Default Meter Location (was Residential Electricity)

On Thu, 12 May 2016 06:44:56 -0400, "J.B. Wood"

Hello, and perhaps a local ordinance question: Often you see new
town/row house developments that look very nice from the front except
they put the electric meter right in front which, IMHO, detracts from
the view. We have "smart" meters in my neck of the woods. Thanks for
your time and comment. Sincerely,

The power is served from the front side of the house and there is no
easy way to have the meter in the back. They are not going to run the
service lateral all the way around a row of homes and down through the
back yards just to hide a meter.
