Probably you will want to check out your equipment requirements first. Circuits using 20amps will need a minimum of 12 gauge wire and those using 15amps will need a minimum of 14 gauge wire.

Lighting will probably be OK at 14 gauge. The 10/3 will work for 240 volt applications up to about 5hp motors.

All this is for single phase.
