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!

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.
