Default Need Help in Load Distribution using Busbars

Hi folks,

I am having an onsite issue where there are two electrical meters provided to my client. The two meters are of 150Amps(for SMDB1) and 60Amps(for SMDB2) capacity. However, the existing total loads (via the two SMDBs) are quite uneven. The load current of SMDB1 goes upto about 130A while the load current of SMDB2 barely touches 10A.
Is there any way I could distribute loads of these two SMDBs on to the two meters a bit more evenly? Perhaps by using a custom designed busbar to do so.

Please help.
