Hi, I am in Canada but I was just curious about the NEC requirements.

Do you have a requirement to have a means of disconnect in all outbuildings that have electrical power in them?
No meter, just fed off another building underground. Say one circuit coming from you house to a shed that has a light and some receptacles.
