Hi woodworker and thanks for your question.  That bar is most likely a ground bar but to be certain I would like to see a picture.  Are you able to up load a picture of the box.  Most 100 amp sub-boxes have a bar for the neutrals and a bar for the grounds because they must be separated if the power is origination from another box that the meter feeds.  I hope this helps.   Stukas

Thanks for the pic Woodworker..   The bar on the left is for the ground wires (Bare or Green only).  The bar on the right is for the neutral wires (White only).  You must have a 4 wire feed to this box.  Also don't use the green bonding screw with this application.  Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.  I was on vacation last week.   I hope this helps.   Stukas
