I'm preparing to install a 100amp subpanel in my garage. I've already purchased the panel and I'm curious as to what to do with the bonding screw included. The panel did not come with a ground bus bar so do I need to pick one up? Thanks, Marcus

Is the garage attached to the house?
How many wires are you running from the power source to the garage panel?

The garage is sort of attached by a "breeze way". I was planning on using #4 copper(3 conductor & ground)? I'm not sure if I'm going to bury it or snake it through the breeze way. It's approximately 25ft.

Throw the bonding screw in the trash. Buy a grounding bus bar.
