Electric Meter location

I have an existing electric meter that I want to move to the opposite side of the house with new underground service cable. I already have a new 200 Amp service in this location in the Basement on the opposite side. The new location has a gas meter on the front corner of the house. Then, there is a bump out 2 feet from south to north that then heads towards the garage (west)8 feet. This is an older home and the protrusion is where there is a built in hutch in the Dining Room. OK! Then, obviously it goes back in toward the Main house. There is a 16 inch area between the west hutch bumpout if you will to the attached Garage wall. There is a roof over this area and is protected from the elements. My question is if I will be able to locate my new Meter Socket in this area? Any comments appreciated.

This part you will have to talk to the POCO first to see what they will recomeoned where the meter socket will be located and many POCO will have their regulatons book to show to you if need to { most will be on the website so you can able find it as well }

So it is POCO final call where they want to be located.
