Having participated in reviews of the construction of various renewable resources, as well as conventional fossil, nuclear, and hydro projects, Accion Group is experienced in assessing both the adequacy and prudence of construction project management processes and procedures. Our consultants have also audited and reported on construction budgets and compliance with environmental and other regulatory requirements.
Accion was previously engaged by the Georgia Public Service Commission to monitor the construction of Georgia Power Company’s McDonough 3 Unit, a 2400 MW, combined cycle project as part of a conversion from coal to natural gas. Recent reviews also include a 1.5 MW wind turbine project and the construction of two nuclear power reactors, with the sufficiency of financing, credit assurances, and contractual obligations being a necessary part of both reviews. Additionally, our consultants have provided services related to prudence reviews conducted on behalf of regulators for several nuclear construction projects, including Palo Verde, South Texas Project, Comanche Peak, San Onofre, and Seabrook.
As part of Accion’s competitive procurement services, Accion consultants have reviewed the construction plans for projects ranging from 1,000 MW coal-fired generating plants, to the retirement and conversion of coal-fired to natural gas generation, as well as utility scale solar and wind projects
