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.

Waxhaw leaders passed the new 2040 plan, which guides growth. Changes could be made in the future as the incoming mayor questions the town's development.

WAXHAW, N.C. — Town leaders are already seeing a lot of growth in Waxhaw, North Carolina, but are at odds about how to handle it.

The current board of commissioners passed the 2040 Comprehensive Plan on Tuesday night.

It’s a policy document that will serve as a guide for decisions regarding land use, transportation, capital improvements and public programs.

The plan’s discussion comes on the heels of the election of Waxhaw’s new mayor Robert Murray, who said new developments in town have gotten out of hand.

"The apartment buildings and townhouses and mixed-use right by the downtown, which is an area that’s already stricken with excessive amounts of traffic," Murray said. "I think it’s that frustration that really drove our victory."

He said the town’s current leadership hasn’t been prioritizing existing residents when it comes to making plans for rapid growth.

RELATED: The town of Waxhaw is growing. How do community leaders plan to adapt to it?

"We definitely were effective in our messaging of hope and change to maybe tap the brakes on development and growth and ensure that we have a more stable plan for growth," Murray said.

With Waxhaw’s current mayor Ron Pappas on his way out, the 2040 plan is likely to be the subject of more debate about how the town addresses the growing population.

Pappas told WCNC Charlotte the 2040 plan simply updates and amends existing documents that have been guiding Waxhaw's growth for decades. The plan's top priorities include improving traffic flow, maintaining downtown’s charm, and increasing business opportunities.

"If we have some improvements or recommendations for street improvements or infrastructure improvements, then we can apply those conditions to any new project that would come in," Pappas said.

The board also unanimously approved a new neighborhood to be built on Providence Road during the meeting.

The Adelina project will take over nearly 230 acres of land along Providence Road and build 482 houses and commercial space.

Several members of the public spoke against the project and any future development in Waxhaw, citing traffic issues.

Pappas explained rezoning petitions allow the town to set conditions on developments that benefit the community, which otherwise wouldn't have been added if the developers built by right.

"It is to our benefit to let that come in and make sure that we get control and manage growth and we get improvements we need as a town because otherwise we just get what somebody else gives us," Pappas said.

WAXHAW, N.C. — Waxhaw is a bustling community, sitting right on the border between North and South Carolina, and in just the last decade, it has had a population explosion, doubling in size.

What You Need To Know

Mayor Ron Pappas says growth is in inevitable in his community, but managing that growth is key. The town is in the middle of major renovations to roads and sidewalks.

“So I'm a developer and planner as well,” Pappas said. “So, I have to look 50 years out. I have to envision what might be in 50 years and do the best job that I can."

He says this growth can be daunting, though.

“After being incorporated in 1889, I've got some pipes in the ground that I don't even know that are there,” Pappas said. “It may be a 2-inch pipe that needs to be a 10-foot pipe. There's a lot of that here, and we know when we open this up we're gonna find things.”

Now, Waxhaw is also part of a rail improvement project that will actually travel all the way to the N.C. coast. It will mean better access and safety in this community, but state leaders say its also a piece of the state economy.

“It's critical,” Jason Orthner, NCDOT rail director, said. “Intermodal rail allows us those moves to be moved, you know on a train and not in the highway, which reduces congestion in the Wilmington area, as well as all of them down our freeways, freeing up that capacity for additional goods and people.”

For North Carolina Secretary of Transportation Eric Boyette, he says with the number of infrastructure needs, rail is just one part of what keeps him up at night.

“You know, for me, it's the fact that we have so many communities with great needs,” Boyette said. “And you know, we travel across this great state, and we'll talk to our officials, our citizens about those needs, and there's that one project in every community they want.”

Right now, there is a major influx of federal dollars coming into the state to help with infrastructure needs, but from airports to deficient bridges, Boyette says he worries about funding down the road, particularly since right now the state relies heavily on gas tax dollars.

There is a major influx of federal dollars coming to help improve the state's 1,400 brides in disrepair, airports, and a long list of infrastructure needs.

