You really need to do the tapping on the load side of the service
disconnect unless all of these panels are "grouped" in one location
with 6 or less disconnects. Those conductors will be required to be
treated as service conductors too (bonded raceways etc)
It is a lot safer/easier to tap the load side
My main service has two 100A double pole breakers. Each one feeds a
panel. I need one of those breakers for my new shop, so I need to know
if I can feed my two panels in my house with one breaker and feed my
shop with the spare. Is there a device that i can use to put four wires
into one breaker. The reason I have two panels in my house is because I
used to have electric heat.
I take it that your main electrical service does not have room for more
Adding another breaker would be the right way to do this.

All defensive shooting experts recommend the "double tap."
With a single shot, knockdown occurs approximatel 90% of the time. Two hits
on the same assailant raises this percentage to 98%. For the cost of a
single cartridge - maybe twenty cents - the increased probability of
disabling your adversary is certainly worth it. (Three shots raise the
probability to virtual certainity BUT it has been found that three or more
shots to a mope is very difficult to explain in court.)
Of course, this is assuming you hit the do-bad. Obviously, two shots double
your chances of connecting with the nefarious squint.
Anyway, the unanimous opinion is, yes, double tap is always appropriate.
