You can get that at Home Depot and Lowes, or any electrical store.

I've search lowes and home depot websites with no luck and also searched the web.

If your looking for single conductors that you can put in conduit than all you need is #2 THHN but its the amperage you need to know.

What is this wire for? If you cannot find it on the web you are not using the correct key words for what you are looking for.
Call your local electrical supply they might help. Or go to HD or Lowes and ask them. When you are ready to buy (know what you need), get prices from both.

When I read your post, what I get out of it is this: This man wants one piece of wire, that is #2 AWG, of unknown sheathing, has the capability to carry 240 volts of unknown amperage, and needs to be 1,100 feet long. Being as you did not state which color there is one more piece of this puzzle. Please share with us more details and you will receive a better answer. Thanks, David

Question

new question


I need to run an electrical wire about 600 ft. from my home to my work shop. I have a 150 amp panel in my home and need 60 amps at the work shop. What size wire do I need, how deep does it need to be buried, I can't run it in conduit because the ground is not level, can I run the wire in pvc and if so what size sould I use? Thanks
