Re: Sub-panel installation
With a 20 amp outlet circuit and a 15 amp lighting circuit, I doubt you will ever exceed 30 amps. 5 100 watt lights would draw less than 5 amps. You would need to use 10 ga for a 30 amp drop. My suggestion though would to put in a little larger 240 volt sub panel and service in case you want a workshop in the garage later or want to add heaters.
