Can you run 60 amps to a 100 amp panel?
Your wire gauge will allow you to maximum run somewhere in the 75-80 amp range. I wouldn’t go all the way to 100 amps, but 60 amp service should work. You’ll need 1 AWG wire to run 100 amps safely that distance.
Can I run a 100 amp sub panel off a 60 amp breaker?

What size wire do I need for a 60 amp subpanel?
What wire do I need for a 60 amp subpanel?
How many amps will trip a 60 amp breaker?
If it’s located on the higher side of the panel, expect a reduction of at least 5 amps in its total capacity. Don’t forget how long the electrical load lasts. The longer the load lasts, the sooner the breaker trips. Take note that it only takes 3 minutes of continuous 60-amp load to trip a 60-amp breaker.

What size breaker do I need for a 60 amp subpanel?
You have to use a #4 conductor to feed a 60 amp circuit.
What size wire should I use for a 60Amp subpanel?
What size wire do I need for a 60 amp subpanel? That would be 4-gauge wire. In practice, however, it’s common to wire 60-amp breakers with 6-gauge, 3-conductor wire because an appliance that needs a 60-amp breaker seldom draws the full 60 amps. If you’re installing a 60-amp subpanel, however, it’s best to connect it to the main panel with 4-gauge wire.

What size wire do you need for a sub panel?
The UPS still needs to have a case, but it doesn’t need room for batteries as he’s going to use a series of high-end sealed lead-acid batteries. So he cut down the enclosure to about half of the original size. That’s it mounted just above the new batteries.
How many breakers in a 60 amp service panel?
How many breakers can I put in a 60 amp subpanel? If you have a 60 amp service you could probably put 2 20 amp breakers for outlets and 2 15 amp breakers for lights. If all 4 circuits are near max, your 60 amp main circuit breaker will trip. If you use 20 amp breakers, you need to use 12 ga.
