However, I can read the 2008 National Electrical Code online (through the http://HowToWireAHouse.com website), and I can only find where it says that the new panel cannot be located in a bathroom. I don't see anything regarding kitchens.
Can anyone point me to where it says in the 2008 NEC (if it does) that new electric panels cannot be located in a kitchen?
The reason that I am asking is that I am planning to have a lot of work done in a 3-family property that I own, and I am thinking of having new electric services put in for all 3 units. If I do that, it will be done by an electrician with a permit and inspection etc. But, in planning for where I would want to locate the new electric panels, it would help if I knew whether they could be placed in the kitchens of each of the 3 units. In the end, I know I'll have to ask the electrician who ends up doing the work, but before dragging any electricans out to the property to look at the job, I'd rather get some info on my own.
