Before I start on the project, I wanted to share this.
So I finally go a photo of one of the Widows that have been invading my trenches. She not very big, just a yearling, barely out of her spots and into her black coat.
Anyway, I finally picked up the right length of 1/0 stranded bare copper wire/cable. The first piece was about 4 or 5 feet short and by code you cannot splice a ground, especially coming off of your main service panel.
The most difficult part of running the bare 1/0 was getting it to thread into the next run of 6 foot conduit that linked the two ground rods together. Because of the ground rod clamps there was some vertical variation. Getting the cable to bend that way was tough.
But it all worked out very nicely in the end. Now the panel is safe and code compliant!
Then I woke up one morning and I heard and felt “DUN DUN DUN!” Jack Frost had arrived! And all I could think was, “O man, I still have so much work to do!”
Thanks again for your interest!
