Spacing of Gas Lines from Electrical Panels

Posted by plumeriavine_2010 (My Page) on

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.

RE: Spacing of Gas Lines from Electrical Panels

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.
