I currently have a 100 amp service that is full even with dual breakers. At present the power comes in overhead from the street and then runs along the house to the back, then drops down to the meter then to a generator switch, then the 100 amp box. My question is this. I want to add a new meter socket at the front of the house then a 200 amp panel feeding the 100 amp out of this. I want to pre install as much as possible What do you think about this idea? This way I do not have to purchase a new generator set as well as messing with all existing wire. I will need more breakers for a planned additon as well as central air.

Please check with your local electric utility company and discuss your plans with the electrical inspector in your town or city.

Good Luck!!
