Square D 400A Main : Conversion multi family to single
I have a question on a 400A 3-meter main. A previous electrician installed this Square D main (excellent job). A few years have passed and the general contractor I work with is now remodeling the same house. It is a 3 family residence-3 meters.
The Gen B has told me they want to convert the 400A Square D to a single-residence service. They are converting the address with the city to a single residence.
My question is : Does square D make a cap to fit and seal for the 2 non-used meters? Has anyone had this experience before?. I see no reason why I can't just pull 2 meters and use only one 125A branch-plenty of power for this house. Is this legal in code sense, I can't imagine replacing a whole service to get a 1-meter panel.
Thanks in advance for any feedback! See attached photo
