Guide to Grounding a Panel or Sub Panel
Electrical Question: I’m confused about adding a sub-panel. I bought a GE PowerMark Gold Load Center (125amps).

Please a) confirm I’m doing this right, and b) shed some light on the green screw (in this box specifically, if possible). I appreciate your time, very much. Your book is priceless for a DIY’er, and I’ve already mentioned it to others.

I bought your Home Electrical Wiring Book and love it!
This electrical wiring question came from Pete Frank, in Erie, Pennsylvania.
