Re: Egc bond bushing for main service meter?
Posted by gfretwell:
We have the same thing here but it is the AHJ who has the opinion. Down in the county south of me, the GEG usually lands in the meter can. Up here they want it in the service disconnect enclosure although the code allows it either way.

I didn't chime in before because I'm not familiar with the panel you mention. I have made many repairs to Pyrotronics System 3, 35, XL3, and MXL systems though. I've also removed several problems installed by licensed and certified contractors. I recently cleared 300 troubles from an MXL (...)
