Can I have an exterior 200A meter and disconnect with the 200A main panel in the interior some 20-30 ft. away? It has to meet California residential code.
I'm trying to avoid the cost of an exterior main panel in addition to a 200A interior sub-panel.
If so, what products should I look for for the exterior? I was thinking "meter socket with disconnect" but I can only find exterior panels.
I currently have a 100A exterior panel at the meter which I need to upgrade to 200A but my contractor recommends having a panel in the interior hallway for convenience.
I can't add the panel close to the meter in the interior because of house configuration. It will have to be 20-30ft away.
