Wiring of courseReport
Please briefly explain why you feel this question should be reported.
Putting a sub panel in a workshop. Only going to use lights and recepticals, no welding or high amp tools. I have run 20amp wiring through out the shop. I have a dedicated line just for lights which there will be 4 over heads. I have 10 outlets. My question is this, I think I didn’t get the right wire from the house to the sub box. I got 12/2 w ground so I was going to use both the white and black wire as hots from a dual 20amp breaker in the main house box to the shop using direct burial wire. I am still a bit confused on the use of a neutral wire. Do I need to run one from the main box to the sub panel?. I had planned to drive a grounding rod by the shop and use that. Do I need to ground the wire from the main to the shop. I thought I had this all figured out but suddenly I wasn’t sure. Thanks for any help
