Hi pros, I want to run two 14-2 direct burial cables from my panel to my shed, about 50' away. one for the 1500w heater. The other one just for a few lights and TV. My breaker is 15A. the one I am looking at is the Southwire 14/2WG UF Wire 600 volts. will this be good to power the heater or should I get something else? many thanks!

The electrical code does not allow you to run individual circuits to an out building.

In addition, the wire you are posting is not CSA approved and is from the USA.

Please contact an Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC) for assistance.
