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 Summerville:
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.

Summerville considers parking garage charges

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – Driving up to the parking garage in Downtown Summerville, you’ll see the word ‘free’ posted in several places.

A convenient place to park, near Summerville’s shops and restaurants, has been free since it was built in 2008.

“It is super convenient,” said one Summerville man. “I’m going right across the street to the shops here, and it’s a convenient place to park for it.”

But an idea being discussed among town leaders could mean patrons have to pay to park.

“The idea is just to charge for the garage, people who use the garage, just to recoup some of that money so the garage is self-sufficient and pays for itself,” said Russ Cornette, the Public Works Director for the Town of Summerville.

Since 2014, an average of $96,000 per year have been spent on maintenance, upkeep, and upgrades of the garage. Currently, that money is coming from the town and out of taxpayers’ pockets.

“Since 2014 we’ve invested about $770,000,” said Cornette.

He says maintenance gets more expensive as the years go on.

“The older a building gets, the more it’s going to cost the town, the taxpayers of the town. Many of the people who use this garage are non-residents. So it would be great to have the garage pay for itself from non-residents.”

When the garage was built, technology including ticket stations and a place for drop gates were installed just in case the town decided to start charging in the future.

“Council, at the time, decided it would be best not to charge people to park. But, at the time, they also decided to install some of the infrastructures to be able to charge in the future.”

Discussions have already started among stakeholders and the town, and more conversations will happen in the coming weeks and months. Cornette says the feedback he’s received so far has been mostly negative, but that a large portion of people who park in the garage are tourists and visitors.

“A lot of people probably that don’t live in Summerville also probably park here when there are events and Third Thursdays and things like that so is it good or bad…? I think there’s a balance that has to be struck between taking care of things and using them,” said a Summerville resident.

No decisions have been made yet, and the idea may not be implemented.

That decision is up to the town council.

New DD2 superintendent leads school board workshop

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) — Dorchester County School District Two’s (DD2) new superintendent, Dr. Shane Robbins, hosted a workshop Friday with the district’s board of trustees to set goals for the upcoming school year.

The workshop agenda included reviewing the expectations of the school board and setting goals for the upcoming year.

“This is the first time they’ve ever gone through a superintendent search process in 22 years, and so it’s important for us to start off on the right foot,” Robbins said.

Robbins is replacing former DD2 superintendent Joseph Pye — who spent 52 years serving the district — after a strenuous search for a new superintendent.

School board leaders said Robbins has been meeting local stakeholders and making positive change in the community since before he began the role on July 1.

“It’s a great thing to see the new development of what things are to come,” said Gail Hughes, the board chairman for DD2.

Robbins said he is happy to see the district’s teacher vacancies dip down to double digits, but the district is still finding creative ways to improve the retention of their 1,500 teachers.

Hughes said this includes creating incentives and working with town leaders to recruit educators to work in the district.

“It’s my responsibility, it’s the board’s responsibility, to keep and retain the best and the brightest, and also to demonstrate we are the best option in the community for kids to receive their education,” Robbins said.

In his new role, some of Robbins’ goals include implementing new technology in the classroom and boosting student engagement, he said.

“Having that unified vision, in practice, not just in words, is really important,” Robbins said.

Robbins said the most common feedback he hears from parents in the district is the need for consistency and normalcy after the pandemic.

“We’re still on the hills of COVID, and trying to get kids back re-engaged at the highest level, and support our teachers the best we can,” Robbins said.

Regardless of the changes Robbins plans to implement, he said he plans to keep the district’s “students first” mindset at the core of his work.

“It’s a wonderful school district, they have great achievement levels. But there’s opportunities for us to get better,” Robbins said.

Residents at The Ponds near Summerville feel home builder misled them

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Homeowners in The Ponds community in Dorchester County near Summerville say they were made false promises by a home builder when they were purchasing their homes.Over the past several days, neighbors have been emailing a copy of a map showing the nature trails in and around the neighborhood. However, there is very small print that says it’s a dynamic document and is subject to change.“I understand the things they can’t give us, that we don’t have,” homeowner Babby R...

DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Homeowners in The Ponds community in Dorchester County near Summerville say they were made false promises by a home builder when they were purchasing their homes.

Over the past several days, neighbors have been emailing a copy of a map showing the nature trails in and around the neighborhood. However, there is very small print that says it’s a dynamic document and is subject to change.

“I understand the things they can’t give us, that we don’t have,” homeowner Babby Rajt said. “I do not understand taking away the things we already have. Those trails, the few that are left, are here. We don’t need to manufacture them across the highway.”

Back on April 18, the county mediated with home builder Kolter Homes to change the original 2005 development agreement – made between the county and Greenwood Development -- which the county has called “vague,” horrible” and “open-ended.”

“I cannot hold a developer responsible for something that’s not in the development agreement,” Dorchester County Councilmember David Chinnis said. “I cannot hold them responsible for a map they handed to someone at closing that’s not part of the development agreement. There’s no way possible for me to do that. Can the homeowners do that? Possibly.”

Part of the agreement includes Kolter having to install 10 miles of walking trails and keep existing trails intact.

According to documents, when the subdivision was first brought up for development, there were 18 miles of existing trails throughout the property.

“When I was settling on the property, I was given a golf cart tour of The Ponds, the trails I just mentioned and was led to believe that it was going to be expanded,” homeowner Joe Kirby said.

Now, neighbors say that’s down to three and a half miles of natural trails. They feel they were misled when buying their homes.

“Kolter absolutely misled all residents at the time, proposing or showing us trails that do not exist, putting fine print in every contract,” homeowner Brian Riesen said. “Kolter 100% false advertised this community as being the premier economic, social, cultural hub of Summerville.”

Meanwhile, the county says the map included in the original plan is not enforceable.

“As I look through this map and see this, there’s a lot of things that have changed, and again, as I said before, there’s in one case at least one spot where there’s a house on one of these trails,” Chinnis said. “In the end, this identification is not part of the development agreement. It is part of the development plan, the P-D side of this, which is very different than that agreement, in my opinion, and quite honestly, I think it’s safe to say in the county attorney’s opinion.”

The adjustments to the development agreement between the county and Kolter Homes must go through three readings at county council before they’re implemented.

Jeff Vandewiel, the community director for Kolter Homes’ Charleston Division, released the following statement:

“Over multiple days this year, Kolter Homes negotiated with Dorchester County leaders to reach the mutually approved agreement on the planned improvements and continued development of The Ponds neighborhood. We realize no single plan will please everyone, but we believe this new shared vision will continue to ensure The Ponds is a wonderful place to call home and will benefit the greater Dorchester County community.”
