Subject: Wire gauge at 165 feet



Name: jim



Question: What gauge wire do I need to run for a 15 amp circuit at 165 feet?

Also what gauge wire do I need to run for a 20 amp circuit at 165 feet?

Answer: Hi Jim,
If you are running over a 100 foot run you will need to move you wire gauge up one level. So If you are running:

15 amp 165 feet should use 12 awg.
20 amps 165 feet should use 10 awg.
