Although there's no limit on the number of

**lighting**and/or receptacle**outlets**on dwelling general-purpose**branch circuits**, the NEC does require**a**minimum number of**circuits**to be installed for general-purpose receptacles and**lighting outlets**[210.11(**A**)].Also know, how many outlets and lights can be on one circuit?

A maximum of 12 **outlets** may be connected to a **circuit**. This may consist of 12 **light outlets** or 12 plug **outlets** (not appliance plugs) or any combination of **light** and plug **outlets** mixeed, as long as their total number does not exceed 12 **outlets**.

Also Know, how many outlets can be on a breaker? By rule of thumb you would stick with 8 to 10 **outlets** and or lights per **breaker**. Now this is of course they are 120 volts 60 Hz (USA or Canada).

In this manner, how many outlets can be on a 15 amp circuit?

10 outlets

How many outlets can you put on a 14 2 wire?

12 outlets
