He, the HO decided that this was beyond his capabilities so he hired a EC to correct this situation and it was corrected. Previous to the picture posted, there we no boxes and three conductors to the panel with the neutral splitbolted to a 4/0 green conductor and the ECG cut off at the SER jacket. Didn't have a camera that day.

What about Sections 300.3 and 300.30? Wouldn't splicing those conductors in the manner shown lead to the heating up that metal box containing only a phase conductor and a ground?

I'm seeing a box fill problem here, and I agree with what wire_twister said.

I have a sense of adventure, I just keep it leashed with common sense.
