(Reuters) - U.S. power company PG&E Corp said bit.ly/2T5NcbG on Wednesday it expected capital expenses of about $6.6 billion in 2019 and $6.9 billion in 2020.

In a filing with the U.S. securities and exchange commission, the company said it expects to spend between $5.7 billion and $7 billion annually from 2020 to 2023.

PG&E expects capex to be about $6.5 billion for fiscal 2018.

The company said on Tuesday it secured $5.5 billion in financing from four banks as it prepares to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
