Installing a 50amp subpanel 600′ away from main


Hello Dominick,
Great video. I am installing a 50amp subpanel located outdoors and about 600′ away from the main. The subpanel will power two flood lights and two heaters for the horses’ troughs. The wire will be underground. What size wire should be used between the two panels and what are my wire options for direct bury vs conduit? Thank you for you help. Bob

  1. Youll want to use a director burial rates wire if you are going that route. I would just use cuntuit, it’s cheap and easy.

    As far as what size wire, well that’s going depend on more info. Use a page of mine here. I think you’ll see the link near the bottom of this page.
