I've been doing my research, reading tons of messages here and on other sites, and I think I know what I need to run power to my shed, but wanted to put it all together and have the collective mind check my work.
Physical: Detached Garage 75' from the panel box on the side of the house where I'm tying in the power. 90' wire distance.
SubPanel: - 60A Main Breaker Panel - I bought a CH22B100V panel for in the shed, but will swap the 100A main with a 60A Main Breaker. - From what I see the 60A Main can handle wire up to #2 as this panel is fed through the main not through lugs in the panel. - Need 2 Ground rods on the shed end tied to the panel ground. - Ground and Neutral bus not bonded at the shed
Wire: - Planning to run 2-2-2-4 Al wire as it's the largest I can tie into the 60A in the shed. MHF (Mobile Home Feeder seems to be suggested in multiple places) - That should get me the ability to upgrade to 90A later if needed as the breakers and panels are rated 75deg for Al. - Plan on running 1-1/2 or 2" conduit 24" underground to the shed.
Questions: - Is the wire choice right? I think I just need to make sure I am using THWN cable. Are there other types that would work. It will be in conduit all the way from the main panel to the subpanel. The MHF I see is RHH/RHW/USE rated, which I believe would work. No issues with running that cable in conduit the whole way?
4 wires (2hot) (1 Neutral) (#4 Ground). Do the colors matter at this size, or can you wrap them with tape if needed?
Anything else I am forgetting?
