Solar Ready Load Center Pedestal

mgensler | Posted in Expert Exchange Q&A on

We are looking to add a 19Kw ground mount PV system in the near future. Our electric service has a Midwest Pedestal with meter that we planned to connect to. I checked with Midwest technical support and they said the bus would only support 200 amps and that their was no way to do a line tap without violating UL. They also said they have no other add-on or way to modify the pedestal as it pre-dates solar becoming mainstream. If I have no other options, I am fine to replace it. Does anyone know of a 200 amp solar ready meter pedestal with a few breaker slots? I need to feed a subpanel at the pool from this as well as the main house. Here is what we currently have.
