Thanks.
First off, you can do your own wiring as long as it's your residence and permits are pulled...
Second, what is the HP of the Quincy air compressor, and what electrical is existing at the pole barn now? (Im talking wire size, sub-panel, etc...)
Take some pics if you are unsure of what to post, the nameplate on the compressor, and pic of existing electrical at pole barn.
