Running condiut inquiry


Hi,
Can anybody tell me if there are codes or rules of thumb that do not allow electrical cable inside conduit to run parallel,
IE ....(along side of and taking the same route)
as the natural gas line of a residence to get to its termination point?

Depends, define your install with a little more detail.

No, and there would be no reason for such a rule. What's your concern?

No concern ,really. I just like making sure on most things. Didn't think it would matter whatsoever..but there is no harm in getting input from those with more knowledge on issues that could go in any direction.thanks.

Most utilities require a 3' separation.

To be more specific...I am not talking about outside or underground. Still a 3 foot separation? This is planning the shortest route for a possible gas/LP generator purchase.

Probably not, what did your inspector say? Local amendments may apply.

I assumed this was in a building, not the incoming utility trench.
