penninsula wiring


not exactly sure how I should wire this new penninsula, or even if I can. Not understanding the NEC on this one. My penninsula is 10 feet long, at one end it butts against the wall, on the other end it forms an L about 4 feet. Counter top is flat ( no back splash) it overhangs the base cabinets by 15". where exactly would I mount the boxs and exactly what purpose could the outlets serve?

penninsula wiring


NEC requires a receptacle to serve the peninsula
They do not address what it will be used for, only that one has to be available
I'm not sure if it can be on the wall where the peninsula starts

penninsula wiring


Dave.,

They do count on wall side as well.

But for overhang if less than 6 inches it have to be on the end but with any overhang that have more than 6 inches then no you can not install the recepetale at all.

Note: there will be some local addmentent add to this part so check out with your local inspector for latest details.

Merci,
Marc
