Connect POW R2 to Outlet

 I would like to connect the POW R2 to an outlet to measure power consumption. The wiring diagram on the POW R2 seems to show the ground and neutral are both bridged between input and output. Does this mean I only need to connect one wire to each?


For example, would the following be a valid (i.e. safe) configuration? (FYI, I colored the white wire yellow so you could see it.)

The reason I ask is because, if my diagram above is okay, then I can just run one 3-wire NM cable between the outlet and the POW R2 which will give a cleaner appearance.

Thanks!
