If you are in Canada it is not a issue most electrical supply and some big box store will have it.

If you are in USA it kinda limited depending on the code cycle and state codes will allow more than 42 circuits on one load centre.

AFAIK few states allready allowed more than 42 circuits only if you are on 2008 NEC code cycle not before that.

Normally something like that big it have to be ordered from electrical supply centre or go thru Canada electrical supply.

I am not sure what the price at the moment but it will varies a bit.

Sometime it cheaper to get 2X 200 42 space panels plus just get one Power take off lugs to feed the second panel { check the code on this one }

Merci.
Marc

Here's one with 60 spaces:

Can't seem to find one with more, but it would probably be hard to find. What I'd look into doing is maybe just getting two panels. Have one feed off the other with the highest breaker you can get, or as high as your main. That way it's sorta like being all one panel, no need to worry about overloading the sub. The main breaker will do it's job if it needs to.

Keep in mind, even if you can find and 80 space panel it will be a 40/80, not a true 80 full spaces.

I know Canada has allowed these for a while but I have never seen one, especially down here. I hope we can get them soon.

Yeah I was quite surprised at the height too. I would love to see that thing. Needs a flux capacitor coming off the side with steel conduit, too.
