Copper Countertop Electrical Outlet

mcleroyOctober 17, 2008

Am installing copper countertop on island that is 48" x 96" with electrical outlets on either side.

Do I have to ground it some way? How to do?

Thanks

The outlets will have their own ground, and anything plugged into them will be grounded (if it has a 3 prong plug).

The outlets will also have a GFCI that will detect any current leakage.

The general rule is that metal 'likely to become electrified' needs grounding.

A counter is NOT in this class.
