If lightning directly strikes the house, it will cause massive structural damage regardless of the CEE. If you see pictures of houses that get struck by lightning, they look like a bomb went off in the attic. Now, the concrete may get damaged also, but I think that would be the least of your worries.POCO wants a ground rod to the meter socket. So I'm forced to oblige.
Here they tie a piece of rebar to the footing ufer and run the rebar vertical through the top of the poured foundation and the sparky's tie a grounding clamp to the rebar for the GC. A friend of mine Said, "I wouldn't want that house!" he said if lightning hits the house it could send the energy through the poured concrete foundation wall and if there's enough electrical charge it could blow the wall out or crack the wall. Do you think there's any truth to that?
