I have been a supporter of Nuclear Power for some time, but am not happy about the lack of clarity around the tangible costs to Ratepayers. Can you explain:
1) Typical costs of nuclear power plants
2) how they avoid cost overruns from delays, lawsuits, etc
3) how waste is accounted for - do the nuclear folks add money to a fund to build Yucca Mountain, etc
4) variable costs
