Can a circuit breaker box with 12 positions have six

Customer Question

Hi. Can a circuit breaker box with 12 positions have six breakers for one apartment and six breakers for a second apartment, and be sourced with electricity from two separate meters for two separate apartments? Or is there some rule that says "one meter must have one breaker box exclusively"? Thanks!

Hi Scott, welcome to

Panels are not designed to allow for two separate feeds as would be required in the option you have in mind.

A separate panel is required for each meter.

Thank you
