Hi,
What article allows 2/0 copper for a 200A service? This is a residential application. It is 310.15(B)(6) isnt it?

IS there a table for commercial service entrance ampacity?

Thanks for any replies.

-regards

Greg

No special table for other than dwelling units.

For a commercial service you will use 310.16 and the 75 C column.
