I am replacing halogen under cabinet puck lighting to LED. The old system was hardwired right into a switch with a power source that was starting to make noise so I thought I would replace the whole system with LED lights. The switch is at the counter level (on its own breaker) and the wire runs up the back to the top of the cabinets (there is about 1 foot of space between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling).
What I have done so far is disconnect the old power driver and put an outlet there sitting on top of the cabinets in a metal box because the new LED system is plug in. However, only 3 of the new LED lights will reach that outlet, I need to get an outlet on the other side of my U shaped kitchen.
Is it as simple as daisy-chaining another outlet? I can run 12/2 from the first outlet on top of the cabinets to the other side of the kitchen.
This way I can plug in the other 3 LED's to the new outlet and the switch will control both outlets.
Would this work and are there any potential code violations?
