I bought a Chevy Volt and would like to charge it. My driveway does not have any sort of power so I need to run a new line.
I live in a manufactured home ( trailer house ) which is raised off the ground. I am going to hire an electrician to inspect my work and run it through the floor and into the breaker panel. But I want to run the cable my self and save a little money.
What is the proper way to run a cable like this? Do I need conduit? If I do can I run it on the ground or does it need to be raised off the ground?
If I go in a straight line it is around 50 feet but if I go around the perimeter of the house it is like 75 feet.
I will be running 15 amps from the cable.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
