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.

MILLVILLE — After a somewhat lackluster outing in the first round of the 4A state football playoffs, the Riverhawks were clicking on both sides of the ball Friday night in the quarterfinals.

Ridgeline got its offense going, and the defense came through once again with some big turnovers. The defending state champions Riverhawks are headed to the semifinals after a 41-20 victory against Snow Canyon.

“We worked hard this past week,” Ridgeline head coach Travis Cox said. “We stuck with our guys and everyone came together and executed very well. I was really happy to see them score some points and have some fun. Now is the best time to be going, and we are rolling right now.”

The Riverhawk defense came up with four turnovers, while their offensive brothers did not lose the ball. The three fumble recoveries and interception were turned into 20 points by the offense — two touchdowns and two field goals.

“The last couple of weeks we have been working like a well-oiled machine,” Ridgeline defensive lineman Tanner Paskett said of the defense. “We have been practicing super hard. We’ve been super locked in at practice. I love every kid on my team. They are all just good kids, do their part and I trust them.”

The fouth-seeded Riverhawks (8-4) never trailed in the game and beat the fifth-seeded Warriors (7-4) for the third time in the last two years. The teams earlier this season with Ridgeline winning in St. George, 24-8, and they also met last year with the Riverhawks soaring to a 42-7 victory.

“We had these guys figured out since last season,” Ridgeline receiver Jackson Olsen said. “We beat them in St. George in week three, so we knew what to expect. We knew what they were going to do.”

On offense, the Riverhawks were balanced in gaining 372 yards of total offense. Nate Dahle completed 15 of 23 pass attempts for 210 yards and a touchdown. The signal caller rushed for 35 yards on eight carries and scored three times with his feet.

“We had some good game planning,” said Olsen, who caught nine passes for 138 yards. “... I feel a lot better out there. Next week will be even better. ... Nate is an incredible leader for how young he is. He is poised and makes the right reads.”

Ridgeline finished with 162 yards on the ground on 44 carries. JT White led the rushing attack with 73 yards on 14 carries and a score. Will Rippstein rushed for 48 yards on 17 carries.

Snow Canyon finished with 217 yards of total offense, with 167 of those coming through the air. Warrior quarterback Hunter Johnson passed for 167 yards on 18 of 27 attempts with an interception and led the team in rushing with 34 yards on 12 carries. Running back Teagan Hugh scored two TDs on the ground and led the team in receiving with nine catches for 77 yards.

“It was super awesome that the defense could get those takeaways, and the offense then made something of them,” Paskett said.

The game began with several big momentum swings. Will Warner took the opening kickoff and returned it 90 yards for an apparent Warrior TD. However, a flag was thrown on the return, and it came back.

On the first play from scrimmage for Snow Canyon, Johnson bobbled a snap that turned into a fumble. Ridgeline’s Owen Munk recovered at the Warrior 12-yard line.

Three plays later White was scoring off left tackle from a yard out, giving the hosts a 7-0 lead.

“They (Warriors) were rolling coming into this thing,” Cox said. “We thought if we could jump on them early, we could take that momentum.”

Warner did himself even better on the next return opportunity. He took the ensuing kickoff and went 93 yards to paydirt. Less than two minutes into the contest, it was 7-7.

Ridgeline converted three third downs, including a third-and-16, in marching 80 yards in 13 plays. Dahle found wide receiver Hunter Knighton all alone for a 19-yard TD strike.

The Riverhawks ended the opening quarter with Noah Kekauoha nearly intercepting a pass, then breaking up a pass. White made a solid tackle when the Warriors went for it on fourth down on their own 33.

Dahle hooked up with Olsen for a 40-yard gain on third-and-6, then scored his first rushing TD of the night from two yards out to give the Riverhawks a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter.

“I don’t even know what happened,” Paskett said. “I was getting off the block and some spin-around thing and I’m on my butt with the ball in my hands. I was then, offense, go get it done.”

The offense drove 46 yards in six plays. Dahle scored a from a yard out as Ridgeline took a 28-7 lead midway through the second quarter.

