Ground/Neutral Question


Recommended Posts

Is that a fact? I always wondered why neutrals and grounds could be attached to the same bus bar, but not to the same terminal. I was mis-understanding this I guess. However, two neutrals in one terminal is an offense. Correct?

Yes, it's a fact. The UL standard for CTL panelboards has always prohibited this unless the terminal is marked for more than one grounded conductor (neutral).

Remember that neutral wires carry current during normal operation. Grounding wires do not.
