Re: Why only 1 ground terminal and 2 hot/neutral on receptacles?

So there are no ground loops.

Metal boxes or plastic? If they are metal, have you thought about using self-grounding receptacles? Then you wouldn't have to run a ground wire from the box to the receptacle.

No ground loops!!

Try as I might, my OCD keeps me from eliminating the damn grounding jumper when using self-grounding devices.
