So just to clarify...

2005- #2 SER 90 amp breaker
2008- #2 SER 75 amp breaker
2011- #2 SER 90 amp breaker

and you wonder why people are confused.

LOL, you mean 2014? I don't think they have any plans on advancing... We do have a few state amendments, but not much.

no reason too... nothing wrong with the 2005. I hear bits and pieces, but in reality, if they didn't jump on the 2011 band wagon, I don't see a reason to accept the 2014...

You mean that buildings won't suddenly start burning down if they don't confirm to the newest code?!?!?! You must be crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



We all know that code updates are mainly to add more design rules and bogus safety rules in order to make the manufacturers money. Everything from AFCI's to requiring neutrals in every switchbox.

Exactly, I'm glad the state of CT is smart enough to not hop on the band wagon... it saves our customers thousands of dollars.

although, I'm kind of fond of the neutral rule, I do a lot of Radio Ra 2 work, and i can't lie, its nice to have a neutral already in a box when needed.

I'd prefer to make a couple hundred extra bucks running out a new cable to the box
