About Us

Alexander Publications is the premier supplier of technical books, training manuals
and videos for workers at electric utilities. Our publications are used by linemen,
engineers, metermen, trainers, substation operators, utility managers,
electrical contractors, and safety directors.

We focus on transmission, distribution, substations, and metering — everything
except generation.

Every item in the product line has been carefully selected for its ability to help
utility workers save time, save money, work safely, and become more productive.

Founded in 1995, Alexander Publications is headquartered in Meridian, Idaho.

Rich Alexander selects our publications based on their ability
to clearly explain topics of importance to power industry
workers. He is the author of 20 of our books, edited more
than 100 other books, and has read or examined every
publication we sell. He knows our products well, and can
be contacted by e-mail or telephone for advice. He is a good
listener, respects everyone, and welcomes suggestions for
improving our publications.

consultant to electric utilities and others, and an occasional author.
He is Managing Editor of Handbook for Electricity Metering,
Ninth Edition published by Edison Electric Institute.
He has a BS degree with honors in electrical engineering
