So are you willing to pay for all electric utility companies to replace meters that read out in kWh with meters that read out in joules, at the same time for all customers in order to satisfy franchise regulations that require a city-wide (or larger) uniform rate?

Engineers use SI units to avoid stupid errors that have bad effects, like certain satellites falling out of the sky.

If we stick to the internationally standardized units, it will be easier to compare energy and power with other instances of measurements of energy and power.
