Would you accept the SE conductors to be run in the building or outside the building?As much as I don't care for the idea, I believe 230.40 Exception #1 and 230.71 allow for a service disconnect in each occupancy as long as each location meets the requiremts of 230.70, etc.
only outside...230.70(A)(1) would apply to each unit.Would you accept the SE conductors to be run in the building or outside the building?
Are you saying the method mentioned by Augie is not permissible for multitenant apartment building?
Building. A structure that stands alone or that is cut off from adjoining structures by fire walls with all openings therein protected by approved fire doors.
All I was saying is the code allows both, 230.40 Exception(1) is a permission to allow each unit to be fed by service entrance conductors from one service,230.2 Number of Services.
A building or other structure served shall be supplied by only one service unless permitted in 230.2(A) through (D). For the purpose of 230.40, Exception No. 2 only, underground sets of conductors, 1/0 AWG and larger, running to the same location and connected together at their supply end but not connected together at their load end shall be considered to be supplying one service.
