Gen-ready load center for CH breakers

Is there such a panel to accept these breakers? I found a nice Reliance gen load center w/ watt meters but seems they don't accept my breakers.

Trying to avoid replacing all the breakers but if that's the case then I will have to bite the bullet.

Will be an indoor 200A service. This is the panel I was looking at.

Gen-ready load center for CH breakers

The ch breakers will not work.
The pdf, page 8 list the breakers needed.

You can use Cuttler Hammer, br breakers, Square d, homline breakers, murry, mp breakers, and siemans, qp,qt,qph among others.

If that panel doesn't list your breakers on the specifications sheet then your panel cannot use them in it.
There is also chance that your existing panel can have an interlock kit and backfed breaker installed just like the one your looking at only you will not have the watt meters. For considerably less money. There are aftermarket kits and the panel manufacturer may offer an accessory interlock kit.
