power to shed

I am wanting to run 100amp service into my shed. It is about 250' from Main 200 amp service to the shed. the house is also on the 200amp service but only has 100 amp service to it. Would it be ok to just hook into the 200 amp panel? also what size wire should I use. I was planning on putting in ground and in PVC.

Why do you need 100 amps to the shed?

I thought you already had power to this shed. Are you increasing it? Like Ray asked, why do you need 100 amps to a shed? If that is all you have to your house presently, it would be better to provide separate metering and a drop to the shed from the POCO.

Your house has a 200 amp or 100 amp? The above is very confusing.
