Motel / Hotel electric heat calc
I have a hotel I'm bidding on with 60 rooms, each room has a FLA wall heater of 25 amps 240 volt (single phase). I figured 6000VA for each unit
6000VA x 60 units = 360,000VA
I= VA / E 360,000 / 240 = 1500 amps
1500 amps towards the total service calc from heat (larger load than the AC)
I beleive this 1500 amps would be at 100%, but in the NEC 250.51 has an exception that gives the local AHJ authority to change the %.
How can the AHJ even think that all 60 rooms in the middle of winter couldn't be sold out and all using there heat.
Has anyone ran across this before??
