Enron Information Center

Public Citizen was one of the first national organizations to blow the whistle on Enron's corrupt ties to government and document the failure of energy deregulation. Follow the links to read our extensive coverage of Enron's rise and fall, to find out why energy deregulation will never work in the United States and what types of reforms must be implemented to ensure consumers have access to affordable and reliable energy.

Click here for an update on the fines, settlements and disgorgement of ill-gotten gains imposed upon energy companies for causing the California energy crisis.

The fact that former Enron executives Ken Lay and Jeffrey Skilling have been found guilty will be little comfort to the company's shareholders and retirees who lost billions. Nor will it cheer consumers in the West, who lived through an unnecessary and manufactured "energy crisis" that stemmed from the freewheeling and corrupt energy trading system that Lay and Skilling helped create.

Because Public Citizen does not accept funds from corporations, professional associations or government agencies, we can remain independent and follow the truth wherever it may lead. But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
