Would I be required to install a 15 or 20 ampere 125v. receptacle in a detached building (not a garage) at a residence? Or, could this be an option? All the contractor installed was a luminaire.

The light in a detached utility building is a luxury, not a requirement, nor is a receptacle.
As a design issue I can't imagine bringing 120v out to a utility building for a light and not putting in a receptacle but I am not sure how you can require it.

George Little...the code does specifically state "detached garages" under 210.52(G)

I'm with gfretwell on this one, no the receptacle outlet is not required.

Although, I would put one in if I wired that building [Linked Image]

I agree.

You know I can not even believe someone would leave out a receptacle outlet in a case like this. [Linked Image]


Still....Glad it's not a code requirement. [Linked Image]

210.52(G) requires a receptacle outlet, if the detached garage has power.

Edit: Sorry, looks like somebody already said that...thats what I get for posting before having some coffee [Linked Image]
