Are DIN panels an option at all for ye?

Literally the only thing used here from a garden shed to a decent sized industrial install.


Panel is just a box and you install whoever's breakers you want on it, over time you could end up with half a dozen brands of breaker.

No, those breakers are not allowed.

The guy from the electric company should be here at 3 to talk over options. I am leaning toward a 200a service for the house and 200 for the garage, then run a 100a sub-panel to the pole-barn from the garage at some point.

Also consider a 240 volt Car charging Line.

Sounds like were going ahead with 2- 200a panels and a pole 3/4 of the way up the driveway.

That was the reasoning behind 200a to the garage. I doubt I'll ever have one, but you never know.

Sheez, 400a service, never thought I'd see it at home.

Is it all on one meter, or will you have two separate meter charges per month?

Sounded to me like 2 meters. He was going to go back and email me a write up. From the reading I've done, I'm not interested in buying a 400a box. $800 just for a main breaker!

Depending on the meter charge that $800 main may be the cheaper option.
