Part IV covers optional feeder and service load calculationsExample Service Load CalculationsFor example, if a dwelling unit has a load of more than 100 amps, an optional calculation can be applied to it. 100 amps is the general minimum requirement, but this option provides a different way to do a calculation for larger service loads, which may result in a smaller size conductor, but not smaller than 100 amps. that apply to specific types of occupancies, including:

Single-family dwellings (Sections 220.82 and 220.83) Multifamily dwellings (Section 220.84) Schools that have electric heat or air conditioning (Section 220.86) New restaurants (Section 220.88)
