If you are in USA, you need a receptacle.

(2) Island Countertop Spaces. At least one receptacle
shall be installed at each island countertop space with a
long dimension of 600 mm (24 in.) or greater and a short
dimension of 300 mm (12 in.) or greater.

(3) Peninsular Countertop Spaces. At least one receptacle
outlet shall be installed at each peninsular countertop
space with a long dimension of 600 mm (24 in.) or greater and
a short dimension of 300 mm (12 in.) or greater. A peninsular
countertop is measured from the connecting edge.

(4) Separate Spaces. Countertop spaces separated by
rangetops, refrigerators, or sinks shall be considered as
separate countertop spaces in applying the requirements of
210.52(C)(1). If a range, counter-mounted cooking unit, or
sink is installed in an island or peninsular countertop and
the depth of the countertop behind the range, countermounted
cooking unit, or sink is less than 300 mm (12 in.),
the range, counter-mounted cooking unit, or sink shall be
considered to divide the countertop space into two separate
countertop spaces. Each separate countertop space shall
comply with the applicable requirements in 210.52(C).

It may be installed in the pennisula if conditions allow.


Exception to (5): To comply with the conditions specified in
(1) or (2), receptacle outlets shall be permitted to be
mounted not more than 300 mm (12 in.) below the countertop.
Receptacles mounted below a countertop in accordance
with this exception shall not be located where the
countertop extends more than 150 mm (6 in.) beyond its
support base.
