I am installing a 125 AMP OUTDOOR MAIN LUG LOAD CENTER which will be protected by a 100Amp CB. The panel will support all the equipment for an inground pool. I have installed the pvc conduit underground approx 24"and will be pulling three number two copper conductors and a #6 EGC copper.
I have the 5/8 copper rod for the Grounding Electrode. Since my largest current carrying conductor is #2; the code calls for #8 Grounding Electrode conductor. My question is, does the GEconductor need to insulated or can bare copper conductor be used. I have been all through article 680 and can't find the exact info on this.
