Ground rod and UFER
I am installing a combo meter panel on my new construction house. I ran a UFER ground and the rebar is in the exterior wall stud cavity. The panel is surface mounted and the utility requires a ground rod as well. Do I have to have the ground wire run from the rod (through the panel for convenience) to the UFER and then to the grounding lug as a continuous wire, or can I run a separate wire form each to the ground lug?
