Indoor Safety Switch Between Meter and Panel
Hi All, I own a two family house in Easton PA. The house is set up with three separate 100A services. All three panels are currently located in the basement. I do not intend on giving the tenants access to the basement. But at the same time, I don't need to be making trips to the house at all hours because they tripped a breaker. I would like to move each panel servicing the apartments into the apartments and install a safety switch (like this one
) in the basement for each. I understand that there are options like a meter main, but I haven't seen any that seem all that secure-able. I would like a bit more control over the switch considering the fact that I might be working on the system and don't need some jerkoff throwing the switch and lighting me up. Would there be any issues with installing a non-fusible safety switch between the pan and panel? Any considerations I should keep in mind? Thank you!
