Acorns in the main panel?

Found this in the main panel. Brand new Texas build. D-box?

Wire nut is okay in there if appropriate number/size of wires per nut are used. :slight_smile:

Are you saying there is an issue or asking if there is one?

Acorns are the connector used on ground rods to clamp the gec to the rod. Your picture shows wire nuts.

your recent posts are prime examples of why trec licensing does not assure competency & why you should not be performing new construction inspections or possibly any inspections for a fee

Splices are permitted in panels. What is D-box?

Wire nuts are ok to use in electrical panel.

This to me is just another inspector who is likely not going to last three years .
