Is using the main panel as a junction box a code violation?

      Good to know I'm doing my solar-battery backup generator installs just like everyone else.

        You can can not have wires connected to a breaker in one panel leave, and then run through conduit to another panel, and then exit the second panel to the field.
        I'm not arguing that your are not right to the letter of the law, I have done this before (in ontario) on a few occasions and got my ESA sticker with no questions asked. I think if your were doing a new installation with a generator panel and had joints in a panel the inspector would be shaking his head and likely force the noted codes. However in an existing installation (ie retrofitting a generator panel) there isn't a whole lot that you can do without a joint somewhere. That being said, I haven't done rezzy work for awhile so the ESA may have firmed up their stance on this since.
