Closing the San Onofre nuclear power plant is in the "best interests" of Southern California Edison's 4.9 million customers and those ratepayers should be prepared to pay a portion of the shutdown costs.
We billed you extra to build it -- even if you didn't want it -- and now we'll bill you to tear it down...sucker.

"If a utility asset must be retired before the end of its expected life, the utility recovers from customers its reasonable investment costs," Edison wrote.
This seems an appropriate metaphor for modern American business somehow.
