    SHORE POWER AND RESI LOAD CALC

    Hello all and thanks for lookin at my post!

    I am doing a residential load calc.

    They have 2 shore power connections rated at 30A / 240V. (They do have 2 boats with unknown loads.)

    I am inclined to use both at full value in my calc.

    This pushes the calc way up over 200.

    Am I making a mistake?

    Thanks!

    Look at 555.12.

    The article does not say resi, but in the 2017 it has been changed and does.

    THANKS!

    Looks like 2 receps with one each in 2 slips would be 100% per the change you stated in 2017. (2011 and 2014 NEC marina and boatyards to include residential. We are still on 2011 here)

    Someone just got a service upgrade!

    BTW - That is an important change because 2014 SCOPE states it is not for use with single family dwellings.
