Wiring a 100A sub panel

Good Evening,

I am wiring a 100A square D sub panel off a GE PowerMark Plus 150A main panel. Im using 2 gauge wire, and I was looking for a place in the main panel to attach a neutral lug kit to the bus bar for the neutral. I noticed that next to the main neutral feed, there was an available lug. Is it possible to utilize that instead of attaching to bus bar? See attached pictures.

Welcome to the forums.

Yes.... you can use that lug for the neutral connection for you sub panel.
Don't forget since it's a sub panel you'll need to run 4 wires.... 2 hots, a neutral and a ground.
You'll need a location to attach the ground wire.

I see you have GE panel, but has non-GE breakers. All breaks should be GE THQL or THQP (thin breakers).

Also just a fyi, if the feeder is #2 aluminum the max feeding breaker by the NEC is 90A.

I'm using 2 gauge wire,
I hope that's copper. I'd use either #3 copper or #1 aluminum.
