Double Tap residential service panel
I have a question.
With the recent changes in the NEC.. I seen that NEC article 312.8 was revised as to remove the wording that states, If adequate space is available or something to that nature and all conductors in the panel must TERMINATE in the panel.
My Question is..
I have a double tap on a breaker that is not for 2 conductor use, and I was wondering can I still use a pigtail off the breaker as a single conductor and wire nut it to the other two wires that I removed from the breaker and it is still a legal connection with the new verbage in NEC ???
or is that prohibited under the new guidelines ?
The only place I can see any referance of this change is out of TEXAS, nowhere else.
Is that a tecas state revisionthat they did or is it a real modification of the NEC for 2009 ???
Anyway.. can I still do the Pig tail and wire nut connection to fix the double tap violation ???
