some of his favorite.

“It’s so rewarding to just meet all of these people,” Zech said. “We have four-plus interns coming through every year, so that’s four people right off the bat that you get to interact with. I think all of our interns, I’ve pretty much followed where they’ve gone from here, and I think that part’s pretty rewarding, just seeing that we kind of played a small role in their career development.”

The connections go beyond the support staff, too. Whenever vendors are on the property for one reason or another, it’s Zech and Wisniewski who get to know them and make sure they have everything they need.

When VIPs are in the building, the duo works to make sure they’ve comfortable, as they did for former Pitt star and current Los Angeles Rams All-Pro Aaron Donald last year.

And when other team staffs need a hand, whether it’s coach Bob Lilley or someone in the front office, they do their best to step in and help. Lilley and assistant Dan Visser, in particular, have come to appreciate what they bring to the club as their next-door neighbors in the Highmark Stadium offices.

“There’s a lot that goes into running a successful pro club, and while the players and coaches get a lot of the credit, it wouldn’t be possible without individuals taking care of details behind the scenes,” Visser said. “George, Zack and their crew do a great job keeping things running smoothly — doing laundry, helping with gear, cleaning the locker room, moving furniture, prepping the field and being the go-to guys when something needs to be done, but it’s not really anybody’s job. They don’t get enough credit for what they do, and I’m happy Riverhounds fans are getting a glimpse into what they mean to this organization.”

In short, they’re dependable, which is why they’re some of the longest-tenured employees on staff already, despite only a little over four years on the job.

Since they started with the team, much of the front office has turned over, as has staff in areas like ticket sales and social media.

That’s made Zech and Wisniewski the constants who function as team historians others can turn to for advice about how the team has handled different situations in the past.

Not bad for a couple of guys from the East End and Monroeville, respectively, who weren’t necessarily big soccer fans before but who’ve fallen in love with the sport as the team’s enjoyed a lot of success during their tenures.

Wisniewski said he didn’t even know Pittsburgh had a pro soccer team before he accepted his internship back in 2018. Since then, though, the team has made the playoffs in each of the past four campaigns, a franchise-best streak.

And even though they may not be scoring the goals or making the saves themselves, the two are thankful to be part of a winning culture that means more to them each year.

“Maybe in our first year or two, it didn’t mean quite as much,” Zech said. “But being here for so long, we’re rooting for the team, yeah, but we’re also rooting for the people who’ve been around for so long.

“It’s nice to see we’re playing a small part in that. We do play some part, and so it’s cool to see them do well and know that we’re a little part of that.”

ST. GEORGE — Jordan Werner and Cutler Labrum are going from Utah to South Carolina to catch some bass.

And chase some of their dreams along the way.

The duo will represent Red Rock Bass at the 2022 Abu Garcia Bassmaster High School National Championship at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina Aug. 11-13.

“I’m pumped. It’s gonna be awesome,” Labrum said. “I’m nervous and excited all at the same time. I definitely think we can win if we put our heads in it and just grind out there.”

The occasion marks the first time since 2014 that Utah will send fishermen to compete in the high school national championship.

“It’s awesome to represent the place you’ve lived your whole life in a place you’ve never been to,” Werner said. “I’m looking forward to winning. Me and Cutler are about just as good as everybody else.”

The duo earned the qualification points necessary to go to South Carolina over the course of 10 bass fishing tournaments staged at Sand Hollow, Gunlock Reservoir and Quail Reservoir. They finished in the overall top two in every tournament.

“They really handled a lot of adversity,” Red Rocks Bass coach and boat captain Clif Gallagher said. “They did a really good job of learning how to fish together.”

Gallagher started the club four years ago when he encountered two kids fishing in a pond on a golf course and it inspired him.

“Fishing is universal,” he said. “Anyone at all can take a fishing pole to a river or a lake, throw in a line and make friends. Everyone fishes- men, women, children, handicapped, all ages, all kinds of people. It’s the universal language.”

Red Rock Bass is about more than just fishing.

“It’s good for the community, I really believe that,” Gallagher said. “It gives these kids something to do, gets them outside and off their phones. They learn about teamwork and it’s open to all levels and abilities.”

As captain of the boat (named “The Linda K” after his mother), Gallagher is tasked with driving the pair around Lake Hartwell as they seek the best holes. He can also offer advice on fishing techniques and patterns.

Up to 275 clubs and schools are expected to compete in the national championship. Gallagher said that most high schools in the South have their own sanctioned fishing teams like any other sport, but in other regions around the country, high-schoolers compete on club fishing teams.

“There will be colleges there; scholarships are available,” Gallagher said. “And there’s prizes to compete for as well.”

Werner attends Hurricane High School. A friend told his dad about Red Rock Bass and they went to check it out.

“And I got hooked, first meeting of the year,” Werner said. “I fished the first tournament and it has just gone from there.”

He added that he fishes tournaments with his dad as well and he hopes to fish professionally someday.

Labrum goes to Crimson Cliffs High School and had an early start in the water like his partner.

“I’ve grown up fishing with my dad. We’ve just always been around it,” Labrum said. “Mostly trout fishing when I was growing up but the past four or five years I’ve gotten into largemouth and bass fishing in general.”

He went on to say that he wants to turn pro someday as well, but he also has hopes that he can go to college and fish too.

In the meantime, the anglers will prepare to represent Utah at the national championship. Anyone interested in helping Labrum and Werner get to South Carolina can look up their GoFundMe project.

