Center of the meter is about 30", the PoCo requires 36" to 72" if I'm not mistaken... I had put it at what I had assumed to be 60" above grade CL of meter.
I was mistaken in the original post, this is actually in Appalachian Electric Power's area, they don't require inspections, and the service was brought online as soon as there was a wall to hang it on way back when during the first rough-in stages. At the time it met the requirements.

Sounds as bad as AEP. Your meter socket would meet their specifications!!! They always tell me to put it in at eye level when I'm working in their service area. All you have to do is produce the 2' tall electrician that put this one in.
I remember the firt time I worked in their area, I asked for a service rep to come out & tell me where to put the meter socket. They told me they didn't do that and that if I could see one of their poles from where I wanted to put the meter, that would be a good location. Can you imagine doing that with Allegheny Power?
Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
