Please see photos of sub-panel (in my detached garage) and the 50amp 2-pole breaker that feeds it.
If I am correct, I have almost 100amps @120v available in the garage, correct?
240v x 50amps = 12k watts
12k watts / 120v = 100amps
So I should be able to run a power tool on one 120v circuit (table saw, mitre saw, etc) plus a 120v dust collector on another, plus lights/chargers on another etc and shouldn't even come close to tripping that 50amp breaker. Assuming the power tools pull 12-15 amps or so each.
Is this correct?
My hope is that I can do all that and also add a (240v ?) mini-split...12k or 18k.
Yes, I will be replacing all the outlet circuitry with 12g wire and running them through the knockouts in the sub.
