double ground wires

Recommended Posts

This is the first time I've seen this. Why would they run two ground wires from the neutral/ground buss to separate grounding rods? The two ground rods were about 4' apart.

I don't know why but I can't load the picture. I've done it before. My wife the computer guru, is not home.

Maybe it was easier than having a jumper between the two rods. Nothing wrong with this method. The problem is the rods should be no closer than 6' to each other.

If there was no access to a water service for grounding water service that is the way to do it,called a redundent ground.

You normally see things like that on a detached garage with seperate electrical service
