This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Electricity.
In this Badge Bit, you will replace or install a permanent AC light fixture.
Wiring varies greatly, just be safe when pursuing this BB
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- install new or replace existing permanent AC light fixture
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
- a picture of the current location that needs a new light fixture
- a picture of the installation midway through
- a picture of the finished installation with the light turned on
Well, the LED light fixture we bought so that we'd never need to change a bulb again (5 years ago) failed. The light still works when you hit it but the fixture has failed. So while we saved 30 cents in electricity with the LEDs, the waste of the dead fixture far exceeds the savings. So I got a prettier one that takes standard A15 bulbs so we can go with incandescent.

In a storage shed a permanent light fixture is not always pretty and the small bulb I had to test it with will be replaced with more wattage. Wire strippers have a small hole on the flat that is used to bend the stripped wire into a small J to hook around the screw, nice to know saves on the fingers. The light switch does not need to control the plug in the same box.
