polling some of my neighbors I have seen main breakers with ratings including 100 amps, 150 and 200.

given that my home somehow passed inspection in the mid 90s despite several violations, and knowing what I know of Silverman's construction methods I'd make a small wager that they picked either 100 or 150 amp service lines for every house, and just chose different panel sizes based on the number of circuit needs/desires.

on my list for this spring/summer is to finally get my main service lines upgraded to 200 to match my 200 amp panel, and to install a proper bypass for the generator instead of backfeeding through the dryer.
