Has anyone heard of NM with no neutral???

Hi, Guys,

The tesla charger requires romex (NM) with 2 conductors (240v), a ground, and no neutral, as far as I can tell.


I've never heard of this kind of wire. Have you? Is 4/2 with ground less expensive than 4/3 with ground? I am going to need about 130 feet of it and I'm having sticker shock (around $1000 !!!)

Does anyone know a source for this kind of wire?

Alternatively how about if I run 2" pvc conduit

with single conductor (what size ground--also #4?) which seems a much cheaper option? I've never pulled wire that big that far...I guess you need various locations along the way that you can use to pull. Do LB's count for that purpose? And how do you pull when the wire is all slippery with pulling compound?

Thanks in advance!

Best wishes,
