Electrical panel

The panel needs a 30" width, in which it can sit anywhere in that width. The panel needs a 36" depth from the face of the panel.

For example the left of the panel can be right next to the right of the washer if the width requirement is met.

Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
