Stranded Copper

Wire gauge for temporary lighting?

I'm going to hang some temporary lights in my crawl space while I'm working down there and would like to know what gauge stranded copper wire I should use. I'm going to have ten (10) twenty-six (26) Watt compact flourescent bulbs distributed over 100 feet of wire. I was going to use 12/2 stranded wire, but think that might be overkill with the small 2.16 Amp load of the bulbs, but wasn't sure if the 100' length would impact that calculation? Thanks, Dave.

Yes, 12 guage wire will be overkill. Even 14 ga would be more than adequate to supply that number of CFLs.
