Utilities may bill customers for future legal damages and for settlements from the deadly 2017 wildfires that caused more than $10 billion in insured losses, even if the companies’ mismanagement caused the blazes.

Yes, utilities are not government, but they are government sanctioned and government controlled monopolies.
