Can I run 200 amp electric service into a 100 amp panel ?

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. Thanks


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.
