Since we are on this subject:

Would someone clarify who is responsible for the design of utility poles used in electric power distribution? Civil/Structural or Electrical Engr?

That is a lot of information to obtain.  Good starting points: 
 
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers:
http://www.ieee.org/portal/site
They develop the standards like the IEEE 693

American Public Power Plant Association:
http://www.appanet.org/
 
Electric Power Research Institute:
http://my.epri.com/portal/server.pt
 
For some of the information you requested, you will have to go to the vendors.

Anyone know where there is a good online summary of things involving powerplants, substations and the like.

I'm currently interested in getting info related to High-voltage cable weights, bend radii, clamping devices, connectors/splice, isolators (for seismic) etc...
