110 out of 220

An electrical supply house will have a special grease to apply to the wire/terminal.
The grease is supposed to retard oxidation on the aluminum and make for a better connection.
Alternately, the recommended procedure is to weld a copper "end" to the aluminum wire. $$$$
Aluminum is softer than copper and, over time, will flow, or loosen.
Just keep everything tight and check it often.
