Customer Questions & Answers

Is this wire adequate to run underground for 100 amp service 130 feet from house?

Asked by: map
You will need to check with the local building inspectors in your areas to determine which items meet code in your area. Codes do vary from municipality to municipality, and can change over a short period of time.

I am running a 100 amp service back to a cabin. I Need to run 900 ft underground. Would this work ? Other recomendations

Asked by: Handyman
No - this will not work. The voltage drop over 900' will be too large and the voltage at the cabin will drop too much when the circuit is heavily loaded (running power hungry appliances like HVAC, stoves, dryers, etc., ...). You risk damage to motors when using voltage that is too low. Recommendation? Convince the power utility to install a transformer much closer to the cabin, otherwise you will have to use MUCH larger conductors. For example, using the voltage drop application on Southwire's website ( gives the following result: 3 conductors per phase utilizing a #600 Aluminum conductor will limit the voltage drop to 2.70% or less when supplying 100.0 amps for 900 feet on a 120 volt system. In other words, that is 3 parallel circuits of 600kcmil conductors to keep the voltage drop below 3% which is the industry standard for efficient use of electrical appliances and devices. 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 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.

500 ft. 2-2-2 AL URD Ramapo Cable 55417407 I need 250' How do I price that amount

This comes in a 500 ft roll I need half of that. How is it priced?
Asked by: DonC
You can check with your local Home Depot stores to see if they carry this product on their wire machine. Depending on location and based on different codes for those locations, each store may carry a number of different service entry items that are available by the foot. If not available in store, you would have to purchase the full roll of wire. This is not an item that we provide by the foot.

Can this wire be used from the electric pole to the 200 amp panel?

Asked by: dave
That is too small for this application. The 2 AWG is only good for 135 amps with 75C terminations. Need 2/0 for the 200 amp service. If you do not have a copy of the NEC (NFPA 70), you can now access it (and other NFPA codes and standards) for free on the web at And remember that it is far better to hire a professional electrician for jobs like this than risk injury or fire by doing it yourself. Your safety and the safety of those around you are more important than any money you might save.
