Just so, how do you wire a new breaker?
If you're installing a breaker on a subpanel, place the neutral and ground on separate bus bars. Neatly route the black and white wires to the empty breaker space. Attach the wires to the breaker and then snap it into the box, or install the breaker first and insert the wires last.
Additionally, how do I run electricity from my house to my shed? Run 14-2 NM wires throughout the shed and tie them through electrical wire boxes. Attach any desired fixtures in the shed or on outside and run wire as needed. Tie in 14-2 NM wires from fixtures and receptacles into sub panel breakers as needed. Turn off the electricity inside the home at the main breaker panel.
Also question is, can neutral and ground be connected together?
No, the neutral and ground should never be wired together. This is wrong, and potentially dangerous. When you plug in something in the outlet, the neutral will be live, as it closes the circuit. If the ground is wired to the neutral, the ground of the applicance will also be live.
How many outlets can be on a 15 amp breaker?
