The odds of a ground rod on the opposite side of a structure creating an arc is about zip. Look at the subdivisions where the houses have the meter boxes facing each other. Are those bonded together since they are fairly close and in a straight line? Nope. However, there is a higher chance that they will arc. AND, grounding to the ground wire of an electrical outlet is acceptable in most cases, but must be done by a licensed electrician, which the installer probably won't be. Even a house ground will not be sufficient if the meter box is hit directly.

Haven't logged on in almost 2 years. Haven't done installs in a long time. Good luck.
