The OP said it was a Sub feed from a 400 amp main panel. Even if it is a split bus that doesn't mean it's not feed from a breaker in the main service and could just be shut off without needing to get the utility company involved. We need more info from the OP to actually know. It looks like something that was bootlegged in anyways.

The utility co. Wouldn't need to be involved. The sevice comes into a large enclosure that has the meter and 2 pull-outs not 100% sure but I believe one is for the 200A main panel and the other for this one. I'm pretty sure there's a 3rd panel but did not see it.

The money we spend to keep them active. Have mechanical electrical plumbing and alarms, it’s expensive every year!

I've seen more than one house where the panel was originally installed under the kitchen sink but one in particular, on a slab, panel under the sink, when the homeowner remodeled he simply moved the panel to the outside of the house and built a shed over it. Needless to say the shed had no floor and it was a damp location. But additionally, the roof leaked and water ran through the panel and rotted it out. The panel was not 3R, not weatherproof, not rated for an outdoor location. And the shed - essentially more of an outdoor "closet" - violated both illumination and the minimum clearance requirements. So, my opinion, definitely not legal (even if in a carport). I did a service change and relocated the panel; the homeowner removed the shed when he resided. In fact he changed that entire outside wall because of termite damage. .
