I am a consumer and new in this forum. I am planning to open a self-serve yogurt store with 6 yogurt machines. If anyone here has previously done electrical work for such a shop, what should I be looking at in terms of the approximate total load that is required for the space? Each yogurt machine requires 18A x 2= 36A (for 2 dispensers) three phase. The space currently has 100A going in with a 200A meter at the main panel.

You need to either hire an engineer or an electrician to do the calculations.

I am closing this thread, in accordance with the Forum rules.

If I have misjudged the situation, if for example this project is related to your work, then send me a Private Message. If you can show me that I am wrong, and that you are a licensed electrician (or at least a licensed apprentice), then I will reopen your post, and offer an apology for the delay and inconvenience.
