Although this graphic is not about bonding of service raceways, I feel it lacks a lot to be desired.
Remember that you can identify the wire run from the system bonding point to one electrode as the GEC, with all the other runs being bonding jumpers, which do not need to be continuous with the GEC.Is it permissible to have the GEC to not be continuous on a communication system? What if you had a fitting listed for termination of more than one conductor?. I’m just curious.
I tend to agree. One GEC to one electrode is the simplest possible form of GES. If there is an earth electrode that is not part of a GES, it is not a grounding electrode, IMHO.If there is a GEC or grounding electrode present, isn't there also going to be a GES present?
Seems the "(where present)" is redundant to me.
