This topic is in another thread in members only. I’d like to know electricians view (opinion) regarding this.
Isn’t this always required?..…EGC’s must be bonded to the cabinets, and the neutrals must be isolated from the cabinet - the neutrals must not be grounded at any point past the service equipment.
At an inspection yesterday I found this service, that was installed by a reputable licensed local electrical contractor.
4-unit building…disconnect(s) outside at meter…panels located in basement…4-wire feed…bonding strap…neutrals and grounds not separated…all 4 panels wired the same (2 examples). (Photos)
A comment in this thread by a very knowledgeable and experienced inspector was;
I see this a lot on condos, townhomes, etc. Disconnect outside by meter, but a panel in unit with its own disconnect AND the neutrals / grounds on same buss.
Local electrician or code guy DO NOT look at the inside panel as a SUB. They consider it the MAIN and the outside DISCONNECT just a COURTESY switch.
All opinions welcomed.
