If specs on an appliance plate read ; 15 Amps, 115 Volts.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The distance from the power source to the receptacle (plug) where the appliance is going to be plugged is 230 feet, what is the wire (american wire gage) or conductor size, the thickness of the wire? Thank you.
