electrical question


I will be running electricity from the patio to a new garage(transfering same lights basically).It is about 12ft away.Will i have to use a seperate panel box or is the transfer ok since it will be basically same 2 lights.
It will be run underground .Does this usually require install/approval by certified electrician to pass codes,or can it be installed by the contractor?
Thanks for any info.

electrical question


Detached garage?
Just running lights or outlets too?
One circuit or two?

You can run 2 circuits as a MWBC

Check with your local building Dept to find out if you can do the work or have to hire an electrician. Usually a homeowner can do the work, BUT someone hired must be licensed to do the work. Local rules apply - so you need to check

Not very good questions, so the answers may not help.

Local regulations vary. There is no "usual".
