New member for old question!


Square D meter panel "see attach SC8L125S" use as SFD service panel, its busbar as "attach JPG".


The panel electricity from utility has direct connection to busbar without a 125A main breaker to limit current from utility to busbar, and the 100A breaker is a feeder breaker to sub-panel.

Q1.   For single structure SFD service meter panel, breaker plug-in on busbar to supply sub-panels or branch circuits    

         are consider as service disconnects or branch circuits?

Q2.   Is NEC 230.71 apply to SFD?
