Long distance run - Help!!
Two years ago we built a small cabin on the back of our pond that sits on our 1 acre pond. Distance from the house is approximately 1500 feet. The local power company wants an outrageous amount to run seperate service to the cabin. Presently, I have a 100 amp service in the cabin that is run by a 5600 watt generator that is in a seperate out building near the cabin.
I would love to run some electric back to this cabin that would run the following -
mini fridge 1.2 amps,
sm tv 1.7 amps,
lighting 2.8 amps.
Here is the balance of the electrical items that we use.
2.5 gal. hot water heater 12.5 amps
microwave - 8 amps
toaster oven - 8 amps
coffee pot - 7.5 amps
Our water system is feed by a 12 volt pump. I do own a Kubota with back hoe so I can dig the trench for direct burial cable. What size wiring would I need to accomplish this. I am open to any and all ideas.
