    Default Main Breaker Panel Service lead inlet

    On the main breaker panels most service leads enter the box at the top or bottom. Is it ok to enter from the back 2 inch opening and bring the lead arounf and back to the top lugs.

    Default Re: Main Breaker Panel Service lead inlet

    Basically, the main breaker is the breaker that the feeder wire connects to. This breaker is a two-pole breaker that is connected to 240 volts to power your home. The main breaker is usually located atop the remainder of the breakers in a panel, but sometimes the breaker panel is installed upside down. Some main breakers are bolted in place and others are snapped in to place like the branch circuit breakers.






    Thank you..

    To answer your question - Yes it OK to bring the service entrance conductors in the back knockouts in the panel.
