All circuit wiring / feeders must comply with Art 625 of the 2017 NEC (and 2020 NEC).
Charging stations are considered continuous duty loads required branch circuits and feeders to be calculated at 125% of the maximum load.
The service size must be calculated using 100% as a “continuous load” (such as heating and air conditioning are calculated).
Vehicle charging stations cannot be included in the portion for general load utilizing percentage demand to establish service capacity required.
Everyone should have the service capacity calculated prior to installation of charging systems.
The following is information regarding why temporary electric is needed for temporary equipment used to mitigate fire and water damage.
It is important that everyone understands risks and liability of not following electrical codes and osha standards. All electrical codes prohibit knowingly overloading electrical circuits and require gfi rotection for temporary equipment. Osha requires gfi protection for all temporary 125 volt equipment. General wiring circuits in houses, offices, and commercial spaces are not installed with the intention of “continuous load” which is three hours or more. General wiring circuits are not capable of loads exceeding 80% of the rated ampacity of the circuit at any time. Defective splices and connections can burn under a heavy load, even when the ampacity is not high enough to trip a circuit breaker or blow a fuse. Overloading a circuit will cause a fire if the circuit breaker fails.
Circuit breakers subjected to water, moisture, improper installation, or use in a panel without a ul listing verifying compatability, can fail especially under “continuous load” exceeding its rated ampacity. When you call allways electric corp for the emergency service we will always provide priority service and do what is needed to ensure electrical safety. We will calculate the electrical load requirements of the temporary equipment you plan on using. If you instruct us not to install temporary electric, we will not be responsible for property damage, shock, or electrocution of anyone touching or handling the equipment. Our company will always do the work as per your instructions and want you to have the knowledge needed to make the decisions. If you would like copies of codes regulating fire and water damage repairs or would like to schedule a “zoom meeting” for your company to review these codes, give us a call.
