New member. First post. Thanks in advance for your advice.
I plan to remodel my kitchen this summer and need to add a subpanel to my existing 100 amp main lug panel to add the appliances I'd like to get. The subpanel would be about 40' from the main panel. I would need to run a cooktop (likely induction) and a combination wall oven/microwave from the subpanel, at a minimum. I may also add my refrigerator (currently running on one of my kitchen's small appliance circuits) and a 20 amp circuit for a new basement bathroom eventually (the last two are not must haves). I was thinking of using a 60 amp subpanel, ideally with at least 8 spaces.
What kind of wire do I need to feed the subpanel? Can I use 8/3 with a ground? Or do I need to use 6/3 with a ground?
Does a 60 amp subpanel sound sufficient for this load?
