Nuclear: Unfortunately, the $7 billion price tag of a single AP1000 nuke plant exceeds the entire financial portfolio of most utilities. Thus, the need for loan guarantees or some way to finance big projects which, in the long-run, are cheaper for the consumer and society as a whole. Almost all of the nuclear plant fiascos of the 1970s and 1980s were actually financing and planning debacles, not a fault of the technology.
