When Arizona first set up its competitive energy solicitation process, Accion Group provided sophisticated guidance and helped create a fair and transparent system that continues to be used. Their broad experience representing both utilities and regulators provided a balanced understanding of the needs of all interested parties.

As consultants to the nuclear decommissioning industry, our experts have executed the following tasks as part of our consulting engagements:
Accion Group has been involved in nuclear decommissioning consulting engagements across the nation, including in New England, New Jersey, Georgia, and Arizona. We provide full staffing to the New Hampshire Nuclear Decommissioning Finance Committee (NDFC), which is charged with overseeing the planning, scope, and funding of decommissioning the Seabrook Nuclear Power Station. As consultants to the NDFC, our team provides full legal services, from drafting the controlling legislation through to the annual determination of funding contributions.
Accion Group is also currently advising Georgia regulators on the construction of two additional nuclear units at the Vogtle Nuclear Station; our review has included decommissioning planning, cost projections, sufficiency of existing decommissioning trust balances, and review of ISFSI planning. Previously, Accion Group advised Arizona regulators on the decommissioning costs of the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station, and worked with New Jersey regulators regarding the acquisition of three nuclear units by Exelon.
