I understand needing a licensed electrician, however out of 2 different opinions from 2 different electricians one says direct burial quadplex the other says conduit. Who do I believe ? I realize being a marina changes things but these feeders aren't on docks or near water.


From your visitor message above I would always go with conduit in the ground versus direct burial even if it wasn't a marina. I don't believe conduit is necessary though.

Default direct burial or not

I need to run a 240 single phase 100amp feeders 270 ft away from meter to panel. By my novice skills I believe 500mcm would be sufficient and would allow for upgrade later. My question is can/should I use a mobile home direct burial feeder and bury 2ft or more or do I need to use conduit and different cable. This is at a marina and we are trying to eliminate some of the meter bases as we have 11 on property as well as these runs will be going through gravel parking lots. Thanks,Tom




REALLY?

What part of that sounds like he isn't doing the work himself??
