    My code book was written by the inventor, Morris the cat.

    He has a great paw.

    Neutral bonding rules

    If you have a sub panel connected to your main panel with the wattmeter, etc. you need to have the fourth wire, green ground, to the ground bar in the sub panel, NO BOND to the neutral, ground loop guaranteed if you do. If your shack is a separate building, then the panel has in addition to the fourth wire, a separate ground rod for this panel installed, still NO BOND to the neutral.
    This arrangement has been standard for many years, and has been interpreted even longer. The current NEC calls for things as I have described. A word about the NEC and any kind of interpretation. The code only changes when someone has gotten hurt or worse due to a fault they found in a particular installation. Rick Shoop AG6KL, Electrical Contractor CA cont #842202

    The correct designation is NM cable, or non-metallic sheathed cable.
