Lemonhawk is complely correct. I ordered Wago 222-413 Lever Nuts. https://www.amazon.com/WAGO-222-413-...locint=&hvlocpThey cost $0.26 each in packs of 100. It would require 2 wire nuts to complete the connection and they cost about $0.08 each (or $0.16 for each connection) in quantities of 100. For $0.10 more for each connection they are really worth it to me. By the way, they are much easier to use than wire nuts and they make easy, completely solid, fully insulated and reusable connections.

Thank you Lemonhawk for bringing this to my attention.

Way better than wire nuts! I'm also thinking of using their Luminare connecters to run the bus and feeders.

I wouldn't trust a compression type connection for the long term. Soldering is the only for sure way.
