A good electrical conductivity is the same as a small electrical resistance. An electric current will flow through all metals, however they still have some resistance, meaning the current needs to be pushed (by a battery) in order to keep flowing. The bigger the resistance, the smaller the current is. Current flows easily through copper because it has very low electrical resistance, without much loss of energy. This is why copper wires are used in mains cables in houses and underground (although overhead cables tend be aluminium because it is less dense). Thick copper strip is used for lightning conductors on tall buildings. The copper strip has to be thick so that it can carry a large current without melting.

Copper strips are required to connect copper terminal earth electrodes made by us to equipments or neutral of the transformer or DG set. GI strips are not preferred with copper terminations as the dissimilar metals connection create an additional resistance and in turn heating.
