This morning a co-worker asked me about sizing a residential generator. I hope I gave him the correct answer. I told him to make a list of the specific loads and use Article 220 as applicable. I feel it should be treated somewhat like a feeder concernng computing the load to size generator. Does anyone agree / disagree?
