Daisy Chained Sub Panels

Question

Hi, my house has a 200 amp disconnect outside by the meter. It then feeds into a panel in my garage that I guess is technically a sub panel.My basement is unfinished and I want to add a 100 amp sub panel down there. Both panels are GE and the panel in the garage has the tie bar removed. In order to add the second sub panel in the basement I need lugs for the ground and neutral. GE sells a ground/neutral kit with screw (TLK20CP). Can these be attached to the ground/neutral bars in the first sub panel where the transfer bar was screwed into? The second panel is about 25 ft away fed with 2-2-2-4 aluminum rated for 90 C (according to amp chart I have this is OK). The feed is coming from a 100 amp breaker in the first sub panel. I just want to verify if the neutral and ground termination in the first sub panel is ok to screw the lugs where the tie bar was.

  1. Yes that’s what you would do. However not being there to see it it’s a little hard to say for 1000%. But the electrical inspector will let you know if something is not. But when he comes make sure you point out the main disconnect.
