I am installing a wall mounted light fixture. The fixture can either be plugged into a wall outlet or hardwired into an outlet. I am choosing to plug the fixture into a wall outlet. In addition to the cord/plug, there is a ground wire on the fixture.
I get what to do with the ground wire if the fixture was going to be hardwired, but this is not what I'm planning to do. So what do I do with the ground wire. The installation instructions only address the ground wire in the context of hardwiring. Can I leave the ground wire as it is, can I cut it off?