“We all know at some point in time, it's not going to be as reliable for us,” Boyette said. “We've already seen it today with more hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles. You know, we're trying to plan that and look at what is you know, and there's no silver bullet.”

Mayor-elect Robert Murray hopes to stabilize town's growth.

WAXHAW, N.C. — Robert Murray attributed much of his ascension to Waxhaw mayor-elect to the frustration town residents have for the current administration.

The relatively new town resident told WCNC Charlotte's Jane Monreal on Flashpoint, the push toward higher density housing angered many people. He said that anger fueled voters to hit the polls, with a 66% increase in turnout since the town's last election.

"This idea of sort of urban centers, where you have, literally, apartment buildings and townhouses and mixed-use right by the downtown, which is an area that's already stricken with excessive amounts of traffic," Murray said. "We're talking gridlock both morning and evening commute through very small roads and a very charming downtown. And then, to just pack higher density into that same region. It's just a lot of folks have been frustrated by it, so, I think in all honesty, I think it's that frustration that really drove our victory."

He explained developers, which were formerly allowed to build only a house or two houses per acre, are now trying to get anywhere from five to six units per acre.

However, there is room to grow the region within reason, he said.

"That growth needs to fit within the confines of the town as it exists, which is a small road going in and a small road going out," Murray said.

"We have a fixed number of schools. We have a fixed amount of support we get from the county, both from the sewer capacity and from the school capacity, and we need to develop within those confines and not just overshoot, where we're at today, when it comes to our resources and our infrastructure," he said, "And a lot of people are feeling that we've done that. We're overshooting things."

Murray was part of a group of candidates that helped unseat several incumbents in the fast growing town in Union County.

While admitting the town is in good shape, he said their message of stable growth, stable taxes and residents first resonated among people living in Waxhaw.

"I do give credit to the current administration for putting us in a very solid position financially, with the town management and the actual employees within the town," Murray said. "But I think we need to tap the brakes on some of these developments. There are several developments that are already in the pipeline."

Elections for town office as contentious and divisive as ever according to political leaders

WAXHAW, N.C. (WBTV) - Usually you only see one name on a political yard sign. In Waxhaw, you might see three. A group of candidates calling themselves “The Waxhaw Wall” is running against three incumbents, including the current mayor.

“There’s such a contrast in candidates and some have aligned themselves with other candidates running for the position,” Union County Board of Education member Gary Sides told WBTV. “So you kind of have slates, if you will, and that’s a rather unusual phenomena that has just developed over the last election or two.”

Sides recently wrote an Op-Ed warning about a new development in Waxhaw that echoes some of the talking points of candidates running in Indian Trail, Weddington and Waxhaw calling themselves “The Wall.” (The pages for the two other candidates running for Waxhaw Commission are here and here)

“We don’t have capacity in that area of the county,” Saides said.

Jason Hall is a Waxhaw Commissioner who’s not up for election and recently wrote an Op-Ed about the growth challenges facing the town and the county.

“Union County’s been kicking the can down the road for a long time,” Hall said.

If The Wall is about stopping or slowing growth, Hall says the other candidates are about sustainable growth.

“You don’t have to work hard to find out North Carolina is a pretty good place to go,” Hall said. “The farmers are selling their land, who do you think they sell it to? Who is buying it?”

Hall says blocking development is only likely to end in litigation and rising property values and taxes.

“So, when you start thinking about the advantages the benefits of working with a project owner and what those benefits can offer the town, then it starts to make a little bit more sense,” Hall said.

Sides told WBTV Union County towns also need to respect the history and current culture of the county. He said the school board is more reactionary to the policy decisions made by towns and county commissioners.

“There’s a very strong agricultural component to Union County, I hope we don’t lose,” Sides said. “How we’re going to grow and at what pace and how we’re going to manage it.”

“We’re in a very challenging period right now, a very challenging period of growth and what you want in an environment like that is you want a team who’s got a lot of experience,” Hall said.

“It is very clear that there are two diametrically opposing opinions on the future of Waxhaw, as with many municipalities, and if you have an opinion then you need to go out and support by at least voting for the candidate that supports your view,” Sides said.
