Hi, my home evaluation is not for another month, but I'm prepping for the visit already trying to learn about the requirements and project costs.
Here's my situation: I have an older house with a 100-amp breaker box. The breakers include a 30A 240 volt switch (single switch combining two poles--does that make sense?). I think the box is fairly crowded, with the exception of the 240v. That said, voltage and amperage requirements for our stuff has been going down for the last few years because of updated lighting, etc., with monthly usage varying between 5 and 8 kwh per day. Also, since our dryer, hot water and stove are now gas, we have no further need for 240 anywhere except for the Leaf.
I know that code and city inspectors have a lot to do with what's next, so I'm just curious if right off the bat my situation is requiring either a new box or an additional one at 240 and with a TOU meter.
Thanks for your help!
