How many watts can a dimmer switch handle?

There are four common dimmer ratings: 150 watt, 300 watt, 600 watt and 1000 watt. For a single bulb, 150 watt rated dimmers are usually used. The light fixture has a Wattage rating sticker on it. Divide the number of fixtures by the rating of the fixture.
