Branch-Circuit Load Calculations, Part 2

Branch-Circuit Load Calculations, Part 2

What if your application isn’t in Table 220.12 minimum load requirements?

Previously, we noted that the 2015 NEC added an Exception to the Table 220.12 minimum load requirements, to facilitate compliance with energy codes. But what if your application isn’t in that table?

It’s covered by either:

  • 220.14 (Other Loads -- All Occupancies) or
  • 220.16 (Loads for Additions to Existing Installations).

If you’re adding loads to an existing installation, apply 220.16; else, apply the other one.
