Electrical – Should I connect one or both Ufer grounds to the panel


Local code requires the use of a Ufer ground (concrete-encased electrode) as a ground rod system for new construction. There are two electrodes in my construction. My question is: do I connect both electrodes with a single conductor to my sub panel or just one of the electrodes?

Best Answer

You only have to bond the closest one to the panel. NEC 250.52.a.3.2. (2017) same in the 2014 code.
