APPA is offering a newly revised third edition of its Electric Utility Basics manual. The manual is written so as to bring the fundamentals of the electric utility industry down to a level that everyone can understand. It is designed to be a useful resource for public power governing boards, staff, and customers, as well as legislators and regulators.

The publication was written by John Miner of Collaboration Unlimited, who is an instructor for the APPA Academy. It includes new and revised sections on electricity behavior, utility infrastructure, system operations, industry and business structure, and the future of the electric utility industry.

The APPA Academy will offer a four-part webinar series on electric utility basics that will cover generation, substations, transmission, and distribution. The webinars can be purchased individually or as a series.