Georgetown is a small town situated in Georgetown County in the Lowcountry region of the US State of South Carolina. Georgetown serves as the state’s second-largest seaport and is located on a coastal estuary named Winyah Bay at the meeting point of the Black River, Waccamaw River, Great Pee Dee River, and Sampit Rivers. The state’s third-oldest town, Georgetown, is well-known for its picturesque waterfront parks, rich history, scenic Harborwalk, and award-winning restaurants.

Geography And Climate Of Georgetown

Georgetown covers a total area of 19.5 sq. km, of which 17.9 sq. km is occupied by land, and 1.6 sq. km is covered by water. Several important highways such as U.S. Route 521, U.S. Route 17, U.S. Route 701, and U.S. Route 17 Alternate meet at the heart of the town. Georgetown is located approximately 132km from Sumter, 97km from Charleston, 58km from Conway, 55km from Myrtle Beach, and 51km from Jamestown.

According to Koppen Climate Classification, Georgetown experiences a humid subtropical climate with severely hot and wet summers and short, cold winters. July is the year’s hottest month, with an average high of 31.6°C and a low of 21.6°C. January is the year’s coldest month, with an average low of 3.3°C and a high of 13.8°C. Georgetown receives an average precipitation of 52.4 inches per year. The town also receives 0.6 inches of average snowfall.

Brief History Of Georgetown

An expedition led by the Spanish explorer Lucas Vazquez de Ayllon established a colony named “San Miguel de Guadalupe” in 1526 on the Waccamaw Neck peninsula. The colony was North America’s first European settlement that had enslaved Africans. However, the colony failed to prosper and was eventually abandoned due to the revolt of the enslaved people and a fever epidemic. In the 1720s, the present-day Georgetown County was settled by the English colonists. The first parish named Prince George’s, Winyah Parish, was established the following year. In 1729, the town plan was laid out by Elisha Screven and was developed following the “four-by-eight block grid.” During the American Revolutionary War, military officer Francis Marion led several guerrilla actions in the town’s vicinity. Over the years, as Georgetown County prospered, many elegant plantation mansions with sprawling lawns, tea gardens, and allees of live oaks were built.

The Population And Economy Of Georgetown

As per the latest US Census, Georgetown has a population of 8,866 inhabitants, which is quite less than the 2010 census, which recorded that the town had a population of 9,163 inhabitants. The town’s largest ethnic groups include Non-Hispanic White at 46.5%, African American at 46.2%, Two or more races at 5.7%, Other races at 0.857%, and Hispanic Black at 0.316%.

The median household income in Georgetown was $32,593, whereas its median property value was $163,300. The economy of Georgetown employs 3,410 people in various industries, including Retail Trade, Construction, Health Care & Social Assistance, Transportation & Warehousing, and Finance & Insurance.

Attractions In Georgetown

Prince George Winyah Church is one of South Carolina’s oldest continuous congregations. This Anglican Church building is also among the state’s oldest churches that are still in service. Built with English red bricks using the native oyster shell mortar, the church’s first service was held in August 1747. The British troops occupied the church during the American Revolutionary War.

The Hopsewee Plantation served as the residence of one of Georgetown’s most vocal planters, Thomas Lynch Jr., who was one of the signatories of the United States Declaration of Independence. The plantation was built approximately 13 miles south of the town on the North Santee River. Hopsewee remains open to the public for tours of the plantation and to know more about Thomas Lynch Jr.

Also referred to as the Rice Museum, the Old Market Building is a historic market building situated in Georgetown. Built in a Classical Revival architectural style in 1832-1835, the temple-form building has served various purposes, including an open-air market, jail, town hall, and a slave market.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD)- Hot dog lovers got a chance to “ketchup” with the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile as it made its way through the Lowcountry this week.

The iconic hot dog on wheels, driven by Hotdoggers “Corndog Clara” and “Sizzlin’ Susie,” stopped by Flying J locations in St. George and Summerville on Wednesday, just in time for National Hot Dog Day.

The purpose of the visits, according to Clara, is to “spread smiles and raise brand awareness.”

But it’s not it’s not just smiles that were handed out. Each person who visited also got to walk away with a famous item, the ‘Wiener Whistle.’

“They’re these iconic collector’s items that we’ve been passing out since the 1950s that you can only get in front of the Wienermobile,” she said.

The original concept of a traveling frankfurter was created by Oscar Mayer’s nephew in 1936 with the current, retro-outfitted version hitting the streets in 1988. But even with style changes along the way, the Wienermobile has been wowing visitors of all ages for nearly 90 years.

“We were spreading smiling sparkles back then and we’re still doing it today,” Ed Roland, head of the Wienermobile program said. “The Wienermobile is priceless and it makes memories for kids 8 to 80.”

The 27-foot-long, 11-foot-tall, 14,500-pound averages about 500 miles a week on the road aClara said, surprisingly, it is not as difficult to drive as it seems.

“Once you get used to it,” she laughed. “We like to say it can haul buns.”

There are six Wienermobiles in the country, driven by two-person teams. That means out of thousands of applicants only a handful are selected for the coveted Hotdogger position.

“It was a two-month-long interview process,” Clara said. “Once we got the position, it was two weeks of training called ‘Hotdog High’ and then they sent us off on the hotdog highway.”

While in South Carolina, the Wienermobile also made stops in Goose Creek and Downtown Charleston.

Can’t wait to “meat” the Hotdoggers? Track the Wienermobile!
