wiring unfinished basement.
Is it ok to use 12-2 wire for both lights and receptacles? I will have each on a separate circuit as well. I read a lot about having to use 12-2 for receptacles, but to use 14-2 for the lights. I plan on putting a lot of recessed lights in various sizes. I am mainly talking about 1/2 of the basement being one open room (theater room, family room, with bar). thanks for your imput.
