Enter the voltage of the outlet, breaker amps, and power usage (watts) into the calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the percent load.

## Electricity Load Calculator

The following equation can be used to calculate the percentage load on a circuit breaker.

L = P / V*A *100

- Where L is the % load
- V is the voltage
- A is the amps
- P is the current power usage

## Electricity Load Definition

An electricity load is a measure of the total percentage of available load that an application is using up.

## Electricity Load Example

How to calculate electric load

**First, determine the power**Determine the total amount of power being drawn from the outlet.

**Next, determine the volts and amps of the outlet.**This will be the standard voltage and amps the outlet produces.

**Calculate the % load**Calculate the $ load used the information from steps 1 and 2 and the formula above.

## FAQ

**What is electricity load?**

The electricity load is the total percentage of the max output of a outlet that is currently being used. For example if the max output is 120 volts at 1 amp, and you’re using 60 watts, then the usage would be 50%.
