Quote from: Redoverfarm on January 19, 2019, 08:09:57 PMYou should be able to run a 100 amp disconnect off of your 200 amp disconnect then to a 100 amp panel in your shop ( which can then run your shop and well) . Then continue from your 200 amp disconnect to your house 200 amp panel. The 100 amp disconnect will only allow 100 amps for your shop. I think it is confusing referring to disconnects and panels. The disconnect cuts the compete voltage to a main breaker panel. Then a main breaker panel has an additional breaker of the same voltage as the disconnect. I reread a previous post in which you stated the electric company was going to install a 200 amp main panel. They are probably going to put a 200 amp disconnect below the meter. You would come out of that to feed your 200 amp main panel in the house. That way you would not disrupt every circuit to work on something is a particular circuit. The disconnects are a safety feature so that in an emergency your complete power can be shut down by the fire department without having to enter and find your main panel box.
