This next equipment panel feeds the one above. It has a three wire feed with metal conduit from the service panel. Both EP's are in the same building (a garage). It also has grounds and neutrals bonded.
Here's my question.
The second panel pictured should have a grounding electrode system per 250.32A. Correct?
If the GES were installed at this EP, would separation of the grounds and neutrals still be required here?
The third EP was fed, as well, by three wires and metal conduit to another building approximately 200 feet away. It was an all metal building (a horse stable) bolted to a concrete foundation. No GES here either, but grounds and neutrals were separated. The box was attached directly to the metal bldg.
Would that constitute a GES?
This guy works for Southern CA Edison and tells me there are NO problems with his set up ![icon_confused.gif](upload://qv5zppiN69qCk2Y6JzaFYhrff8S.gif)
