Mark P Posted December 16, 2009 Report Share Posted December 16, 2009 The main disconnect and panel are outside below the meter. There is a 200 amp main breaker w/ appropriate sized wire running from the meter. Inside the house there is a subpanel that services the majority of the house. The wire(s) running from the outside main panel to the inside sub-panel are 2 #4 secured under the same lug, not a breaker. See picture. Is there anything technically wrong with this? I know that #4 is rated for 100 amp and that 2 #4 does NOT = 200 amp. So I understand there is not 200 amp going to the subpanel inside the house; so no reason to revisit the discussion for my benefit. This is the 1st time I have seen this arrangement, so IÃ¢â¬â¢m looking for another opinion, which is what TIJ is so great at. Yes I know there are other issure: double tapping, neturals not isolated, etc. Click to Enlarge 43.21 KB Click to Enlarge 92.68 KB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
