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 Tega Cay:
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.

TEGA CAY, S.C. — Leaders in Tega Cay are finally taking action on the city's deer issue.

During a Monday night meeting, city leaders approved a plan to cull 80 deer, which will cost just over $60,000. This move should make a dent in the city's deer problem.

At the meeting, Tega Cay City Council held a second reading of an amendment to the city’s code on discharging firearms and firearm-like devices to control wildlife. The ordinance currently states the city may grant special permission for it.

Back in September, officials said that over 1,000 deer were living within city limits. At that time, city leaders said that it would take killing about 350 deer to get the population under control.

A paragraph will be added that allows city council to grant, by a majority vote on a case-by-case basis, the temporary use of firearms, including air propellant guns for darting, to manage wildlife.

City leaders had been weighing whether to hire sharpshooters or use birth control darts to control the deer population. Neighbors who have seen the deer wreak havoc in their own yards say it’s past time to make a decision.

A few months ago, South Carolina wildlife officials gave Tega Cay approval to hire sharpshooters to kill 80 deer a year.

But there was some pushback from the community, leading the city to consider birth-control darts as an option.

On Monday, leaders are hoping that after culling the deer, and once the city is in a better place, they can move to only using a wildlife contraceptive to maintain a stable deer population within the city.

Deer population continues to be concern in Tega Cay

TEGA CAY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – New numbers show there are more than 1,000 deer live in the peninsula in Tega Cay, which on average is one deer per every 1.3 acres, city leaders say.

City officials have now requested a permit from South Carolina DNR to harvest the deer through a process called culling.

You see them on almost every corner in Tega Cay.

“There’s just so many. It needs to be controlled”, says Tega Cay resident Denny Heim.

Resident Denny Heim says not only does he believe the deer are dangerous for drivers, but they’ve also become a nuisance to his yard.

“We have steps going onto our porch. They walk up the steps and eat the plants off of our porch”, says Heim.

Tega Cay leaders have also been aware of the deer population concerns for years. A new count shows an estimated 1,028 deer.

At a recent council meeting city leaders announced they are requesting a permit from South Carolina DNR to harvest the deer through a process called culling.

Leaders say that means a trained sharp shooter would remove a certain amount of deer to control the population.

“We’ve had over 10,000 deer removed using sharp shooting in South Carolina again, primarily in the coastal area over the last 20 plus years, without incident. People have a misconception of what it is. Its one person, one sharp shooter. Its not an army of people out there running around in the community. They typically work with the community to set up areas they can bait the deer to safe fire zones”, says Charles Ruth.

Wildlife Biologist with South Carolina DNR, Charles Ruth says the process is very common in the state, especially in areas in the low country like Hilton Head. The process however, causing concerns for many residents who believe there could be another way to thin the herd.

“I’m a parent with children and dogs in my home and in my yard. I’m concerned about the safety of sing sharp shooters to kill the deer. Even if you make this as safe as possible there are no guarantees”, says concerned resident.

According to City manager, Charlie Funderburk experts recommend the town needs to get rid of 300-360 deer to begin the process of getting the population under control.

“Our plan right now as it stands, unless otherwise directed by council is to contract with the USDA to come in to conduct the removal process. We will also be utilizing off duty law enforcement in order to secure the areas, and those areas will be on the golf course in multiple locations” says Charlie Funderburk.

If approved, the process could begin later this year or in early 2024.

A citizen group called Tega Cay Wildlife Conservation is working on another plan members hope could control the population through fertility control techniques. If the culling process is conducted, the deer will be donated to a charity organization.

City staff estimates the cost would 40,000 dollars for the contract work with DNR.

TEGA CAY, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) – “She Serves” celebrates Women Veterans and the organization is specifically looking for women from York and Lancaster Counties here in South Carolina.

The women chosen will be featured in an upcoming digital publication that includes a very special photo shoot in Tega Cay on Veteran’s Day in November.

Tega Cay will be the first city in South Carolina with access to Google Fiber service.

Gov. Henry McMaster joined Google and city staff Wednesday to announce the plans. Tega Cay’s service is a first in South Carolina, but also an extension of Google Fiber in the Charlotte market. Service is available in the Charlotte and Triangle markets in North Carolina now.

The service is available in 32 markets in 17 states, including the addition of Tega Cay.

Construction on infrastructure for the Tega Cay service should begin early next year. Internet service would follow by late 2024.

In Charlotte, Google Fiber recently added 5 Gig and 8 Gig service. Other planned metro expansion areas includes Huntersville and Concord, North Carolina. Details on which Tega Cay neighborhoods will get services on what schedule aren’t yet available. According to Google Fiber, new network additions can take several years to complete.

