Ran out of knock out holes on the top of the panel

I have an electric panel where the top side of it has about 10-12 knock out holes and they are all occupied (some EMT conduits some romex) and everything runs up to the attic then head to various locations.

I still have a number of spare slots for additional circuits but I don't have space up top for additional circuits to exit.

Is there an easy solution for this?

Thanks in advance.

Normally the panel is mounted on a piece of wood. There are knockouts on all sides of the panel. Bring the wires down and in the sides or in the bottom.

How about mounting a trough above the panel? If you use a nipple 24'' or shorter you won't have to derate.

Most NM clamps are listed for 2 xx-2 cables in the correct size.
