Why are you only allowed to run 2 branch circuits to a garage where someone forgot to bond the rebar eliminating the possibility of a sub panel?? Why not 1 or 3 or 5 ??? Why 2 ??
Run 10 there is nothing wrong with it,you just can't have less than 2.

I guess the inspector dropped ball on the ufer. Ask him to fix it since its his fault.
It aint gonna happen. I"m just going to run schedule 80 1" pvc, pull 2-20 amp circuits. Once inpection passes, pull out 2 circuits and pull back through a 60 amp feeder for sub panel :jester:

One ground rod and Bam! That is all that is required for a separate structure.

Clete, it's not 2 circuits. It's a two wire or MWBC with equipment ground that is exempt from having an electrode at the garage.

But i guess you're ask'n why can't you run 5 or 6 two wire circuits, and hell may as well throw in a 240v circuit in a conduit out to a j- box and just wire nut it all together?
