Question: Can I pull a load circuit (2wires) through the same conduit as the incoming main service wires
example- I need to run a conduit on the outside of the house; the only way to get to the breaker box is to run the conduit to the overhead meter socket then run the wires through the conduit running from the meter socket to the breaker panel in the house with the service wires from the meter socket to the breaker panel
Thanks for your electrical question.
Hi Tim – NEC Article 230-7 states that the Feeder and Branch circuit conductors are not permitted in the same conduit or raceway with the service conductors.
