Where is the issue, the utility bonds the neutral at the pole runs a 3 wire to the house, you bond at the house. Here he has a 2-wire there is no parallel current unless as noted below.

For me I would prefer a grounded system.

Can you point to one problem with this set up IF there is no metallic connection (water or gas pipe most common) between the house and garage?

You would prefer an ungrounded system? As noted this was an accepted standard in the NEC, changed sometime last decade.

It is a grounded system! At the service disconnect. There's no reason to make it a grounded system in two different points! That's why the code updated! It is better to be grounded at one point rather than multiple! Earth gradians, objectionable current, touch potential!

No! There will be no objectionable currents UNLESS you agree every service in the US has objectionable current (which many due due to sharing metallic piping). Every service is grounded at the pole and in the residence and i many cases multiple residence. Do you agree with that statement?

You are saying you would prefer an ungrounded system?

It isn't objectionable if it's intended and for good reason. Making multiple loops on a single service was banned a decade ago. Why defend it?

Don't answer my question regarding safety and multiple grounded system on a single transformer is very common.


You have your opinion which is valid and I have mine that is valid. Take care.
