100 AMP service to barn
Electrician suggested using #1 Copper, 3 wires for 100 AMP going 245' placing in 2" schedule 80. Grounding at Barn. #1 Copper to allow correct voltage drop.
Let's see if I understand correctly:
100 AMP Breaker at Panel in house
100 AMP Shut Off Box in house (separate from panel) Note: barn can be shut off at Shut off w/o interupting main 200 AMP panel
I have two 200 AMP panels in home. One panel is nearly empty.
100 AMP Breaker Panel in Barn with Main Switch to kill power while in barn.
Uses will only be a few lights, stock tank heater and welder. Heat by wood only.
Does this sound like it will work? I am trenching, placing water first, then conduit on Friday Oct.17, 2008
A 4-wire feeder is IMO a better installation anyway.
A ground rod at a detached structure with a feeder is mandatory in either case.
