Customer Question

Sorry, I lost my Internet, I guess I'm back. I have a 220' run into a 100 amp breaker panel. I plan to use #2 copper for both hots and a #4 copper for the neutral. All will be run through PVC conduit and underground. Am I heading the right way? Thanks.

Generally, yes. The #2 at that distance is good for 90 Amps. If your load does not exceed this, you are good. Should be on a 90 Amp Breaker.
