all 3 panels are in the basement side by side.
I will have to buy the meter socket and that are approved by the power company.(MILBANK)
I do not have the calculated load, because the building is being fed with # XXXXX wire now.
It's a very small place.Each apartment is 10 by 30 , 2 floors each and all gas appliances and no air. by code the smallest service for each apt will be 100amp.
The 60 amp panel will be for some general outlet and basement light.(2 100w bulbs)
no I did not yet to a inspector
I knpw the rules are different between us and power companys, 200 amp total for this place is way more then they will ever use. I'm tring to keep cost down for the little old lady
how do I split this 200 amp service 3 way?
I guess my question is, the meter socket kit is rated at 200 amp total and each meter socket is rated at 100 amp. By putting 3 panels in the basement side by side,
100amp,100amp and a 60 amp that total adds up to 260amps. they will never use it but 260amps is more then the meter socket kit ir rated for. how can that be ok. there is no main breaker, this falls under the 6 throw rule.
