## What size wire do I need for a 60 amp subpanel?

That would be 4-gauge wire. In practice, however, it’s common to wire 60-amp breakers with 6-gauge, 3-conductor wire because an appliance that needs a 60-amp breaker seldom draws the full 60 amps. If you’re installing a 60-amp subpanel, however, it’s best to connect it to the main panel with 4-gauge wire.

## What size wire is good for 60 amps?

For 60 amps #6 wire is the right size. Use RHW or THHN type insulation. Wire of # 8 gauge is only good for 50 amps. Make sure to get stranded cable.

## What size wire is good for 50 amps?

For a maximum of 50 amps, you’ll need a wire gauge of 6. Fifty amp breakers are most often used to power many different appliances.

## What size wire is good for 100 amps?

When it comes to the lines connecting master and secondary panels, where the line will carry as much as a full 100 amps, use a 2-gauge non-metallic sheathed electrical cable. The cable must contain one or two hot wires depending on your needs, one neutral wire, and one ground wire. Each wire should be 2-gauge in size.

## What size wire do I use for a 100 amp subpanel?

This is typically a three-wire cable with three insulated conductors plus a bare copper ground wire. The cable must have a wire gauge sufficient to the amperage of the subpanel—a 100-amp subpanel requires #4 copper wires, for example.

## Can I use aluminum wire to feed a subpanel?

However, in larger-capacity circuits, such as a main service entrance for a house, or in a situation such as yours—a feeder from the main electrical panel to a subpanel—aluminum cable may still be permitted.

## Can you run 220 on 100 amps?

Yes, you can. As long as it 240v with a neutral and ground. The only downside is other loads. If the new load with the other loads goes over 100a, you will trip the breaker.
