mm,

Welcome!
I think that may be a question that may have different answers depending on location. It may be something to ask your local utility or AHJ.

BTW, in your profile you have to have http:// in front of the website address or it will not work.

Our utility PECO allows double lugging on the lineside to tap for off-peak rate equipment. I also know that they evidently allow load side double lugging on the relatively new 400 amp residential services. A large meter socket that can accomodate,if needed, but doesnt require CTs is installed and feeds 2 separate panels in the homes. Each fed by 200 amp SE cable. I haven't done one yet, but I have seen quite a few. Has anyone installed one?
