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 add a breaker and install an outlet circuit.  Sick of having three extensions cords running to the garage?  Time to install some outlets on their own circuit!

Here's a video of a guy installing a breaker:

And here's one of a guy explaining an outlet circuit:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - install a new breaker
  - At least 4 outlets or one 20A dedicated outlet (fridge, disposal, etc)
  - If GFCI or AFCI protected, you earn an extra ½ point

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the breaker box before and after the breaker installation
  - the area before and after the outlet(s) are installed
  - the work in progress
The human mind is a dangerous plaything. This tiny ad is pretty safe:
