are there any code restrictions reguarding bare#6 direct buried. specifically for a sub panel at a detached garage for ground?
also the home owner ran 1/0 aluminum for his feeder, whats the best way now to land in 100 amp breaker split bolt in panel with #2 or j box? in your humble opinions. (obviously cutting strands is a no...no)
thanks,
H20

Doesn't that 100a breaker take up to a 2/0 CU/AL?
