I am running my conductors 300ft in PVC to reach a 800 amp 120/208v distribution panel. My question is what size EGC do I need? the code says 1/0 copper, but because of the length does the EGC need to be larger?

Thanks.

If you up the size of your conductors for voltage drop or any other reason you must increase the EGC accordingly.
