Outdoors Lamp GFI needed?


I am remodeling the house and plan to place a hanging lamp in the front porch. The porch is covered on the top but open on the front. Does this outlet require to be fed from a GFI circuit even though it is under the roof of the porch?

No. Outside lights do not require GFI protection.
