Direct burial cable is usually down at least 4 feet.
Rigid Metal Conduit or equivalent can be 2 feet.
If it's in actual metallic RMC I don't know if you have to have the ribbon, but it's a good idea.

Oil Pan has been summoned!

Good morning Oil Pan! How have you been? What is new?

Ah yes. You said 2' for power. I do not know why I thought it was only 18". How far apart do the two conduits need to be? Can I run it into the wall like cable television?

When Piotrsko mentioned you I started trying to look up the regulations. This is so much easier!

There'snothing new in new Mexico.

Putting RMC down 18 inches would likely be fine, I have found direct burial cable down 4 inches and it was supposedly inspected by the county inspector.
If I remember correctly there is no national electric code minimum for buried conduit spacing. Local codes may be different.
I would recommend they not touch each other, only to prevent rubbing and corrosion.
Through the wall really should have an access box or junction box on the inside or outside, do both inside and outside if possible.

I got some curtain liners from Dollar Tree, but they did not have any green ones, or tablecloths. I do not know if white helps the virtual background, but it must lighten the room measurably. I need to figure how to put more light on my face without blinding me. It is weird, I feel like I have teleported from Therapy Land to YouTube, except I am not recording anything, and this is only for one person to see.

Sure, some people get rich through YouTube, but this pays me more than most people probably earn on YouTube.

This is one of the backgrounds that I tried:

Light your face with a secondary UV source, won't blind you, but the cameras generally see it. Not more than a couple of milliwatt or you get sunburn in odd painful places. A remote tv clicker ought to work.

I'd rather try curtains, for a (presumably) cheaper and less energy-intensive approach.