Google Fiber offers include home Internet, Wi-Fi, television and phone service, plus business options. Rates for Tega Cay aren’t listed, but Charlotte prices range from $70 a month for 1 Gig internet to $150 a month for 8 Gig.

Tega Cay City Council unanimously approved a service agreement this week to bring in Google Fiber.

“This partnership will bring high speed Internet access, economic growth and innovation to our community,” Mayor Chris Gray said during Wednesday’s announcement. “We are committed to making Tega Cay a hub of connectivity and progress.”

Google Fiber announced plans in 2015 to bring its service to North Carolina.

“Even then,” said company southeast manager Darrel Hegar, “it was our hope that we would not only be in the Charlotte area, but we would be in South Carolina.”

Gov. Henry McMaster called the news a great step forward.

Long-time residents and new ones alike, McMaster said, will benefit as they have to be educated, kept safe and given opportunities to succeed to maintain the quality of life people in South Carolina expect.

“That’s where this comes in,” McMaster said. “That’s where Google comes in. That’s where broadband comes in. That’s where the Internet comes in. What we’ve learned is, our people have a thirst for information.”

TEGA CAY, S.C. — The city of Tega Cay could approve a culling process as early as October to address its deer population problem. However, some residents said the plan is dangerous.

READ: Deer dilemma: SC city dealing with debate over intrusive neighbors

Last year, Channel 9 reported that Tega Cay had about 350 deer per square mile.

City leaders said the population continues to grow despite a recent ban on feeding deer.

So, the city plans to submit an application that would allow for the culling of the deer.

The city’s mayor has addressed the problem, most recently at a town meeting.

“I want to go on record, publicly, saying there will be something that will happen in October, and we will have the tracks laid, so it will happen swiftly, and it will happen concisely,” Mayor Chris Gray said. “And we will be done with the deer in the next two to three years.”

A spokesperson for the city told Channel 9′s Tina Terry if their application is approved by the state Department of Natural Resources, they hope to cull about 100 deer in October.

The city would then evaluate the need for more culling in 2024.

Not all residents are on board with that plan.

“I think it’s extremely reckless and dangerous,” said resident Bob Abood.

Abood learned about the plan at the town council meeting.

Mary Ickert, with the Tega Cay Conservation, said the decision seems abrupt.

“We live on top of each other,” Ickert said. “We back up to golf courses. I don’t know where they think they can do this safely, within legal limits.

Leaders passed an ordinance in December that banned neighbors from feeding the deer in hopes that it might stop their population growth.

City leaders said SCDNR must approve the application to cull.

If approved, the city said it would work with a contractor to ensure it’s done safely, and it would cost about $42,000.

City Councilman Scott Shirley said the city is moving forward with the sharpshooter plan with one contractor and a team of two to three shooters.

TEGA CAY, S.C. — Tega Cay city leaders have decided to move forward with a plan to kill some of the overwhelming deer population in the city.

WCNC Charlotte has been following this story for nearly a year. The city's intention to hire sharpshooters didn’t sit well with a lot of residents. After months of no action on the plan, at the most recent Tega Cay city council meeting, Mayor Chris Gray stated the plan will start in October.

Mary Ickert, who was originally fearful of the plan, is now a co-chair of the newly-formed Tega Cay Wildlife Conservation. She said she’s still concerned by the acceleration.

"Many of us were blindsided by that reaction from a city that says we are looking into it, then saying it’s going to happen fast," Ickert said.

For the latest breaking news, weather and traffic alerts, download the WCNC Charlotte mobile app and enable push notifications.

A report by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources shows in the five square miles making up Tega Cay, over 800 deer were spotted. The department said the number for a healthy population is down to just 97.

City Councilman Scott Shirley said the city is moving forward with the sharpshooter plan with one contractor and a team of two to three shooters.

To get down to that goal of 97, the city would have to eliminate around 800 deer. The city has to obtain a permit from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, which would allow the city to eliminate 80 deer -- that’s for the entire permit, not each individual shooter. They can reapply for another permit the following year.

The cost falls on the city budget, made up of tax-payer dollars; for the first 80 deer on this permit, it could cost roughly $16,000.

A decade ago, the city of Tega Cay made a similar move with coyotes -- the natural predator for deer.

Ickert’s co-chair of the Conservation, Ruthie Smith, calls the current plan unsafe and inhumane.

"We’ve talked with several agencies and cities that have been successful in non-lethal deep removal," Smith said.

Shirley said realistically the shooting will start in January, leaving Ickert and Smith hopeful for a different solution.

A new report on the deer population is expected this month. If it shows a population decline, city leaders said the city won’t use the sharpshooters.
