I'm building a 28 x 24 addition to a house. The meter is located on a pole about 70 ft from the house. There is a feed to the house, and to a small outbuilding from the meter box. There is room for another circuit in the box. Can I run another feed from the meter box to a subpanel in the new addition? I have about 30 outlets, 4 light switches, and 16 lights in this addition.
Yes. If the calculated load of the addition is not more than can be added to your existing service panel load. You can do a regular residential load calc for the addition. Most of the resi loads can be calculated on a sqft basis. You can see examples in the back of the code book. Special circuits for bathrooms, kitchens and heating and cooling are specifically calculated but again the code book has examples of load calcs.
Bah, thanks on behalf of Brid
