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.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
