In the diagram below, a 2- wire NM cable supplies line voltage from the electrical panel to the first receptacle outlet box. The black wire line and white neutral connect to the receptacle terminals and another 2 wire NM that travels to the next receptacle. This repeats until the end of the chain. Diagrams shown on this page are simplified for clarity.

Here we illustrate basic connections seen in the field for the black, white neutral or grounded conductorand ground wire when hooking up an electrical receptacle wall plug or "outlet". We describe how to wire an electrical receptacle by making the right connections between individual electrical wires and the proper screw or clamp connectors on the electrical receptacle device itself. We also describe connecting the ground wire between the circuit grounding conductor, receptacle ground screw, and the electrical box if metal boxes are used.
The following project shows how to connect the receptacle when the electrical box has already been installed and when the necessary NM electrical cables have been run in the wall cavities. Carefully read the following instructions to determine if your skills and understanding are sufficient to do the job. However, replacing an old receptacle with a new one, or installing receptacles when the circuit wiring and electrical boxes are already in place, as described here, is a job that just about any homeowner can safely do. Household outlet receptacles can be wired in one of two ways, depending on where the outlet falls along the circuit. One cable is bringing power into the box from the power source, while the other cable or cables are carrying power onward to other outlets or fixtures.
