In A Typical Home Electrical Panel Installation The Main Ground Wire Is Connected Directly From A Ground Rod Driven Into The Ground To The What?
You need to check with the Electrical Inspector, or a local electrician, as it varies from state to state, etc. I moved from an area where the ground went from the ground rod to the panel neutral, and ground. Where I now live, the Electrical utility wants it on the neutral at the meter base, and then all the equipment bonded together.
The ground wire comes from the ground rod and goes to the grounding lug inside the service panel. It looks like a long silver strip of screws. The wire goes in the big screw.
