I'm renovating my basement. Part of the renovation requires rerouting some wires.
I have en electrical box that is going to act as:
- a duplex outlet for circuit 1
- a junction box for circuit 2
Circuit 2 feeds a kitchen countertop outlet, so I don't want to add another outlet on this circuit. Previously, circuit 2 was also used to feed a light fixture in the unfinished laundry room. This light fixture was previously acting as the junction box.
Both circuits are 15A.
As usual, I'm going to connect the ground of circuit 1 to the electrical box.
My question is: should the ground of circuit 2 be connected to the electrical box?
