I would have to say no. Look at 230-9(A). Unless your lateral is open conductors or a multiconductor cable without a overall outer jacket, It can be as close to the window as you like. A meter socket is accessible from the ground, so why would it matter if the conductors where 3' from a window, when I could go outside and touch them?
Meter clearances hear must apply to Electric service requirements from local power company. Its a good idea to get a current ESR from your local power co.Has all the information,clearences and requirements
