Kitchen GFCI Outlets

GFCI Protection for Kitchen Outlet Receptacles

According to electrical code, kitchen counter top outlets must be protected by GFCI, Ground Fault Circuit Interruption. Typically GFCI protection is provided by positioning the GFCI receptacle in the first position of the circuit which is wired as the LINE of the GFCI Outlet, then the additional receptacles are wired to the LOAD of the GFCI Outlet. If a single GFCI Receptacle is desired then the circuit wiring is attached to the LINE side of the GFCI Outlet.
