Im putting two disconnects side by side connected with a 2" nipple next to a two gang meter base. When I run the GEC to the first disconnect, can I then run the GEC through the nipple into the other disconnect? The nipple will have the service conductors in there as well. Or, can the nipple act as the ground?

I thought the exception said grounding and bonding conductors can be.
You are right, I was wrong.

I thought the exceptions were limited to EGCs not GECs but ...

Grounding Conductor. A conductor used to connect equipment or the grounded circuit of a wiring system to a grounding electrode or electrodes.

A warning-- Around here we often use solid copper and I got call on 310.106(C). I can see if this was a long run with bends but a short nipple...gee wiz.
