Other than the 2/0 or 4/0 line fitting the terminals on the 100 amp breaker box, will this work temporarily ? I have a new 200 amp meter on the outside. ThanksUpdate:
Yes, this is a short term thing. Friend will be getting his 200 amp breaker panel in a month or so. We updated his exterior with new 200 amp panel w disconnect. With it getting cold, we need heat. So while I know this setup isn't correct, it is temporary to keep us going.

no & yes
the 100 amp box is only Rated for 100 amps as long as you do not exceed that,
200 Amp Panel
Sure you can. If your home only requires a 100 amp panel, then it makes no difference what your service amperage rating is as long as it will deliver 100 amps.
I'm gonna go with Bill on this one;.... the drop can be 200A but the panel still only has 100A capacity. That just means at some point down the road you will be replacing the 100A panel because the bus bar isn't big enough for the breakers you will (possibly) need.
the service panel is rated for the load that will be drawn off of it.not the load inputted,the amps you get is standard from the supplier. so yes you can.
Sure it will work,your panel will still only handle 100 amps.Temporarily i don't see a problem.
I won't work, only use the right equipment onto the right spot.
no it can not.
what happens if you put a truck batterie in your car..... it would melt everything instant.
i think you already know
