    Gentlemen, I’m hoping you can help with an opinion.

    As you seem to understand how to apply the NEC rules from a practical viewpoint. Section 230.72 indicates the two to six service disconnects permitted in Section 230.71 must be grouped. There is no maximum distance on between the two to six disconnects, so how far is too far before the installation would not meet the grouping requirement. Could signage be installed to assist in meeting the grouping requirement? Any opinions would be very appreciated.
