Add up the labeled currents or voltampere rating of all existing loads that can operate simultaneously. Determine the current or voltamperes available at the existing panel and its feeder circuit.

In a simplified sense, additional load must be sized to not exceed that feeder rating--or 80% or the feeder rating for continuous duty.

See 220.35 for existing loads. If you have to, you might get some relief from it.

As Redsy implied, get on the phone to the PoCo, and find out what the peak demand was for the last year. I'm sure that it will meet the requirements of 220.35.

Good Luck,
Doc
