hello gents,

Is there any specific standard prohibits using the electrical substations as storage area!!

Strange…..ha !!

Some electrician‘s are utilizing these substation as a store for their tools, boxes and materials. They are arguing not to move any tools because there is no standard.

Is this installation covered by the NEC (privately owned) or the NESC (utility owned)

I think you can enforce the working space rules. If the enclosure is large enough to maintain proper access, working space and still allow the tools inside I wouldn't have a problem with it. Otherwise it is the same as piling stuff in front of or blocking clear access to any other equipment. "Move it".
