When I had a new input circuit and service box input, no rods were used,
as against code. The grounding was a multipart, thos each wire large, from
the box out of the house folowing the conduir, then to ground about 3ft
deep to a horizontal plate. Yes, a horizontal plate, not a vertical rod.
So the debate on grounding grinds on.
