I have two wires from the power supply to my main panel and no ground electrode wire; how do I connect the ground wire from the main panel to the ground rod? The circuits? the receptacles? Also, how do I wire the panel box? now this what I did, I connected the neutral to the bus bar then connected the ground wire to its bus bar and linked a wire from the neutral bus to the ground bus. I took a wire from the bus bar of ground to the ground rod. what is your advice to these connections.

    It sounds as if you do not have too much experience with wiring. Setting up a main panel is usually best left to either a professional or others who have had a good deal of experience. There are some serious risks, both immediately and long term.

    Honestly, your question is FAR too vague. Either re-word it to make more sense, or better yet, get a pro in there to fix you up. What is your level of experience with working on a breaker panel, and wiring in general? Commented Sep 10, 2015 at 13:30

If you don't have one, you need a grounding terminal.

Wiring a panel is not difficult, but definitely check your local code to make sure that panel wiring isn't required to be done by a licensed electrician.

All of your other questions can be answered with simple Google searches. You should really do research on your own before asking very broad questions.
