Multiple recessed lights on own circuit 1 dimmer


Adding 8 recessed lights to basement and going to put them on their own 15A breaker. Each light is 50W and I am concerned about using the existing basement circuit because it has a bunch of things on it already.

I will be using 14/2 going from breaker box to dimmer switch, dimmer switch to 1st pot, 1st pot to 2nd, etc.

I just want to guarantee this diagram is accurate. Thank you!

Awesome, much appreciated. Can't wait to make the final connections tonight!

Yes I left a lot of slack at each hole - didn't want to be short and I bought lots of wire just for this purpose!
