Electrical Subpanel


I still don't get why your putting in a subpanel. I'm also pretty sure the minimum size feeder conductor for a panel is #10. Your installing a multiwire branch circuit and no panel or ground plate or anything else is needed. You take a 12/3(allows for distance) to your outbuilding. You go to a junction box. You take the black and a white to one gfci. You take a red and a white to the other gfci. You wirenut the reds together at the junction box. You wirenut the blacks together at the junction box. You wirenut the whites together at the junction box. Job finished.

Electrical Subpanel


It's been said three times at least that you DO NOT connect the neutral and ground at a subpanel, the p.s knight book is wrong as proven by the actual code I posted.. My honest opinion is that you may be in over your head on this one. Do some research and learn your stuff a bit then give it a go .
