Hi all,

Question regarding advanced energy metering. The credit require that any individual energy end use that uses 10% of more of the total annual consumption of the building must comply with advanced metering. The electricity-metering strategies also indicate that individual branch circuit meters can be avoided if 90% of a panel's load is directed to a single end use.

Here's the example I'm struggling with. I have a series of electrical panels dedicated to receptacle loads. On that same panel, I would like to circuit a couple of hand dryers and projection screens to the same panel. However, according to my panel load, these would likely take up at least 10% of the load on the panel. I find it difficult to believe that they would account for more than 10% of the total electrical load. That being said, would these I'll say miscellaneous loads, require branch circuit metering?
