Electrical Subpanels and Why You Might Need One
An electrical subpanel is a secondary circuit breaker panel that feeds off the main panel. It is installed for one of two reasons: either the main circuit breaker panel is already full of breakers and provides no room for installing additional circuits; or the subpanel is installed to put the control point for some circuits in a place close to the area they serve—such as in a woodworking shop or an upstairs apartment. When the goal is simply to add space for more circuits, the subpanel is often placed adjacent to the main panel.
