Installing Home Electrical Wiring
Where do I attach the ground wire from the 4 wire cluster, on the neutral bar
Electrical Wiring for the Home
Question: My brother is putting in his new house. I am aware of electricity and have been working with it since I was little. But for some reason, when I went to wire in his meter box, I am drawing a blank.He ran 4 wire from the box to his house in conduit. In his meter box there is of course two hot places to attach the load wires and the neutral bar. Where do I attach the ground wire from the 4 wire cluster, on the neutral bar and also where do I attach the grounding cable? I know I am thinking this out too much, hopefully you can help clear my mind, any diagrams would help if you could. Thanks!
