Sub-panel: What sides do the hots go on?


Rewiring a sub-panel due to previous owner having a bonded ground and I was just wondering which side of the panel the respective red/black 120v hot wires would go on? Or does it not matter?

Right now I have it with the black on the left and the red on the right

It does not matter which goes where between the two hot lugs.

I don't think it matters on single phase what one goes where.

It don't mater, I would put them same as in the main, just because. But there is no real reason or need too. That come from panel wireing.
