2014 Code Change 250.68(C)(3) Grounding Electrode Connection

Categories: News & Stuff


In the 2014 NEC they are going to allow us to extend the connection from Grounding Electrode (concrete encased electrode)

into a wall or above grade. In the past we could only have the conductor from the rebar extending out from the concrete

encasement, now we can have the rebar extend out from the encasement for a connection.  So this will work when the

town or city will not let you make this connection in the meter can, and you have a main breakers panel as your first means

of disconnect, you bond the neutral to this electrode in the wall near the panel if needed.  As you can see in the picture on the

right the connection has to be accessible.


Till next time be safe work safe.
