    Greetings CQD.

    Thank you for the excellent forum dealing with such various Code questions and information. My question is fairly easy, I think. If a brand new home is constructed and the grounding electrode is a concrete-encased (ufer ground) electrode, is a ground rod or two ground rods required as well?

    Your opinion will help with some local discussions on this subject.
