I am installing an outdoor receptacle (NEMA 14-50) on a dedicated circuit for EV charging. While the charger uses a 14-50 plug, it only draws 24A (80% continuous rating for 30A circuit).
I have two questions about installing this receptacle:
- Can I install this on a 30A breaker? My expected load is always going to be 24A, even if the receptacle can handle up to 50A.
- To provide Stage 1 EV charging (for overnight charging), can I install a 20A receptacle on the same circuit? Again, the expected load is always 12A (80% of 15A).
