Re: new guy here. signed up to ask a question about neutral and ground.
the NEC it the "national electrical code" it is the electrician's bible, and gives one the rules and tables, and the no no's in wiring, it is or a version of it is usually adopted by a state (come out ever three years), and is considered law, and if one was to pull a permit and an inspector comes by to inspect the job done, they would be using the NEC, that was adopted by the state or local jurisdiction, and if things were not done that the NEC said was to have been done or the wrong size or type of wire used, you would fail inspection and the power company would not hook up power to the building or place until all the problems were corrected. In some areas one can not sell a place or property until all things meet the code, in most locations to be legal one is to pull a permit before wiring and follow the inspection requirements, most allow one to do there own wiring, but the permit and inspection is usually required to meet state and local laws and usually the insurance company may require it as well, or they may not pay for a loss if it found to be caused by the wiring.
