#6 wire stranded

AWG-8 wire can safely carry 30 amps to a load 100 feet away.

To calculate the wire size, a system voltage is needed.

A #2 copper wire with an insulation factor of 75 and 90 degrees C is rated at 115 and 120 amps respectively.

Volts * Amps = Watts 12 V * ?Amps = 100 Watts OR ? Amps =100W/12V OR 8.33 Amps = 100W/12V Use a 10Amp fuse inline and you can get by with 16Ga wire.

The V stands for volts and A is amps. If for example you have a 12kVA device and are running off a voltage of 120 volts then Amps = 12000/120 = 100. You then use the calculated amps in a wire size table to get the correct size.

you would use #2 aluminum urd wire for a 100 amp service
