Believe it or not, the use of extension cords on a permanent electrical fixture is actually (and unfortunately) common to see on home inspections some days. An extension cord in this situation is very dangerous. They are made for temporary use and extension of electrical power, not for extended use to wire a permanent fixture.

It makes it especially dangerous that the wire is outside the building, not protected, and not even fully put into the wire casing.
Using anything outside of its designed format is generally not a good idea, but especially not anything electrical.
