I inspected a home yesterday that had a new panel installed and all new grounded recptacles. Everything looked fine in the panel box , all new 2 strand NM with ground. When I tested the receptacles throughout the home, they all had open grounds. I pulled a few covers of the receptacles and could not see a ground wire. Also there were no GFCI’s on the kitchen or exterior receptacles. I wrote this up and recommended a licensed electrician to come evaluate and clear problems. Am I missing something here or was a lot of work done only to not go the extra step to properly ground the receptacles? The bus in the panel was grounded correctly and all else was nice but I was just wondering why new wire with ground and so many open receptacles???
