    2020 Change to Island Receptacles?

    This is related to an existing thread (https://forums.mikeholt.com/forum/ac...one-receptacle), but I wanted a separate discussion.

    I just read a WA State document that said there is a NEC 2020 change to 210.52(C)(2) related to island receptacles. I have not yet bought my copy, and I don't have time to look it up. Can anyone offer any information?

    The number of receptacles required will be based on the square footage of the countertop or work surface...One for the first 9sf, then a receptacle for each additional 18sf.

          Didn't know if you wanted the text-- here it is
