My question concerns the size wire I would need to get electric from our pole to our cabin. Please give your answer as detailed as possible as I’m a Senior woman whose military husband passed and I’m without service.

The power in amps at the meter is 200 amps, split into 2 100 amp breakers. The cabin is 200 feet from the pole. I want to bury the wire in conduit. I need to know the size of the wire and type (aluminum or copper) and how many wires or if I need to buy single wire (y amount of times x 200 feet).

The second 100 amp breaker will go to the pump house only ten feet away. There is a breaker box in there I assume I can hook this up to with the same wire. If not, please let me know.

I so appreciate anyone’s help. I can hook it all up I just don’t know anything about wire amperage so I would appreciate the assistance. Have a blessed day.
