Here is a pic of yesterday inspection. There are about 6, 4 foot lights that are using extention cords. I would think you would want them hard wired?
This is what I often say. “One or more extension cords was used as permanent wiring. Service to replace it with permanent wiring is recommended.”
Let me guess… shop lights?
Yes Marc you are correct.
I dont know of anywhere in the code where it states that extension cords can be used for permanent wiring. In fact, i think most cords, if not all, state that they cannot be used for permanent wiring. I tell my clients that these cords are not approved for this purpose and that permanent wiring NEEDS to be installed by a licensed electrician becase if the inherent fire hazard.
