Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

There is no stipulated clearance to an electric meter. Gas meters are 3' electric meters no prohibitions.
