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 Waxhaw:
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.

Neighbors count seven single-car crashes since Summer 2021, with two of them happening this month.

People living near Pine Oak Road in Waxhaw describe a portion of it as a dangerous hairpin curve.

WAXHAW, N.C. (WBTV) - People living near Pine Oak Road in Waxhaw describe a portion of it as a dangerous hairpin curve.

The road off of Waxhaw- Marvin Road has a 35 mile per hour speed limit, but they say drivers are not following it and are caught off guard when the road curves.

They count seven single-car crashes since last summer, with two of them happening this month.

Neighbors tell WBTV they want to see guard rails around the curve and maybe even speed humps.

Home security footage paints a frightening picture of repeated crashes outside of Kevin Flynn’s home, which is adjacent to Pine Oak Drive.

“It’s a bit terrifying to be honest with you,” he said.

He has lived there for the past ten years and says he has grown accustomed to the sound of screeching tires from his backyard.

“We’ve already had one car go through our fence,” Flynn said. “If the kids are around and someone is out of control, there are no trees left to stop someone from coming into our yard at this point.”

Flynn’s next-door neighbor Ryan Barkley has been trying to find a solution, but he says because it’s a state road, local officials can’t do much about it.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation did install a warning sign and chevrons, but the neighbors say it did not do the trick in preventing crashes.

“Unfortunately about two weeks after they went up, someone ran into them,” Barkley said. “It just seems like people aren’t paying attention and the signs aren’t making the biggest difference we’re hoping for.”

A spokesperson for NCDOT sent a statement to WBTV reading:

“The department’s traffic services unit had previously installed a curve warning sign and chevrons (arrows) to alert drivers to the curve at this location. Prior to your inquiry, we had submitted a work order to replace any damaged or missing chevrons, and to cut back the vegetation around the curve warning sign. We will investigate further to see if any additional improvements are warranted.”

Barkley says more safety measures have to be put in place soon.

“I’m most worried about my children and that one day we’re going to walk out on a dead body in one of those car accidents,” he said.

We also spoke to a couple who has lived on Pine Oak Road for 35 years and say this curve has always caused crashes.

They said in the past people would veer off the curve and land in a cornfield, but that field is now replaced with a housing development.

According to an NCDOT records request by WBTV, in the last 10 years, there have been 14 crashes reported, and nine reported in the last five years.

The data shows that five were injury crashes and nine were property damage only crashes.

But a spokesperson added that “many traffic crashes go unreported for a variety of reasons, and this report simply provides a summary of all crashes on record that occurred at that location.”

The neighbors also reached out to Senator Burr’s office for assistance in their push for guard rails.

It's been two weeks since this Ukrainian family made their way to North Carolina, fleeing from the war in Ukraine.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - As thousands of refugees continue to flee Ukraine many are looking for new homes or temporary places to stay across the world seeking safety.

One family in Waxhaw opened their doors to a Ukrainian family so they can have a better life in America.

It’s been two weeks since this Ukrainian family made their way to North Carolina.

They fled Ukraine to stay safe, traveling through several countries before making it to America with no place to go, and thankfully, a Waxhaw family answered their call for help.

“It’s amazing how well we co-exist,” said Heather Leavitt, who opened her home to the Ukrainian family.

Both families have known each other for two weeks now. “Sharing kitchen space, sharing refrigerator space, driving,” Leavitt added.

Natilia Plagonenko, who is from the Donbas Region of Ukraine said, “we’re happy that we found the family.”

Their journey started in March when they fled their home in the Donbas region of Ukraine because of the war.

“The deciding fact is it’s far from war, far from war, very far from war,” said Plagonenko.

Over a month’s time, the family of three traveled through several countries to the U.S. seeking safety.

“They’re so brave to do what they did, that’s what my husband keeps saying, imagine leaving your country with two suitcases and a 5-year-old child and making that journey,” said Leavitt.

After making it to the U.S., the family reached out to Leavitt in Waxhaw, who signed up to host people from Ukraine after the war started.

Leavitt added, “there’s nothing better for us to do at this time in our lives than to help this family.”

Over the past two weeks, a lot has happened.

People in Waxhaw have donated clothes, toys, and a car, and enrolled their son in school.

“It’s been really incredible what the people of Waxhaw have done for this family,” said Leavitt.

Serhii Tkachenko said in Russian, “firstly, we feel safe, we feel safe, the United States has provided us with such an opportunity as a refuge from the war of Putin’s lawlessness.”

Back home in Ukraine, Serhii was a personal driver and Natilia was a photographer.

A life they miss but had to leave behind.

Plagonenko said, “of course, we miss our parents and our friends from Ukraine, it’s very scary.”

Their loved ones are close to the fighting, and they know people in need of help, so they’re asking Americans to open their doors like the Leavitts did for them.

