Re: The renovation continues ... today new 400 amp service!
From my TED5000 - I can state that the very highest peakload I've ever seen was 25KVA on my house with 200 Amp service. The vast majority of the time, we sit at about 2KW, with some of the heavier electric users peaking it up - running the electric dryer frequently spikes to 12 KW, but that is also running the electric tank water heater recovering.
So I believe the power companies know what they're doing on their sizing of transformers for residential use.
