I just wanted to reiterate that, at least from what I’ve seen, most resi panels are not mounted sideways here. But we can. I personally try to avoid it- I hate it. It can be helpful in some situations and like @eddycurrent said in service upgrades with short existing wires. I worked for a guy for awhile who liked to install his panels sideways, but I didn’t inherit that method. Interesting thread!
