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.

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).
