i want to add power to a sleep out.
Will I need the power cable to be buried or can it be run in conduit along a footpath?
Just budgeting to decide if I go solar or connected.
electrician will do the work when Im ready.

I think you are better to choose an Electrician and discuss with them about the best method to get power to the sleep out. I have mainly seen the submain cable to a sleep out buried (all the way) but you could go aerial.
Solar for a standard sleep out would not be economical. If you were thinking about solar then you would be better to install the solar system on the main house.

Conduit on the path or above ground is legal.
