2-2-2-4 Wire question
I am putting electric in my garage. It is a 100 amp box. Had 3 strand 2-2-2 aluminum (with the 4 left out) through the box, meterbase, and up through the weatherhead. Inspector said I needed 2/0 aluminum instead. Everyone I talked to said this was crazy and was too much ampage. Anyway, I called another inspector and he said 3/2 was what to use. Is this the same as what I had in it to begin with (2-2-2-4, just leaving the 4 out)?
