Spacing of Gas Lines from Electrical Panels

plumeriavine_2010February 18, 2010

Back in January, one inspector noted that there was a new gas line encroaching on a sub panel.

Does anyone know what distances between the gas line and the sub panel should be?

The plumbers will have to do the correction.

I'll try to post a pic later.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Those specifications are part of the fuel gas codes, not the electrical codes. Gas codes may vary depending on the jurisdiction. In my area, the required distance from an electrical panel to a gas fitting (not a gas line) is 4 feet.
