Is there a limit to the number of outlets I can protect with one GFCI recepticle? I'm running a 20 amp circuit to serve the counter tops. Given the layout, I need 3 additional outlets. I'd also like to stick one behind the stove off the end of the cabinets (it would be convenient given layout of our house) for a total of 5 outlets. Is that too many?
I also am installing 2 small accent lights that it would be way easier to pull off this circuit rather than running cable from the lighting circuit. Is this advisable?
Thanks for any help.
In the US under the NEC you cannot add the lighting to the small appliance branch circuit. You should also have two 20 amp small appliance branch circuits. There is no limit to the number of downstream receptacles.
