I was able to find a 225-amp breaker box that was the same brand as my old main box. It was just a few inches taller.
I kept my 200 amp breaker and all the other breakers.
This will allow you to feed back more amps to your main box.
Something to think about.
(Busbar Rating (A) x 1.2) - Main Breaker Rating (A) = Max PV (A)

(225 * 1.2) - 200 = 70 Amps
