Returned back home and finally got my motion light installed. Thanks to all of you who responded to my call for help! Following your advice I gave up on the idea of wiring an extension cord to the light and running through conduit to the outlet. I did as everyone suggested and used the proper wiring and hardwired my light to the outlight. My light is now installed correctly, safely, and to the National Electric Code which my town adopted. Again, many thanks to all of you!
