            Welcome, eh!

            The hosers that picked the LV colors for Austin must have been from the Great White North.

            Supposedly, its because the city owned electrical utility delivers power "CBA".


            CANADIAN WIRE COLOR CODES FOR AC POWER
            In Canada, wire color coding standards are set by the Canadian Electric Code (CEC). The color code for AC power wiring is similar to the code used in the United States (and the same as Austin, TX):

            Phase 1 - Red
            Phase 2 - Black
            Phase 3 - Blue
            Neutral - White
            Ground - Green with Yellow Stripe

              Looking forward to seeing what topics are of current interest and concern up there.

                  Pot lights.

                  Not to be confused with grow lights.

                    They also use the same colors for 347/600 and 120/208.

                      All I know about Canadian wiring practices is they use this stuff called Tek cable. Sounds like coated MC?

                        They also have what I like to call "DC Romex" with black and red conductors.

                            Can we now create a UK/BS7671 forum? We're excluding half the English speaking world without it.
                            Our comedian shamelessly joked about a blackout. Talk about dark humor.
