The National Electrical Code (NEC) sets the gold standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States. Understanding and abiding by its guidelines could mean the difference between coming home safe at the end of the day or not coming home at all. Because the Code is so important to electrical professionals, EC&M readers continually rank the NEC as their top area of interest.
