meeter base ground wire
had to replace my weatherhead and meeter base,the inspector said the ground wire had to be a one piece bare #4 copper, i plan to take care of this myself, i know the copper must be connected to two grounding rods six feet apart drove in the ground eight feet, my question is does it stop inside the meeter base?

Re: meeter base ground wire
This question should go to your inspector or a qualified electrician. But I think its safe to quote the code section to you:
Code says: "A grounding electrode conductor shall be connected between the grounded conductor in the service equipment disconnecting means enclosure and the grounding electrode system."
Some electricity suppliers have additional requirements/ restrictions that you should check into.
