You really need 400 amps? I kind of doubt that you do. :whistling2:
I actually had to do a load calc on this one to be sure :laughing:, and yes, 200 amps was way more than they needed. But it was what the customer asked for, so thats what I put in.You really need 400 amps? I kind of doubt that you do. :whistling2:
Im leaning this way, but I'd like to use one of those combo meter bases if I can. It would be quicker to install and I'd just like to try on out.Well then, the only option I can think of is a gutter and two separate 200 amp meter sockets.
I will need disconnects because both panels are further than 6 ft inside each apt.You need disconnects built in to the double meter base since the panels won't be grouped together inside?
I could possibly do 320 amp. That's what all the 400 amp services around here are anyway.How about aluminum 350MCM's inside of the 2 1/2" pipe to make a 300A service? That's should cover the whole house.
