I’m sorry. Utilization Equipment. The 2020 NEC defines utilization equipment as; Equipment that utilizes electric energy for electronic, electromechanical, chemical, heating, lighting, or similar purposes.If you're an apprentice anything, I'll eat my hat.
What does utility equipment and a "VA reading" have to do with a load calc?
Utilization equipment like furnaces have everything to do with load calcs. It’d be very odd for a 5th year to know off the top of his head when to calculate the load of every appliance, piece of equipment, device, and light.
Let me move some things around and possibly add or subtract some things and then we can talk about these “basic things” that we touch on the basics of one time our 2nd year. That’s rudimentary stuff, but it’s not my place as an inside wireman apprentice to calculate an additive load of a building.
What kind of 5th years are you rolling with? You’re talking real big, buddy. This would be an easy thing to say for someone with years of work after an apprenticeship or topping out under their belt. Calling me self-righteous. You guys don’t even know the meaning.
