    Some perspective: 200 amps at 240 volts is 48,000 watts. 48 kw can go an awfully long way, particularly in a residential setting.

    I have a 200A service on my house, no A/C, gas heat, electric oven, electric dryer,,, When I light up every thing possible I can't pull more than 70A no matter how hard I try.
