How much Wattage on a single breaker.

Answer

 1200 watts on a 15 amp breaker is ok although you may have a problem with light bulbs wired to a GFI. You could cut back to a 100w bulb and have close to the same results using only 800watts. You could also use fluorescent flood lights or a low voltage lighting system to save even more energy. Hiring a professional electrician like Priority Electric can show you how to SAFELY and efficiently light your home.
