Harry and the Accion consultants took very complex material and readily digested it for us to make the important decisions required by law. They were diligent in covering specific details and in-depth explanations of both material and the underlying rationale, as well as history of the subject matter. They are always thorough and pay close attention to detail.

Regulation

Accion Group's involvement in the energy consulting industry includes significant work assisting regulators in formulating regulatory policies, and applying these policies to the "real world" in a manner that equitably balances the financial and operational integrity of utilities, and the interests of affected customers. Thanks to Accion Group's extensive experience in designing, advocating, and establishing regulatory policy, our consultants are frequently called upon by both regulated utilities and utility regulators in many jurisdictions to provide advice on regulatory strategy and compliance.
