This wire has a cirtex-u stamp on it. Not completely sure if the u designation allows for underground burial without an approved raceway. Also is there any plug ins that are designated for direct hook up like this. The name of the company who makes the plug in is hubbell. Couldn't find any literature on this.

Cirtex is the brand (made by Cerro Wire). I don't know what the U signifies, but it probably doesn't have any bearing on your question.

That looks like NM cable, but it doesn't really matter in this case. There's no cable that listed for that kind of use. Any cable - even one listed for direct burial, would need to be protected by conduit where it emerges from the ground.

As far as I know, that plug is only listed for use with cords, not cables.

It's safe to say that the installation in the picture is wrong in every way.

Unless the artist was making statement about the juxtaposition of our electric world backed by a sea of stones dating back billions of years. Actually, you're still right. It's wrong in every way.

Here I have made a more evocative statement to prove the point.

Thus the artist has portrayed the irony of the incorrect product terminated by ill conceived means to achieve the common goal of distributing power from the home to the garden shed. [:)]
