I don't recommend using it at this point in time:
Electrical Service Grounding Option: The Steel Rebar 'Sticking-Out' Method? | Electrical Contractor Magazine
Great article Nick!
Why not? Perhaps we should add another paragraph to the code to allow for another resi-jerry-rig! Clamping a cable to a rebar is nothing but a foolish, short-lived, insecure, quickly corroding and poorly conducting assembly, as can be seen from a distance by even the uninitiated.
Too bad no one can trust some kid, paid barely more than minimum wage, that wires houses, to successfully perform an exothermic weld!
Maybe I should get some Mexican or Chinaman to cadweld 8' groundrods and chunks of rebar to 3 meter tails and sell them as grounding electrode assemblies in this country! Now THAT's how we do 'lectric work in the 21st century in this great land!!!
