Answer: Always
Explanation: Yes to ensure proper installation, and the town wants their money lol. Some people skip this step lol, I went to service call other day, guy says I turn off the min breaker and house is still on ? I get there and someone installed a 200 amp main breaker panel on a 100 amp service , they put a 100 amp breaker where the other breakers were, it was illegal and if you have a problem like an electrical fire, you rush to shut the main and end up losing your house because the guy who installed it saved you money but installed the wrong panel to give you more circuits ! Hire a professional not a moonlighter !
