    How many receptacle outlets can be installed on any given 110 volt circuit?

  2. Dave Rongey says:

    Hi Keith,
    The number or receptacles or outlets that can be installed on a 110 volt circuit would depend on the amperage of the circuit, what the circuit will be used for and what area of the home the circuit will be installed. Some applications are restricted to only one receptacle, such as a 15 amp circuit for a refrigerator.
