Default Run power to projector on ceiling via conduit

Hi All,

Found this forum while searching for some answers on installing my projector.

I had the builder put in a 1" conduit so I could run power to my projector when it's time to buy and install one. The builder put a orange HPDE conduit.

As per houston/TX code, is it ok to run a power cable/romex via the orange plastic conduit to power the projector? The run is around 15-18 ft and is indoors.

Thanks.

(I was trying to find a section where homeowners can post, is this site exclusively for professionals?)
