I'm having trouble coming up with a plan to provide enough receptacles to this kitchen island to meet code.

The ends shoud be okay and will probably need two at each end, but there is an area in the center that would need a receptacle as well.

The dimensions are: 5' deep by 6'6" wide.
Adjacent to the sink is a compactor (to the left of the sink), and a dishwasher (to the right).

The more I think about it, the more receptacles this thing is gonna need!

Help!

Any ideas?

Only one receptacle is required for an Island counter with a long dimension of 24" or greater in length and a short dimension of 12" or greater. Since there this a sink in the middle of your island it will probably be considered 2 counter spaces so 1 receptacle on each end would be sufficient.

It appears that only 1 recept is needed on an island.

Virgil,

Relax, Breathe ...
Look at 210.52(C)(2) and 210.52(C)(4)

Only one is needed on that island. Install one one the side and you are fine. I (succesfully?) argue that only one is needed because that is one "island counter space". Even with the sink the two ends are not really separated the way the counter extends accross behind the sink. Most inspectors around here would agree and common sense would prevail.

I think one on the island would do it.
