    I have a building that was built in the 70s or 80s that was closed and had the meter removed for several years. I want to get service reconnected, so the utility said it needed a EGC and proper bonding. I put in two grounding rods that are properly spaced and ran a #6 continuous bare wire up to...

    I got a call to look at a problem (I’d never been there before), where someone had felt a tingle between the ground (dirt, earth) and the metal frame of a trailer on tires with a sub panel in it. I didn’t have a ground rod or plate with me, but I put a piece of rebar in the ground and measured...
