Hi everyone, Getting my charging situation set up, Model 3 hopefully coming in a few months. I want to install a NEMA 14-50 in my garage interior wall. The four electricians I've talked to all suggest using Romex 6/3. I have a 200amp panel in the basement, about 80 feet from the garage, with an open slot. The work, as far as I can, is to put in a 50 amp breaker, run Romex 6/3 from the panel, through an unfinished part of the basement, penetrate the garage wall, run it to the spot where the outlet will be, and put the outlet there. I've gotten several wildly different quotes from electricians, anywhere from $1600 to $750, including the cost of the Romex. I'm obviously going to ask the electrician this, but thought I'd ask you guys these 2 questions: 1) From the basement panel to the garage, I assume the Romex doesn't need to be inside any type of conduit, right? Googling the NEC (Understand the Code Requirements for Wiring in Exposed Locations) says that in unexposed areas, it's ok to use it unprotected. 2) Once the wire hits the inside of my garage, it seems "exposed" to me - at this point, should it be in a conduit? I see a lot of stuff online about how Romex shouldn't be in a conduit due to heat build-up - but also about how it should be properly protected in exposed locations. Which is it? I have two young kids and I don't want them being able to touch the wire. thanks!
