230.70 Service Disconnect - General

New text was added and it reads:

(A) Location of Service Disconnecting Means

(3) Remote Control. Where a remote control device is used to actuate the service disconnecting means, the service disconnections means must be located at a readily accessible location in accordance with 230.70(A)(1).

Intent: This new rule clarifies that a remote control device such as a shunt-trip pushbutton can be used to control the service disconnecting means, but the disconnecting means must still be located at a readily accessible location either outside the building or structure, or nearest the point of entry of the service conductors in accordance with 230.70(A)(1).
