    I do not see how what you bolded relates to my question. :confused:

    An enhanced form of my question is: Show me in the current code where it says a single conductor shall not serve as both an EGC and a GEC.

      Well, I found this I hope it helps

      It was a response to questions beaten around back in the time of Bennie one such discussion can be found here

      I would like to know what you guys think

        I'm already on record as to what I think.

        The proposal cited is to relinquish the SDS GES requirement altogether for an SDS in the same structure as the service. I could have guessed that wouldn't "fly". However, note the Explanation of Negative.

          I guess it is really the same thing as you suggest with the idea of an equipment electrode conductor ,..isn't it ??

          The only reason to have a grounding electrode conductor is the grounding electrode ,.. yes??

          Anyway Don seems to have thought so (from the link)

          in response to Bennie asking why the transformer needs a grounding electrode

          Bennie,
          That is a very good question. I have submitted a proposal that would permit the primary EGC to also serve as the transformer secondary GEC where both the service disconnect and the transformer are located in the same building.
