Power Cable Single conductor medium voltage ozone-resistant stranded copper cable pulled in conduit. No conduit included. Labor cost assumes three bundled conductors are pulled at one time on runs up to 100 feet. Labor cost will be higher on longer cable pulls and about 50% lower when cable is laid in an open trench. No splicing included. Listed by American Wire Gauge. Note that wire prices can change very quickly. Check with supplier.
