Answer: 
It's about twice the size of what's needed for a 100A service, but given the distance, it would be better than running smaller wite as suggested above.

Answer: 
It's actually safer to use the same strand of wire throughout the entire run. Not only for ease of use, but it's code to do that throughout most areas of the country.
If you do decide to connect it, make sure it's in an accessible junction box. It's best to really consult a local electrician in your area who can go over further information on-site with you.

Answer: 
My 2014 NEC book says yes. Check out 310.15 (b)(7) (1) thru (4).... 83% of a 200A service is 166A. 4/0 aluminum is good for 180A@75°C...........

Answer: 
No. Sub panel conductors are sized based on the breaker protecting them. 4/0 aluminum is rated 180A @75°C. You just told another person they couldn't use this wire for a 200A service. Think you have the code mixed up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suitable as expected. Product is fine, as expected. Delivery to the work site was easy to arrange. May 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as tough as I expected I had to purchase 65 feet of this cable. I installed it in 2" PVC conduit like the power company said to do and when installing it into the conduit the PVC shaves large chunks of the sheathing off the cable because the sheathing is really soft. I found it hard to imagine it could be direct buried with sheathing so soft. The wire does what it should but at almost $2 a foot at my store I thought direct bury cable would be tougher. We have very rocky soil so the sheathing was very important. June 5, 2015