Hugh scored his first TD from four yards out to pull the Warriors within 28-14 at halftime.

The Riverhawks began the second half by getting the ball and driving 81 yards in 12 plays to paydirt. Dahle scored from a yard out on a fourth-and-goal play to give the hosts a 35-14 lead.

“You don’t want to run your quarterback a whole lot, but at this point in the season you kind of empty it (playbook) all out,” Cox said. “We wanted to get him running a little more. That helped things early on.”

Kekauoha came up with a fumble on the next Warrior offensive play. Aaron Young would cash in on that turnover with a 27-yard field goal.

A short kickoff and two penalties of the 15-yard variety on Ridgeline helped give Snow Canyon great field position. The Warriors only had to go 28 yards and did so in seven plays with Hugh scoring from a yard out.

Munk picked off a pass and returned it 25 yards to the Snow Canyon 15 to set up the final points of the game. Young booted a 25-yard field goal with 5:06 to play.

“The defense was really, really good tonight,” Cox said. “Other than one drive, they played lights out. Turnovers are the name of the game. They create turnovers because of effort. Tanner Paskett played so hard tonight.”

Ridgeline has never lost a home playoff game (8-0). The Riverhawks will now play next Saturday at Southern Utah University in Cedar City. They will face Crimson Cliffs, who beat Cedar 33-14, with a berth to the state championship game on the line.

“I have full faith in my team,” Paskett said. “I think we will go practice hard and get it done.”

George Rogers remains one of the greatest USC players of all time

When asked about his proudest moment thus far, the answer was simple: "To be a Gamecock."

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Gamecocks legend George Rogers left it all on the football field, and then some, in his career. His many accolades are proof of that.

And even though he retired from the NFL in the 1980s, football players are still trying to emulate his career, which started in his hometown of Duluth, Georgia in 1958.

With support from his aunt, Othella Rogers, he worked incredibly hard at his craft, hauling himself up from humble beginnings to a football scholarship at the University of South Carolina.

During his time at USC, Rogers set the standard for Gamecock running backs with a still-record 5,204 rushing yards at the school.

Rogers though, said it wasn't all about him, and credited his success on the field to his offensive line. "I had good people to play in front of me," he explained. "You often can only do as good as your offensive line. At the University of South Carolina, I had a pretty good offensive line. I said if you guys can block it, I can run it, and that is how it was."

During the 1980 season, Rogers won the Heisman Trophy after leading the nation in rushing while topping the 100-yard mark in every game. He remains the Gamecocks' only Heisman winner.

The New Orleans Saints then drafted Rogers with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1981 NFL Draft.

In the pros, he led the NFL in rushing his rookie season with 1,674 yards and 13 touchdowns. His dominance on the field earned him the honor of NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, first-team All-Pro honors, and a Pro Bowl berth.

In 1985, he took his talents to the team now known as the Washington Commanders. Rogers helped lead them to a Super Bowl Championship in 1988.

Due to nagging injuries, Rogers would step away from the game, accumulating 7,176 rushing yards and 54 touchdowns in the NFL. "I played for seven years, and I enjoyed playing," Rogers said. "I started out with the New Orleans Saints and ended up with Washington, and I got a Super Bowl ring. So what else can I do?"

While successes mark his life, he also acknowledges that he faced some personal obstacles. "You're gonna stumble, some people do, and I have," he said. " People in South Carolina, they forgive you, but they don't forget. You know, I made mistakes. But the thing about it is, you've got to push through it. I'm a different, changed man in a better way."

Rogers said part of that change is thanks to being among a positive community, which includes his wife, Brenda, and seven children.

"I have a nice, wonderful wife that does everything for me," he boasted. "I cannot complain."

Even in retirement, the accolades continued to pour in. In 1997, Rogers was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. He is also in the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame and the Georgia Hall of Fame.

In 2015, he was honored with a statue outside of Williams-Brice Stadium, the first Gamecock athlete to receive that honor.

