Older home with 2 different size main disconnects. One was 100A the other 75A. Don’t both disconnects have to be of ‘equal’ current carrying capacity?


Thanks, John

John,


Not following you.

You have two disconnects?

In series (meter feeds one which feeds the other)?

Or in parallel (meter feeds both)?

Still does not have to be the "same size", but the service "size" changes with their connection and wiring.
