Installing a Sub-Panel and Electrical Wiring
[ad#block]Electrical Question: I would like to add a sub-panel to an existing 150 A service. I have two open slots in the panel so I think I should be able to add a sub panel. I recently purchased a band saw (30A) and a dust collector (18A) both of which are 220 rated. So I need to add an outlet for these items. Where can I get the information to guide me through this?
