    Can and would you use QO SD Homeline circuit breaker in a G.E. panel.

    The panel has a 100 amp. main disconnect.

    The breakers in the G.E. panel are only going to be temporary, during the contruction
    stage.

    After which, a new panel will be installed in a new location, with the
    existing G.E. panels being remove.

    Short answer is NO.

    That being said there are cross compatible breakers for some panels. Certain GE panels can take certain Cutler Hammer breakers.

    As far as SquareD is concerned even their QO and HOMELINE breakers aren't interchangable! What makes you think they would work in a GE panel?
