Good points but: "If a 1100 MWe nuclear plant is built..." You left out the cost of lawfare. Every nuclear plant proposal, the Sierra 'Club' files a lawsuit. On the other hand, the current practice and technology in nuclear reactors is sub-optimal, new developments hold MUCH greater promise (Pebble Bed, Traveling Wave, LFTR) for increased efficiency, greater safety, less waste--lower cost. The operative word in the quote is "IF".