“They want to get away from war, save their children and they need some places where they can stay temporary until the war will end,” said Plagonenko.

“We hope to return to our county,” said Tkachenko.

“We want to believe that everything will be okay in our country,” Plagonenko added.

The family from Ukraine found safe housing in Waxhaw through a site called “Ukraine Take Shelter,” It was created to help Ukrainian refugees find a host family.

The road ahead is long for them as they wait on temporary protected status and documents so they can work and earn money in the U.S.

NCDHHS Announces Limited Vaccines Available in NC at Several Local Health Departments for People Exposed to Monkeypox

The federal government has allocated North Carolina 444 doses of Jynneos, a vaccine that can prevent illness or lead to less severe symptoms if given within two weeks after someone is exposed to monkeypox. Those doses have been allocated to seven local health departments to ensure access across the state.

The federal government has allocated North Carolina 444 doses of Jynneos, a vaccine that can prevent illness or lead to less severe symptoms if given within two weeks after someone is exposed to monkeypox. Those doses have been allocated to seven local health departments to ensure access across the state. As additional doses become available, more locations will be added.

The local health departments first receiving doses are Buncombe, Durham, Forsyth, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, Pitt and Wake.

Because of limited supply, vaccination is currently only being offered to individuals with known or suspected exposure to monkeypox. This includes:

Individuals who meet these criteria can call their local health department to make an appointment to receive the vaccine, or they can call one of the seven local health departments that have already received vaccines as part of the phase 1 allocation of Jynneos vaccine:

Monkeypox vaccines are free and are based on availability of vaccine, which is in limited quantities currently.

"This is a good first step, but more vaccine is needed," said Dr. Zack Moore, State Epidemiologist. "We are working with local health departments and other partners to ensure equitable access to those at risk as more doses become available over the coming months."

Monkeypox is transmitted person to person through direct skin-to-skin contact, having contact with an infectious rash, through body fluids or through respiratory secretions. Such contact often occurs during prolonged, face-to-face contact or during intimate physical contact, such as kissing, cuddling or sex.

Anyone can get monkeypox, but many of the cases identified in the current outbreak have been in men who have sex with men. Cases have been able to be identified in part thanks to the vigilance of those who sought testing when concerns arose leading to the recognition that monkeypox was spreading in the U.S.

People can take basic steps to prevent the spread of monkeypox. If you have an unexplained rash, sores or other symptoms, see your health care provider — if you don’t have a provider or health insurance, visit a public health clinic near you. Keep the rash covered and avoid sex or being intimate with anyone until you have been checked out by a health care provider. Monkeypox is usually a self-limited disease with the symptoms lasting from 2 to 4 weeks, though severe cases can occur. Standard household cleaners and detergents are effective at cleaning environmental surfaces and linens.

Union County seeing rapid growth, leading to new development

Cuthbertson Road is just one area of Waxhaw that is seeing significant change, which is concerning some longtime residents.

WAXHAW, N.C. — Data shows more than 150,000 people have moved to Union County in North Carolina over the past three decades, and county leaders said there are no signs that the trend will slow down anytime soon.

And rapid growth often means new development.

“We’re one of the fastest-growing regions in the states," Union County planning director Lee Jenson said. “Developers reach out to us all the time."

County leaders point to three main reasons developers continue to pick this area.

“Good work-life balance; we have great schools, and we have low taxes," Jenson said.

Those are the same reasons Tony Palmer moved from Cleveland with his family seven years ago.

“It looked like home; it felt like home, and we loved where we were -- kind of rural but enough to do," Palmer shared.

But that rural feeling is starting to change in some parts of the county.

One such development is on Cuthbertson Road where trees once stood tall until it was rezoned in late 2020. Soon, 360 age-restricted units and 93 townhomes will be built on a 235-acre plot.

"When you start taking down the trees, there goes the rural part," Palmer said.

He hopes the growth slows down a bit.

"The growth is going faster than the infrastructure," Palmer explained.

And when new developments come, infrastructure is known to suffer. With narrow roads and traffic bound to increase, some residents are worried about this new development causing more problems for an already struggling area.

“In the evenings, there’s not many cars, and it’s not an issue but if you’re doing 45 to 50 mph, and the roads are super narrow," Palmer said. "Every single home I guarantee you has at least two children, so, between new drivers and things like that, it’s tough."

County leaders said there will be a new left-turn lane on Cuthbertson Road to help alleviate traffic.

"And then eventually, the state DOT will widen Highway 16," Jenson shared.

Union County recently rolled out a 2050 Comprehensive Plan to discuss how they plan to handle the new development. County leaders said, while they encourage growth, they know there's a limit.

“Growth should not occur out in some of the unincorporated parts of the county, so our new plan reflects that," Jenson said.

Residents said they don't hate the growth, but they are hopeful county leaders can build roads and storm sewers fast enough to keep up with the growing demand.
