Ground on Solar panels

It's not the gauge I'm concerned about but wire colour. Sorry I wasn't clear. Is green the proper colour for ground or is that reserved for bonding wire?

The electrician and the solar panel electrical engineer,were ok with the gauge. 3 panels totalling 435 watts. The cable run is 15' for each panel to the combiner box on the 10 gauge and 30 feet to the batteries with the controller in between.
