I am looking at the code for grounding and lightning protection around propane tanks.

Can someone provide direction.


TIA,

John

Just make sure that whatever you do is connected to the building grounding electrode system.

Reading NEC 2002 Article 501.16, NFPA 58 (Liquified Petroleum Gas Code) and NFPA 77 (Recommended Practice on Static Electricity), I have a couple of questions.

1. For the propane tank and the related concrete pad, is it a requirement to run a ground loop?

2. Is bonding required between the propane tank and the delivery vehicle?


TIA,

John
