Hi!

How many Supply Services of the same voltage and characteristics are permitted in a building?

What confuses me is the rules
6-102 (1) - Which says only one
6-104 - Which says up to four

May be the way I'm interpreting the rules are wrong. Please help me to resolve this
Thanx

A hint for you!

Read the rule and look watch out for wording.
Then check definitions in Section 0.

I am saying this so you learn your way around the book, many people make errors in interpitting the rules due to definitions used in book.

Srinika: If you are having a hard time making sense of the two rules. Take a look at a duplex or four-plex house and look at the electrical service. Compare how this is done as opposed to a single family home, also compare how it is done to how a large apartment building is done.
