Overhead wiring to Garage (Nova Scotia)
Good afternoon, I want to wire my detached garage from my home panel, but I want to go above ground (4M) as the landscaping is complete (walls, paving etc). I am planning on a 60A sub panel from my 100A house panel with 3 #6 wire with a guy wire and anchors for support. (Distance 30 feet)
Question 1: Can I run one service mast up the garage and one up the house conecting them with overhead wires as stated above?
Question 2: What type wire is required (RW90 etc)?
Question 3: Do I require grounding in the Garage or can I run a grounding wire overhead with the 3 conductor garage service?

This topic has been discussed one too many times, so just search it and you will find many threads, then if you have any additional question ask.

Being as he's not in the states it probably hasn't been covered. I'll dig out my code book tomorrow and give you a list of what you need to do.
