ISP Unbundling circuits

On a slightly related topic, a US-based colo outfit used by a company
I work with wants a fee to disconnect power to the cage.  The tenant
had been there for years and, at contract renewal time, was lobbied
hard ($$) by the colo company to reduce power consumption.

The tenant worked for a few months and freed up 20 power circuits.
The colo then said that they had a disconnect fee for each power
circuit.

Now, I think a reasonable fee is $0.   The colo wants considerably more.
I won't bias you with the figure yet... please let me know what you
think is reasonable, either by experience or just as a thought exercise.

Thanks,
