I just got a response from my AHJ regarding the installation of a PV system connected to the line side of a service where there is a MLO MDP with breakers feeding subpanels in the building. They told me that it would be OK as long as the PV did not constitute a 7th handle. I watched a Mike Holt video a couple of weeks ago that said that this was not the case. In addition, the note in the 2014 NEC Handbook at the end of 690.14 says, "...no more than six disconnects for each source of power are permitted...", emphasis mine, seems to agree with that. Thoughts?
