Added bus bar

Recommended Posts

Hi Trent. If only the grounding wires went to that extra bus, it would be good to go. That is how it is done here, ground wires to the back of the panel. However, I'd prefer to see all the neutrals going only to the neutral bus, the most direct route back to the source.

As John said, if only grounding wires landed on the bar, it would require no jumper. 

However, I see one neutral wire on it. Per 200.2(B), you're not supposed to rely on the enclosure to carry the neutral current. So they should either limit that bar to grounding wires only or run a jumper to it.
