Ungrounded Wiring at Junction Box

For the new inspectors don’t assume because there is a new electrical panel all the wiring is new or grounded. The photo below shows new grounded yellow wiring from the new electrical panel spliced into the older black ungrounded wiring at a junction box. This is common on most of the older houses (pre 1963) with a newer electrical panel.


I wonder what they did with the EGC’s in the junction box.

Cut them off

That’s why I asked. :slightly_smiling_face:
