To post questions, help other DIYers and reduce advertising (like the one on your left), join our DIY community. I had an electrician out today to look at upgrading my service panel from the existing 100 amp to a 200 amp . I would like to put in AC, a sub panel to the pole barn and install an external connection for my 6500 w generator. I asked him if he could put in a metered panel outside to give me the expansion I need and still feed the 100 amp service panel in the house.
If it is too difficult or time consuming to replace my service panel inside my home to a 200 amp service panel could someone install a metered panel outside my home, feed the existing panel then run new lines for the AC and pole barn and install an interlock kit for my portable generator??
You can replace the service with 200 amp placing the new main panel outside or in a basement and install a 100 amp breaker to feed the existing panel as a subpanel.

I am wiring up a new external service disconnect (200 Amp pass through with 8 breaker slots) and have a few questions. For the ground wire, do you use the bus inside of the disconnect or the external lug that can be attached to the case? There is going to be a GFCI plug wired up just under the panel with the wiring run inside of conduit.
I will assume you will be burying this 10-2, and it is rated for burial or use inside buried conduit, such as type UF.


So if I upgrade to a 60 amp breaker and sub panel at the barn, wouldn't I need like #4cu for this? It would appear that you are trying to stay within your budget with the information you have posted.
If you wanted you could have the option of running those lights on a 3 way set-up allowing you to turn them off and on at the house or barn. Another option would be to run a 240 volt multiwire 10 awg copper using your two 30 amp breakers and sharing a neutral.
I'd suggest you hire an electrician, or talk to your local or county inspector so they can help you size conductors, float neutrals in the panel, and otherwise understand what you're doing.
At 130 feet you could have a maximum 13 amp load, to stay within an acceptable voltage drop, on that wire. You would need to purchase a 20 amp double pole breaker, 30 amps is not allowed for lights and general purpose receptacles.
Probably will want to hit another switch so you can control your lights after the disconnect of course.
If you are going thru all the trouble of doing it, you might as well do it right and be prepared for future needs. I may not have explained my self clearly to him he seemed very knowledgeable about his craft.


However, maybe someone here can help me and I will better explain myself to the next electrician. Don't use the conduit as your ground. ETA- The panel should come with a green screw that screws through the bus bar into the panel or an offset piece of AL that terminates to the bus bar and screws to the panel. You could install a single circuit breaker in the barn to protect a smaller wire running to the switch and lights. Main panel's= grounded to ground rod's and bonded to the neutral(via green screw or aluminum bus).
In the case of a sub panel they want the ground and neutral to be from same origin as conductors ,not bonded at 2 different sources creating a differnce in potential. Crown owns the stumpage on the 1996 cruised volumes at the rates in effect at time of cutting.
