    A new resident of the US asks ....

    In the US are mains electricity circuits generally wired in a bus (i.e.
    chained from fuse board to one socket, then the next, until the last in the
    chain) or in a ring as in the UK?

    If the former, is there any thing (code?) that prevents the circuit being
    wired in a ring as in the UK.

    If a ring and a loop are the same thing then they do use this for hospitals
    and such to make sure one supply goes out you don't lose power.
