I live in Ontario and currently need to make room in my panel to add a freeze in my laundry room. I looked over the panel and noticed the the 4 20a receptacles in my kitchen each have their own 20a circuit. After some reading I found that you are able to put 2 receptacles max on a protected kitchen circuit. Is this correct and am I correct in thinking I can create an accessible junction for two of the receptacles, connecting them to a single 20 amp circuit to free up a circuit?
If it were me, I'd look for a different way to make some space. What about a sub-panel? What about a tanden breaker? Sub-panel would help for the future, and depending on your setup might not be any more$$$.
