Where does this solid ground connect if the box is not metal? Looks like there is a screw for it in the box but not sure.

Welcome to the forums.

The solid ground wire remains unused in the box until it's needed.
When you connect a ceiling fan or ceiling light..... it will have a ground wire that gets attached to that ground wire.
