  1. Under article 230.43 of the NEC wiring methods for 600V, nominal, or less, what two wiring methods are not allowed for the service entrance conductors? What are they allowed for instead? Oregon Specialty Code 2011
    Type MC cable and FMC are limited to traffic control devices and highway lighting poles.
  2. Under 230.70A1 of the NEC an exception exists with Oregon specialty code what is this? Regarding service panel or meter base change out, and readily accessible locations. Oregon Specialty Code
    This states that basically in existing installations where only the service panel or meter base is changed and existing service conductors, or the existing conduit is of sufficient size to install new conductors the panel may remain at the present location providing all requirements (space about equipment and over-current protection) are met and does not require a main disconnect located nearest point of entry.
  3. NEC 250.24A1 states the grounding electrode conductor connection shall be made at any accessible point from the load and of the service drop for service lateral to and including the terminal or bus to which the grounded service conductor is connected at the service disconnecting means. Oregon specially code amends this how? Oregon Specialty Code 2011
    When the election utility has installed a GFP system at the customer service equipment no bonding or electrical connection from the ground electrode system shall be made to the grounded service conductor on the load side of utility ground fault sensing device. Warning signs shall be posted.
  4. NEC 250.32 buildings or structures supplied by a feeder or branch circuits, is amended by the Oregon specialty code to allow what exception? Oregon Specialty Code 2011

    In an existing electrical installation, when a service change or upgrade occurs, an existing metal underground water-pipe shall not be used unless the metal underground water pipe has been verified and suitable for continued use As a grounding electrode, an existing metal underground water pipe shall be bonded to the new grounding electrode system as required by 250.104a
  7. OESC 250.94 allows what be used for an intersystem bonding termination, provided externally to enclosures at the service equipment or metering equipment enclosure and at the disconnecting means for any additional buildings or structures.

  8. OESC 250.118(14) where metallic conduit is installed on rooftops what will be done?
