Answer

Per NEC Table 310.15(B)(16), a 2 AWG copper USE-2/RHH/RHW-2 conductor is rated for 115 Amps (at 75C). It is large enough for 100 Amps however if using the full 100 Amp load (which is unlikely), the voltage drop will be a little bit higher (3.24%) than recommended (3%). 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.
