Wiring a detached garage from another detached garage?
Hey guys, I am needing some second opinions on my project. I have a detached garage(24x30) that is fed from a 100a breaker in the main which is 200a. I have built a second detached garage(30x42) that is 150ft. behind the first. I am wanting to put a 100a breaker in the first garages sub-panel and run 4/0 AL (4-4-4-6)SE to the second garage where i will have another subpanel. Where I have concerns is when running AL, can I run it 24ft. across my first garage before burying it in 2in. pvc. Or do I need to run CU across and then junction to AL before starting my run, and does either need to be in conduit while going overhead? If anyone could help me out on this it would be greatlly appreciated.:whistling2:
