15 Amp, 125 volt branch circuit with duplex 15 Amp, 125 volt receptacles. Plugged into a single duplex are two 6.5 Amp (nameplate) commercial referigerators, one into each position. For the sake of discussion there are no other loads. Does this violate ANY ratings or NEC requirements?
To change the question slightly... Suppose the duplex were split and each receptacle had it's own 15 Amp circuit. A load of 12 Amps could be connected to each, giving a total current of 24 amps through a standard, everyday, less than $1, duplex receptacle, correct?
