What would you have done different?? I ask, as its the first subpanel that i've put in and I'm happy to learn what I should do different in the next one...

Can someone paste the NEC code relating to grounding of a subpanel? Is the main panel ground wire sufficient or does the OP need another ground wire to the grounding rod?

As far as I understand the NEC, as its in the same building (20 feet away), I don't need anything other than a main panel ground.

No ground rod is needed in an attached building.

A ground rod serves no purpose in clearing a fault...
