properly grounding new incoming electrical service


Is it a new law in Kentucky to run the ground wire from the meter to the re-bar in the footer of a double wide house?

You are talking about a Ufer ground. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ufer_ground It has been around since WWII.

Kinda but generally for new construction Ouias { yeah } they do ( for the Ufer ) but for exsting location for new service that depending on the AJH or inspector to say.

The double wide which you are refering to the mobile home or modular home? that part will make the differnce on how to deal with the code.

I know couple KY electricians I can talk to them and see what they have to say with their codes. then I can post the answer.

Merci,
Marc
