Code for clearance around Breaker Box
I'm in the early stages of putting up cabinets and countertops into my garage to turn it into a workspace. I've only just begun to plan it.
Before I go to deep into planning, I wanted to know how much clearance am I required to have in front and around the breaker box here in California (Hayward actually)?
Can it be between the upper and lower cabinets? In the backsplash area? Or am I not allowed to put anything in front of it at all?
I've tried doing Google searches and looking at my local city's website for code restrictions, but I must be typing in wrong keywords because I can't find a damn thing that's legible.. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
