I lent my code book out and am having a mental block -- does code specify the minimum clearance between the meter socket and windows & doors? I know there's a 30" horizontal working space clearance but can that include windows and doors?

Thanks.
Brad

No but the serving electric utility may have some rules since it is their cash register (we require 2 ft and 3 ft, others may have different dimensions).
