Wiring diagram for dual outlets here 3 wire cable is run from a double pole circuit breaker providing an independent 120 volts to two sets of multiple outlets the neutral wire from the circuit is shared by both sets this wiring is commonly used in a 20 amp kitchen circuit where two appliance feeds are needed such as for a refrigerator and a microwave in the same location. First connecting the wires leading to downstream outlets with wire connectors creates a more secure connection and second its easier to press the outlet back into the box if fewer of its screws are connected to wires instead use wire connectors to connect the neutral hot and ground wires along with 6 in long pigtails
