My main panel in on the side of my garage. It currently has 3 breakers:
- Main breaker
- A/C breaker
- Sump pump breaker.
The main panel goes to a subpanel on the back interior wall of the garage which feeds the house. This panel has no breaker spots left.
I am remodeling my garage and adding lights and various outlets. My question is, how best should I handle these circuits?
- Can I add a new panel between the existing main and sub panel - i.e. Sending the main power to this panel first and then on to the second existing panel?
- Should I try and use an existing circuit -- there is a switch for an outdoor light already in the garage
- Update existing panel -- The panel is not in an ideal spot for wiring the garage when it comes to routing the wires. I have shear walls etc and I don't really want the cables to be visible.
I feel like 1 is the best option here.
