drawings/information in electrical drawings and specifications. Power will be terminated to
a panel within or near the enclosure. The Installer shall be responsible for termination and
distribution electrical power from the panel to the equipment as required (including load
center, breakers, etc.). This will include necessary conduit and cabling as required for a
complete installation.
2.
A ground point will be provided in each equipment room or enclosure electrical panel. The
Installer shall be responsible for connecting ground point to all equipment in accordance
with NEC code, local codes and standards specified herein.
