Attach the ground wire to the ceiling fan as shown here. The ceiling fan ground screw provides a grounding means in the event of a short circuit or bare wire coming into contact with the fan, which you could touch and get shocked. It is imperative that this connection be made. This bonds the ceiling fan with the ground connection in your junction box.
