    In this photo if one considers the two pieces of strut banged into the earth to be a structure then this is a violation because a single structure cannot have two branch circuits run to.

    I get it but that is not what I was talking about. You don't have a panel so no electrodes are needed.

    But do you agree that you need the panel attached to a separate structure first to require the GES?

    Imo, the panel must be attached to something- call it a structure or whatever- and therefore needs the electrode(s). A post is a structure. I may write a proposal that states if a panelboard is mounted remotely then it needs electrodes.

    That would end the confusion with whether or not it mounted to a structure when on a piece of strut or a post. Also that would include a panel mounted to a tree which does not meet the NEC definition of a structure.

    Would this also apply to Recreational Vehicle Site Supply Equipment as described in 551.2 Definitions?