"For my family, for everybody, Gamecocks, it's great," said Rogers. "It'll be here a lot longer than I will (laughs)."

Even though Rogers is not hustling on the field, he is using his talents to help South Carolina students.

To ensure all teenagers have an opportunity at higher education, Rogers has dedicated part of his retirement to creating and running the George Rogers Foundation of the Carolinas. The foundation provides financial assistance to first-generation college students and financially supports local non-profit organizations, including Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the Midlands, Special Olympics, and Habitat for Humanity.

When he is not working to raise money for his foundation or cheering on the Gamecocks at a sporting event, Rogers also likes to spend his time fishing. "I don't care what time it is," Rogers joked. "I go up there (Greenwood), and I sit for hours."

And after all these years, pride in school and program remains top of mind. When asked about his proudest moment thus far, the answer was simple: "To be a Gamecock."

Small town hospitality and historic charm are hallmarks of St. George the county seat of Dorchester County. Originally known as George’s Station along the South Carolina Railroad, the Town of St. George was incorporated in January 1875.

Before the construction of Interstates 26 and 95, St. George was a popular stop for tourists traveling to Florida by way of U.S. Highway 15. Today, the Town of St. George is easily accessible from the interstate.

Dive deep into the town’s local history at The Heritage Museum, located in the former County Courthouse at 101 Ridge St. A nonprofit formed in 2014, the Dorchester County Archives & History Center is dedicated to preserving the past for future generations. The organization is working to digitize more than 100,000 documents for researchers. Plus, a detailed photo collection of the Lowcountry donated by Brandon Coffey is available to view at the museum. Visit Tuesday through Saturday; tickets are $5 each for adults.

Appleby’s Methodist Church is a one-story wooden Methodist church built between 1840 and 1850. Visit today to see how the church looked in the mid-1800s – an example of Greek Revival meeting house style – with two rows of pews thought to be the originals. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on Feb. 14, 1978.

Indian Field Camp Ground is a rustic and simple Methodist campground still in use today. It was built in 1848 with 99 wooden cabins that form a circle around a large wooden tabernacle and preaching area. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 30, 1973.

Another of the area’s Methodist camps is Shady Grove, a place of worship created by former slaves in 1870. The campground consisted of rustic cabins – known as "tents – that have been passed down from generation to generation. Fire destroyed the original tents in the late 1950s. Even though they were replaced, many of those tents burned in two more fires. Much of the camp was rebuilt in the early 1990s. Families continue to gather each October for camp meeting of fellowship and worship.

There are also two additional Methodist campgrounds in the surrounding area, St. Paul and Cypress, making this part of the county a time capsule for long-standing religious traditions.

Don’t miss the historic Koger-Murray-Carroll-House, so named in honor of its past owners. Dating back to at least 1775, was once an important stagecoach stop between inland settlements and Charleston. The exact construction date remains unknown, but it's thought to be the oldest house in Dorchester County.

Located in the heart of St. George is the Klauber Building. Built in 1894, it was first a mercantile serving a community bustling with railroad commerce. Today, the building houses an area chamber of commerce, visitor center and town museum. It’s open each weekday.

The Klauber also hosts the weekly St. George Farmers Market. Stop by from 3-6 p.m. each Thursday through Oct. 27 for local farm fresh produce, foods, art, culture and music.

Also situated in the center of St. George at 206 Parler Avenue is the Lourie Theatre, built in the 1920s to show silent movies. In the early 1980s, the theatre closed, and the building began to deteriorate. Several years later, a group of dedicated community members banded together to restore the theatre – now a vibrant performing arts center for the town.

Constructed in 1925, the Rosenwald School was a six-teacher school created by educator Booker T. Washington and the philanthropic president of Sears & Roebuck, Julius Rosenwald. The two men began a program to construction schools for African-American children. They completed 5,400 schools in states around the South. Thousands of children attended these schools between 1912 and the late 1950s when schools became integrated. In 2014, the school, located at 205 Ann Street, was given in trust to the Town of St. George and work began on the restoration and preservation of the building.
