Read Through Recent Electrical Code Updates

The most recent NEC update was in 2020. The most important updates to residential customers were the following:

  • Exterior emergency power disconnect switches must be installed at all new one- and two-family dwellings. This measure is intended to make working conditions safer for emergency responders.
  • Service disconnect rules concerning de-energizing panel boards have been altered to improve electrical worker safety; that includes your local Mr. Electric.
  • Load calculation tables have been revised to reflect modern improvements in energy efficiency. The change is largely due to the widespread use of LED lighting, which is drastically more energy-efficient than older bulb types.
  • A new general requirement has been instituted to cover cables exposed on ceilings and walls.
  • Requirements for GFCI protection have expanded to include all 125- and 250-volt receptacles supplied by a single-phase circuit of 150 volts or less to ground.
  • All basement receptacles must also have GFCI protection, regardless of whether the basement is finished.
  • A new section has been added governing the use of modern Ethernet cables that transmit data and electrical power simultaneously.
  • Requirements for solar-generated energy storage continue to be revised to keep pace with evolving home energy storage technologies, such as the Tesla Powerwall home battery.
  • Surge protection requirements have been enhanced to protect sensitive safety equipment, such as hard-wired smoke alarms.
  • A new item in the code governs how homeowners may transfer power from electric vehicle (EV) batteries to residential wiring.
  • Before any electrician obtains a professional license, they must spend years studying and practicing NEC safety standards.
