    My perspective is the biggest threat to a good ground is a corroded connection, 20 years after the fact. That's why I preferred welded connections.

    CADWELD & PGE

    I was working on a job in NoCal where we'd be fed 3-ph by PGE.

    Seems like every brand name I've heard of has been assimilated.
