You are allowed to splice service conductors.
You are allowed to make splices in panels. ![icon_smile.gif](upload://b6iczyK1ETUUqRUc4PAkX83GF2O.gif)
The only requirement would be to use a spicing method for the size and type of conductor.
One way would be to do a running tap on the 200 amp conductors.
That means do not cut them, just strip some insulation off them and use a split bolt connector (Burndy) to add on the 100 amp conductors.
Then you would need to insulate that with heavy rubber tape and then regular tape.
Another way would be insulation piercing bolt on connector (couple taps)
I am not saying it is a great idea or that it would look good, just allowed.
You are right to call out the double tap on this breaker it is bad enough done on branch circuit conductors but to do this with service conductors is done right scary.
By the way is there
a service disconnect outside at the meter or not?
