An engineer who works for a company that sold me a meter pedestal looked up the required wire thickness to go from a meter pedestal near the road to the house. About 80 feet distance. The house plans call for max 100AMP. I do not envision using more than 60AMPS. He said 2 AWG is too small. He claims that according to the local codes the max they'll let you go with 2 AWG is 30 feet. I will need 1 AWG. Does that sound right? The guy at Home Depot said that 2 AWG is rated for 95 AMPS up to 100 feet. Do the codes differ so much from ratings?
