    Need to add neutral slots to my 125 amp panel to match ground slots.

    I have an Eaton 125 amp panel with a ground bus bar with 24 slots and 14 neutral slots. I have a 6 breaker Reliance 7500w transfer panel connected to it. The main panel has 4 unused breakers. I need to increase slots on my neutral side. Can I add an additional neutral busbar to the existing one?
