Bonding Screw

Am I correct that since this new box will be our primary panel we are to turn the green bonding screw in clockwise? We have a separate earth ground rod that will connect to the ground strip. I assume Siemens does this in the event someone wants to use the box as a sub panel or main panel. Thanks

If that panel will have the first means of disconnect after the meter the bond screw is installed.

No, the GEC from the ground rod connects to the neutral bus. The bonding screw bonds the panel can and ground bar to the grounded neutral.
