What Is a Ground Fault?
Electricity is a form of energy that exists due to unbalanced charges in electrons and protons in a conducting material. This energy flows because of a natural impulse to return neutral balance to the unbalanced charges in the atomic particles. In residential wiring circuits, this flow of electricity is conducted through established metal circuit wires. The natural impulse of electricity—the goal of its flow— is to "return to ground" in order to equalize the uneven charge.
