I have a 300 ft overhead electric service run to my home. It is a 100 amp service now. Can this wire be used to replace it underground either direct burry or in PVC. Is this size also capable of running a 200 amp upgrade?

Answer: 
: Yes – you can use this product for a 100A underground direct-burial service installation. However 300’ is a long distance to run service entrance cable and voltage drop will be a concern. It would be better to upsize to at least a 2/0 AWG conductor. No – this size will be much too small for a 200A installation (especially considering the voltage drop over the long cable run).

Is this wire also RHW rated?

Type USE/USE-2 is allowed for underground and in conduit when exiting the ground to enter the structure. USE/USE-2 is NOT allowed to be used for inside wiring(coming from the outside underground run through the wall inside and to the panel/sub-panel). RHW/RHW-2 is allowed to be run inside, as long as it is protected(i.e. conduit). So a USE/USE-2 *AND* RHW/RHW-2 DUAL RATED Wire will allow for a continuous Panel-to-Panel run, whereas a single rated wire will only allow an outside run, or an inside run.

Please Clarify what ratings this wire carries.
