This main disconnect will shut down power to the entire EP and any subsequent EP's further down stream.
Generally speaking, the first panel in line with the service entrance is the service panel and each panel afterward is an equipment panel (EP) or sub panel (Bob B. doesn't like us to use that term ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif) )
