Default Solar Power line side tap.

I am not too familiar with Solar installations, is it normal (legal?) to see the AC side of the solar array come right out of a fused disconnect and feed the Main Panel located next to it via a line side tap between the meter and main?

Check your POCO specs, ours have their own rules on how they want it done. It also depends in the panel, some don't heve the room for a LST. Here is a good article on the subject.
