2 service panels connected to meter
Even if those 100 amp breaker disconnects are fed from the bus and not the breaker I like the power turned off feeding them or the meter pulled because just pulling them out sometimes the plastic holding the buss together is brittle and falls apart sending wires bouncing around inside the panel.
Maybe you could see about a 100amp disconnect being allowed that could be used in the event this happens again.
Please ask me about my special discount for people that shut up and stay out of my way! With Electricity there is the right way to do it and the dead way. Just because it works does not make it safe.
