Hello my name isXXXXX have 12 18watt landscape fixtures. Can I use the Hampton Bay
120vac 60hz, 2.6a 12v/14vac. To light them I also have 14gauge wire as main run

The transformer is large enough, but you should use 12 gauge wire to feed at least the first half of the lights as it will draw almost 20 amps total and 14 is usually good for only 15 amps to avoid overheating.
