Feb. 27 — The CEO of San Diego power company Sempra Energy anticipates closing a $9.45 billion deal to buy Dallas electricity provider Oncor soon after a key state regulator’s approval is expected to come down next week. She also said they hope to prove to Texas regulators they can be good enough stewards of the utility that in time they would be allowed to remove a key feature of the deal meant to keep Oncor independent of its parent.
