Adding a breaker to a sub panel...PICS
 
I need to add a 220 breaker and outlet to this subpanel. From what I have read it should have a ground bar and a neutral bar. it appears to only have a neutral bar. Can someone clarify this for me? Also if you happen to know exactly what brand/model of breaker I need from looking at the pic I would appreciate it.

I'm no expert, but i'm guessing the ground is attached to the box itself? Don't take my word however, wait for someone a bit more experienced. I've only ever worked with BASIC 110v electrical, like adding outlets and switches and things like that.

As I replied in the other forum. you need to add a ground bar kit that is made for this panel. The cover will have the brand, then you will know what type of breaker.

As I replyed in another forum. You can use a generic ground bar if you drill and tap the screw holes for machine screws. and It is a generic siemans panel and will take any breaker classified for a siemans panel.
