Inspector said no Can't find in NEC
I am building an "addition" to our existing house...it is more of an attached house (for an aging family member).
I have to upgrade the service to 400a where the new "house" gets it's own 200a panel. The existing service and panel are installed on a bedroom wall...my wife has expressed concern about EMF with regard to the main power proximity to a sleeping area.
There is a well house (7x7x7) about 15' from the house (and that much closer to the power pole). I wanted to mount the base and disconnects on it. This distance also removes some of the EMF issue. The inspector insist this cannot be done whereas there is no issue to mount everything on the house in the same configuration. He referenced 225.30 and up NEC (2005). I have NEC 2011 and I cannot understand, or find, where it is specifically stated that this method is wrong. I understand the disconnects have to be grouped and that the panels are now subpanels. This idea also makes sense because the new position is shaded where the house position is in full sun. Cooler equipment....
Is this worth disputing?
I appreciate any help
