I recently upgraded my solar to an EG4 18K hybrid inverter and am adding a backup battery pack which requires a new 225 panel and sub panel. I am also awaiting the CT Foundation with the PowerShare feature. Tesla already approved me for the PowerShare with my existing system, but I am worried the upcoming changes will make it harder...but am hoping going with SPAN for the new panel will make it easier. Should I go basic on the 225 panel and sub panel or go for the SPAN?

Please share some collective knowledge and experience if you got it. Thanks.

Go for the SPAN.
You could even wife the span as a 200amp sub panel and leave the existing panel in place

What would the benefit of having the two panels be? More capacity, more function?

No, just saves time from needing to go through utility and removing the old panel.
Span is not a meter panel combo so you would need a separate meter
