Q:When I clicked on the specification, the Southwire list for the 1 awg AL said it would be 18 strands. When I received the spool, it only had 8 number of strands. Does Southwire make a 18 stranded 1 awg Aluminum Alloy of 8000 or 1350 series cable?

      A:  When you feed a secondary panel, you have to run 4 wires to it per NEC code. And the ground at the secondary panel has to be isolated from the neutral, so for many panels, you may have to buy a ground bar kit.

        A:  Please consult your local electrician. 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.

            Conductor has excellent strength and conductivity. I found that USE-2 is difficult to flex, however. Perhaps it would be useful to quantify the bending/flexing resistance somehow in the advertisement.
