Service capacity

978 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Speedy Petey
I am assessing the existing 600a 3 phase 240v delta service in an shop
To we there is room for addition
Looking the utility bills that say 120 kW or 300A @ 240v 3ph maximum demand worst case

If Each leg at overhead(service drop) draws 100A assuming all legs balanced
Than I have big room for new loads
New load : 600A @240v 3 ph. 200A on each leg

What is the real capacity?
Any room for adding 600a load??
