Two business ,side by side with a firewall separation. If there are main disconects located outside, Can a feeder pass through one structure to supply the other. sec #230.6 is about service conductors. what applies to feeder going through one building to serve another ?

There is nothing to prevent such an installation in the NEC.

The only rules I saw here in Mass is they wanted it sleeved and fire caulking applied.

I'm thinking of 230.3 and that is also regarding service conductors. I guess that's because Article 230 is titled "Services".

If there's only one service I don't know of an issue.
