    Hello all, I have a new storage building at a local high school being fed from an existing panel in the school. The engineer had me pull a grounding conductor in with the feeders, but my inspector is saying I need to bond my neutral at the disconnect for the new building.... my take is that the neutral is already bonded at the main switchgear for the school and bonding the neutral again would cause the grounding conductor to be a parallel run with the neutral back to the panel the building is fed from (not the switchgear). For this on whether or not the neutral should be bonded at the new building and if so, should I eliminate the ground I pulled in with the feeders...

    Fyi the service is  225A 480/277V 3 phase 4 wire, not that that should change anything.

    Thank you,

    Jeremy Buxman
