Hello,
My shop is 350′ from my house and I have a 13 amp/110 volts air compressor and few lights. The compressor would be used periodically. Can you please tell me what size wire I would need?

Thank you

    Good morning Dominick,
    Thank you for your quick and informative response. I have attached a snapshot of my outside box, could I put another 20 amp in the indicated slot? And yes, I know I need to bite the bullet and get #6, but wow. I guess that’s what I get for having my shop built so far from the house. Thank you again. Any further guidance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Part of the time would just be a joke. As per code and any calculator you should be using a #6 wire because of the length. And this is based on 20 amp. Or #8 if you really want to use a 15 amp.

    I would just install a sub-panel
