Nuclear Provision: explaining the cost of cleaning up Britain's nuclear legacy

"The Nuclear Provision is the best estimate of how much it will cost to clean up the UK’s 17 earliest nuclear sites over a programme lasting around 120 years."

So by my simple maths, there is a running cost by the NDA of about £3 billion a year and then its over some 120 years. In simple sums that's about £360 billion (todays rates).
Now the maths I'd have problems with is how to say that financially its a viable and sensible power source option?
