I want to add an electrical outlet near this point. On the other side of the wall from this junction is my main breaker panel so I intend to run the wires from the panel through this junction. The problem is that there is no other opening in the junction.

Ideally I would have an opening on the right side of this junction and run conduit outside the wall about one foot to the new outlet. What type of junction box should I buy? It needs to go through the wall into the back of the breaker panel. I’m not sure I’m searching for the right terms and can’t find a box that has all the openings I want.

What’s the easiest way to do this and still have it look tidy? Not sure it matters for my question but this will be a 240 volt, 30 amp outlet for a car charger.

  • What diameter is the conduit shown? Sep 24, 2021 at 2:57

    The conduit is 7/8" outer diameter.

    Can you provide a picture of the back of the panel (with the panel cover removed) showing where that cable enters?

  • It says 3/4 on the LB cover

  • What size wire and how many are already in that conduit? It might not be as easy as pulling extra wires through it - it may already be at fill capacity.

You'll have to pull the wires back through the LB to install a new conduit body. There's a product by Arlington Industries called ANYBody. It's a conduit body with removable hubs that allows you to create any configuration required.

Also, here's a link to Arlington's website for that product. You can enter your zip code and find a local supplier. Most electrical supply houses carry this product and have counter sales.

  • There's a bit more to it than that, as extra wire is needed. Some slack will need to be found, or a new length of cable will need to be pulled.

  • What do you mean? Just need to pull 2 #10 THHN wires to the EV charger. Easy.

  • I guess I interpreted the request as a split in the circuit at the LB. Maybe that's not what was meant.
