It is my understanding that outlets can have wires connected on both sides. Example from another DIY.SE question here . If I have aluminum wiring. I want to add another downstream outlet. I will use an appropriate CO/ALR outlet. I will verify that the circuit can handle the additional load.
Can I have aluminum wiring on one side of a socket and copper on the other?
I am specifically asking if this AL to CU junction can be handled by the two sides of an outlet as opposed to an AlumiConn or Tyco connector.
