The 2002 NEC 210.52(C)(3) states:
(3) Peninsular Counter Spaces. At least one receptacle outlet shall be installed at each peninsular counter space with a long dimension of 600 mm (24 in.) or greater and a short dimension of 300 mm (12 in.) or greater. A peninsular countertop is measured from the connecting edge.
If I read this correctly, if the counter top along the wall is 2' deep, the peninular counter would be mesured from the outer edge of the wall counter (where it joins the counter top along the wall) to the "end" of the peninsula. So, if counter along the wall is 2' deep and the peninular is 6'long, the total length from the wall to the end of the peninsula would be 8'.
Now having said all that, would the peninsula part of the counter top have to have an outlet, or would an outlet against the wall (in line with the peninula) be all that is needed?
I believe that the peninsula should have an outlet but can't seem to find a specific statement that says so.
I hope this makes sense to you all.
Thanks in advance.
