This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will trench power to an outbuilding.  Extension cords on the yard tend to attract lawnmower blades.  Let's trench a dedicated power supply!

Here's a video of the This Old House guy doing it:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - trench power more than 20' to a new location
  - follow local requirements for depth and need for conduit

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the location where the trench will go
  - the trench dug with wires/conduit in the trench
  - the trench filled in
  - explain how you met the code requirements for your area
Dinner will be steamed monkey heads with a side of tiny ads.
