Economics of Nuclear Power Relative to other power generating plants, nuclear reactors require large initial capital cost. The operating cost is usually low, and over the life of the plant, nuclear can compete with alternative sources of energy for base load power. If the savings in the cost of pollution abatement and health-related issues is included, nuclear power can turn out to be even cheaper than fossil power.
