Early Friday morning the California Senate released their changes to AB 1054 which addresses the wildfire risk for each of the state's utilities, Mizuho analyst Paul Fremont tells investors in a research note. The analyst views the changes as "constructive" for the California utilities. Utilities will fund $7.5B of the $18B Wildfire Mitigation fund, and will be able to get recovery, but not a return on, $5B worth of wildfire mitigation capital expenditures, the analyst points out. Further, until PG&E (PCG) emerges from bankruptcy, which is expected in March 2020, the Wildfire Mitigation Fund will only pay out 40% of allowed claims, adds Fremont. He keeps a Buy rating on Edison International (EIX) and Neutral rating on PG&E.
