How can I place an outlet in a peninsula to operate a compactor without a pony wall? Doing a remodel I removed a pony wall that had three electrical outlets, two facing the dining area (didn't need these any more thus the removal of the wall) and one underneath for the dishwasher. I've temporarily placed wire nuts and tape on all the wires and removed the power to them, but without a pony wall behind the cabinets I don't see how I can place an outlet in the side of an adjoining cabinet (fire hazard) and I don't think using an extension cord through the bottom of the cabinets to another outlet under the sink would be a safe alternative. What is the respective code requirement? Suggestions? Just trying to do and learn as much as I possibly can along the way...these 1-2-3 books from the local hardware store and library are fantastic.

You an place a receptacle within a cabinet. It has to be in an box and use approved wiring methods. Bascially like any other receptacle.

But there are some local requirements that could control this. So check with your local codes office.

Power is run to an island through the basement or crawlspace below the floor. If you've got a concrete slab for a floor, a slot is usually cut into the floor and a conduit is run to the island from the nearest wall.
