Underground Wires + Bare Ground Condutor, entering building

1

These buildings with underground roof and walls are rationally advantageous at a financial point of view, as at the construction period as in the future. Almost everyone can afford to build an underground house. The main thing is to keep all technological standards and the high quality of environment will be provided within the home.

Due to the temperature soil characteristics, it is possible to save on the energy consumed for room heating. The soil is a poor conductor of heat, but it keeps it well. In this way, all the temperature changes that occur on the ground surface and in the air for a long time pass through the soil thickness to the underground home.

Locations for underground houses construction

The most favorable location for the construction is considered the hill top. This is the highest point of a relief that will prevent the seepage of groundwater into the house. Windows can be also placed on all four sides of the world if the habitation is...

Understanding the ups and downs of building underground

Has the idea of living in an underground home tempted you?

If so, you’re part of a growing minority. More and more people, worldwide, have already or plan to build an earth-sheltered or earth-bermed home. Earth-sheltered homes usually have their tops and sides completely covered with earth, while earth-bermed homes usually have an exposed side and roof.

Many underground enthusiasts join local and international organizations for support, ideas and information. Most of these enthusiasts and their groups can readily spiel off what they see as the advantages of an underground lifestyle, and, surprisingly to some, our own U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) agrees.

Advantages

Conservative energy use tops just about everyone’s list. The DOE says, “An earth-sheltered home is less susceptible to the impact of extreme outdoor air temperatures, so you won’t feel the effects of adverse weather as much as...

I was hoping for more time to organize our rebellion, but it's clear we cannot delay. Once you secure the Railroad against the Brotherhood, tell your people we are ready to fight. Go now.

After the Sole Survivor gets into the Institute, the Railroad wants them to make contact with an anonymous person inside, nicknamed Patriot, who has been helping synths escape. Tinker Tom provides the encrypted message holotape that will upload a message for Patriot to the Institute's network in the hopes that Patriot sees it and comes forward to identify themselves.

Speedy, that is at the crux of my confusion. YES, ABSOLUTELY, I would give the EGC a slightly higher chance of getting wet during rain.

And I'm not finding your comments rude, as those quoted aren't my words. However, that's just one of several sites I've found that explains why Romex can't be used outdoors, and they all claim that it's because of the bare copper grounding wire.

Now that that's settled, what is the theory behind NM not being rated for wet conditions? Obviously, there's a good reason, based on safety, why the NEC prohibits underground running of Romex. If the problem is with the outer sheath deteriorating and causing some sort of problem, why can't we simply peel off the outer sheath, run them as individual THHN/THWN, and run them underground, in conduit?

Please don't tell me that it's because the UL and Code says so. Please help me understand WHY the UL and code says...
