Kitchen wiring


I am remodeling my kitchen and am getting ready to start the rewiring. I will have 2-20a gfci breakers feeding the outlets and I'm wondering if I can tap into one of these to power the hard wired led strip under cabinet lights. Also can I power a gas stove off the circuit for the microwave/vent fan?
Thanks,
Eric

Kitchen wiring


Do you mean a gas stove that is just electric ignition?

Wondering how many other circuits you'll need? Several.

Tap the existing 15A lighting circuit to feed this light.

It's done all the time.

Kitchen wiring


The gas stove can be off the 20 amp countertop circuit.

Lighting cannot be fed from the countertop circuits.
