    I believe that MN adopts the NEC in its entirety without amendments.

    But the point is that the NEC is ambiguous. Florida adopts the NEC and doesn't allow local jurisdictions to pass any rules more or less stringent than the code. The allowance for the code we are discussing changes from one jurisdiction to another because the NEC doesn't give a definitive distance.


    I know what I don't know, and I know where to go to find it!

    I understand that, that is why I responded to Charlie that the OP would not find a definitive answer in any MN code.

    Around here you can do a panel swap with no permit, unless the HO wants one. The poco will allow you to pull the meter and put it back in. If it is locked they will unlock it for you. You do need to have an E1 (unlimited electrical contractor) liscense.
