Installing outside electrical
I presently have an electrical box in my home which at one time contained a switch for some interior device. It is being fed by a 12/2 w/ grd NM directly from my loadcenter. This circuit is no longer being used.
I wish to feed (underground) some decorative lighting and an outdoor receptacle 125' away at the front of my property from this box. I want the lighting to be controlled by a switch in this box, but I wish the receptacle to remain live.
I own 250' of 12/3 UF which I hope to use. The receptacle will be a wet area GFCI.
Is it ok to create the switched circuit to the lights on one conductor and the unswitched circuit to the receptacle on the other while tying the neutrals together at the load end? Or...will this require me to run the 12/3 all the way back to the loadcenter to run off of a 2-pole breaker?
