I'm finishing up the rough in wiring for a kitchen remodel, but I have a situation where I can't run cables through studs for a light switch because there is no wall cavity. I decided to run it strait up against the wall into the attic space through conduit. Its a short 5' run of conduit and just 90 degree stubs out into the attic then connects with the kitchen lighting circuit.
I ended up just stripping the romex back instead of using THHN because I needed the attic portion of the run to be sleeved (I'm aware of the lack of conductor labeling violation here, its just what I ended up doing in my own kitchen). The conduit does NOT connect back to the panel. Is having a bare ground inside conduit going to be an issue? Is this any different from having a ground connected to a metal box?
Any info would be much appreciated, thanks!
