The electrician from my solar installation company got approval from my city to run 8 gauge wire 50 feet from my panel to the garage NEMA 14-50 outlet. I recall that all the electrical threads here recommend 6 gauge wire. Will 8 be enough or should I insist on 6? It is all run through conduit so pulling the 6 gauge wire later should not be a problem. The electrician is finishing up today and I am getting my car today as well!
