Enron Barred from Trading on California Grid

LCG, Feb. 12, 2002--The California Independent System Operator yesterday prevented further trading by Enron Corp. through the market overseen by the grid manager, for posting less collateral than required and underreporting its trade volume.

"Enron cannot make payments based on speculation or guesses," Enron said in attempting to explain why it apparently underreported by up to $50 million how much power it bought and sold. The bankrupt company said that meter readings concerning service to retail customers and wholesale trade had been incorrect, based on errors by the company responsible.

A disagreement had arisen over the amount of collateral Enron should have provided the ISO, after Enron did not give specific trade volumes to the ISO. Enron does not in fact have retail customers of its own anymore, but ceded them to established utilities.
