The wording doesn't existHe keeps citing 250.119, but I find no wording in that section that restricts green to equipment grounding only. If anyone can cite specific code language that says you green can only be used for EGCs, I'd like to see it.
(C) Ungrounded Conductors. Conductors that are intended for use as ungrounded conductors, whether used as a single conductor or in multiconductor cables, shall be finished to be clearly distinguishable from grounded and grounding conductors. Distinguishing markings shall not conflict in any manner with the surface markings required by 310.11(B)(1).
That is the whole point of this thread. A number of "code experts" have stated that you cannot use green for the GEC. I'm just trying to point out that, while the code does not give a specific color requiremen for GECs, it likewise does not prohibit the use of green for the GEC.This meant EGC's as well as GEC's.
