Meaning Of 150 amp Service: At 115 V, Or At 220 V ?

Page 2 of 2  


Yes.
That is, if you look at how 220 is wired in a (US) home, if 150 amps is being supplied on one leg, then it can "return" so to speak, either on the neutral for 110V, or on the other hot leg for 220. So the 150 amps is available at either voltage.

WRONG. 150 amp service can supply 150 amps on *each* leg of the service. That adds up to 300 amps at 110 V. Or 150A at 220V. Or any combination that adds up to 33 kVA, provided that no more than 16.5 kVA flows through an individual leg.

Ah, a man that knows there is a difference between kVA and KW. You ought to use a moniker of "Mr. Power Factor" and keep 'em guessing. ;-)
