I am in the process of planning the wiring of a detached garage. I
plan on running 240v to the garage to a subpanel in 2" gray
pvc...schedule 40. My question is, what is the best way of bringing it
into the basement for connection to the main panel? The garage is 30ft
away from the nearest side of the house, and the service panel is on
the opposite side of the basement. I am running this 18" underground
and no sidewalks, driveway etc. Here are the options I am thinking of:
1. Run it straight to the basement, punch a 2" hole in the concrete
basement wall and run it across the basement to the service panel
(still in schedule 40).
2. Run it straight to the basement, then up the side of the basement
wall and bring it in through the sill plate, then across the basement
to the service panel (still in schedule 40).
3. Run it outside all the way 18" underground to the other side of the
basement and bring it in through where the service comes in to the
house. Only thing in my way is maybe a LP gas line that I have to go
over or under (not sure how deep it is buried).
I can't seem to find anything solid on how to bring it into the house.
