I went and talked to an engineer at the power coop.
So what they do is put a co-gen meter on your house to bill and back feed and put in a second meter that only tracks the panels power production.

So all the power comes and goes through your original service drop, all the power comes and goes through your original meter box, all the power the panels produce goes through the solar panels meter and back feeds to the breaker box.

I asked if I could do house panels then later on add satellite panes out in my field and connect those to their own meter, with both systems producing less than the 10kw limit.
They said it shouldn't be a problem.
