from panel box to garage, 40ft. I want to install an automatic door opener and some lighting and out lets for small hand tools and appliances (radio,batterie charger). Nothing above ground and nothing below that i'm aware of.with such few details, it will be impossible to tell you.
How far? What do you want to do out there? Anything in the way?
Capability and expandability. It gives you the option of adding more stuff later. It's the best way to go. Second best is a MWBC (multiwire branch circuit) and a single circuit is last on my list. Use the search function. You have no idea of how much information is already typed (pictures and diagrams too) ready for you to use. Then after you get the basic idea, THEN ask for more info if you need it. You probably will not need any more help. :thumbsup:what are the benifits
That will work with getting lights into the garage at night :no:If you only want a few watts, max, or a few watt-hours each day, go solar.
1/2 hp at 24v is >15A. You won't save in the cost of wire, that's for sure.Do garage door openers run on 24v ?
The NEC doesn't apply to me, as I'm out of jurisdiction. However, the ground temperature is about 20F for 6 months of the year.You do know that you are not in code by running Romex through Conduit all the way.
