can i run this to feed a 125 amp sub panel in conduit? to a detached garage that is 150 feet away from main panel?

Asked by: Chad
Yes. This product is also rated RHH and RHW-2 (wire types that are allowed to be installed in conduit per the NEC). For a 150' run at 120V, the voltage drop will be 5.1% for a full 125 Amps load which is quite high. You may want to upsize the conductors in order to reduce the voltage drop. A voltage drop calculator is located at http://www.southwire.com/support/voltage-drop-calculator.htm. The over-current device on the main panel that feeds this circuit must protect the wire and be rated for the same current capacity (Amps) of the wire or less. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.
