So, the customer has all energy efficient compact florecent lighting in his home. We are installing a whole house generator. The inspector looks at the load calculation and says the customer has 91amps for a calculated load and the 20K generator will only power up to 83 amps. I think you need to find a way to get the total load under 83 amps or get a load shed ATS. I say, I think you need to take in consideration that the customer is using all energy efficent lighting and the (X3) multiplier on your general lighting just went out the window. He said, I think you are walking a fine line, and what if the customer reverts back to standard incandecents. I say, I think the odds of that customer going back to standard incandecent are pretty slim considering they just invest $300 on bulbs to make this happen and I think you should let us by. He said No. XXXXXXXXXXX So, I told the customer we would have to just put his 2 kitchen circuits on power masters to lock them out from being energized at the same time, to please this idiot and bring down the total load capacity. The inspector then states that I would be voilating 2 circuit kitchen appliance minimum. At this point I snapped under pressure and told him "Its an emrgency XXXXXXXXXXX Generator, are you on a mission from hell". He left the job and says hes not coming back until I am away from him. I should not have went off, but do I have any backbone whatsoever that I may fall back on. I can not see a reason why he would not let me get by with 1 countertop circuit during an emergency. I just cant find any reason for him to be this way. I did not get angry with him until after he barraded me with NO's.
