Isn't it incorrect to have the ground spliced in with the insulated neutrals?

on Apr 23, 2017

Ground and Neutral are to be connected at the first point of disconnect, such as the service panel (not subpanels), then never anywhere in the system past that point.

This permits ground sufficient ampacity to cause overcurrent protection to work in the event of a ground fault, while also zeroing out any voltage on neutral, which could be anywhere up to twenty plus volts differential from ground, depending on the source, and its relative location.

Connecting ground to neutral after this could lead to unwanted voltages in the ground paths of the system, particularly if other wiring becomes damaged, or is disconnected. This could create shock hazards in unexpected locations.
