Service line through the detached garage?

Does anyone know if I can attached our service line to our detached garage. Run it through the garage, then underground to the meter?

Probably not. You might be able to go along the outside of the garage, but I doubt through it.

Probably not, but call your power company. Everything above the meter must follow their rules. They may be able to raise the service drop so it goes over your garage with adequate clearance.

Or put the meter and main disconnect on the garage and run the feeder to the house as a sub panel.
