    Would you prefer a pink or purple GEC? Personally I think a bright yellow makes a bold statement.

    No, I spec pink and purple for switch legs.
    The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain

    I think the electrons will know exactly what to do when they see the color of the insulation.

    I am not sure I see anything for sure wrong with what they did code wise.

    Really? Separate ground. If a fault to ground occurs the path back to source is through the concrete rebar, to path of least resistance. Maybe to the ground rod. How soon would the breaker trip? May never trip. Let's see how long it takes to melt the breaker.

    I figured it was a 250.30 grounding electrode connection.
    250.64(E)(1) requires bonding, like a grounding bushing.

    Well, that makes a big difference. So, then we just have an auxiliary GEC and electrode for the panel. Probably useless, but legal.
