I could connect the green wire without going through the CM choke, though it would be redundant. Including that wire in the choke would short it out, making it ineffective on the hot and neutral wires. I can see how this could be a problem with other equipment which has a direct ground connection in addition to the green wire. In such cases, if there’s RFI on the green wire, it probably should have a separate choke. Thankfully, I’ve never had to deal with that.


Go back and read my previous post on this. What you are doing is unsafe 
and illegal. By LAW, the green wire MUST be run with the phase and 
neutral conductors to the equipment.
