    I'm not picking nits. I made a statement that is backed up by fact. You chose to misinterpret it as saying something completely different from what I said. That's called a strawman argument.

    Pretty sure Crouse-Hinds was bought by Murray which is owned by Siemens. Have you asked either of those companies?

    If you don't understand the difference between power and energy I'm not going to spend a lot of words explaining it to you. That's basic stuff, like understanding the difference between speed and...

    I agree with you for once. I'd predict that, as solar proliferates, time of use rates will eventually flip-flop.

    I said POWER, not energy. Anyway 24.1% is a 'player in grid power'.

    I would agree it's pointless to replace old breakers with expensive breakers. A new panel with new breakers probably costs similar installed. The purpose Connecticut breakers, in my opinion, is to...

    I'm not sure that is really an ideal choice because the Xantrex probably comes with an internal transfer switch and in that case you would/should not be using either the manual interlock or automatic...

    The top breaker is a main breaker, but so is every other breaker in there. It's an MLO type panel. The top breaker does not shut the others off.

    Tell that to the millions of Prius owners out there getting better mileage than owners of any other similar class car.

    Regenerative breaking happens when you hit the brake of course. It's not a...

    umm, Germany at moments has gotten nearly 100% of it's power from solar. California on a sunny day gets as much as a quarter of its power from solar. Say what you will about the storage and...

    I think the only code section that hasn't been mentioned that plays into the logic in my post #34 is 100.3(B). Otherwise they have all been mentioned already in this thread.

    You're right, nothing would be wrong with that per se. (I believe you need some particular circumstances to justify the multiple disconnects.) In this case installing a lug kit really would turn...

    That wouldn't really involve the tap rules because technically he'd be extending the service conductors if he did that. He couldn't go inside without having a disconnecting means at the point of...

    FWIW I've seen a QO panel of similar style that was rated 200A (it only had 8 spaces, not 12). I've also seen a couple rated less.

    I wouldn't refer to it as a meter base because it's really meter/main combo service equipment. Instead of thinking of it as 'no main breaker' you should think of all the breakers in there being...

    I'm with Don, I don't buy this line of argument whatsoever.

    First, the code does not require the service disconnecting means to be identified as SUSE. That requirement applies to the...

    230.66 is really irrelevant.



    Right. We aren't talking about the service rating or the service equipment rating.

    That's not what he said. But even if one could, if that means were a circuit breaker then its rating would still have to meet 230.79. I think you've really jumped the shark here. 230.79 applies...

    Seems like an unintended loophole, and one which is irrelevant to the OP because the two are the same device (circuit breaker). I suppose I could try to use this argument with an AHJ but I don't...

    If there's a solar system that backfeeds 30A in the panelboard, then arguably you have an 90A service, since it would be a code violation to change the fuses to anything greater. 8-)

    Yeah, you can't downsize an existing 100A breaker on a single family home. I've gotten away with the type of configuration in question only when the existing main breaker was already less than 100A...
