There is. How is it will be to accomplish depends entirely on the version of ACAD you're using. For a simple 2D elevation, just rotate the UCS 90 degrees around the X and then type PLAN. That should give you a front view. To get the sides and back, just rotate the UCS 90 around the Z.
For the electrical plan, I'd copy the drawing do the following:
Get to the front view like above and draw a line at the height you want the view to be at. Use the SLICE command and trace the line you drew when it asks for the cutting plane. You then move the upper part off to one side. Now rotate back to the top view.
