Loc: Reno,Nv., USA
I believe that the NEC requires switchboards/switchgear to be in dedicated spaces.... The hazard presented is the risk of condensation forming & then dripping into the gear. If you're in Reno for the NFPA conference, you might ask the Atlantis casino about the drain they ran over their gear- they blew a breaker that cost them 20K, and a poco transformer as well, darkening part of the town.
