    Default Bundled Grounds

    In a 4 year old home I found several instances where 3 grounds were secured under the same terminal screw. I did not find any info on the label that said this was allowed or prohibited by the panel manufacturer (GE). The wires bundled together all appeared to be the same gauges. I'd heard that 2 bundled were OK but 3 never. Should I write this up?
    PS Sory for the lousy photo.

    Most newer panels will accept up to three grounds of the same size. Typically only #14 & #12.

    Not a GE panel, but it is OK on this particular one. If you are looking for specifics, get ahold of GE.
