You build them right, or you don't build them at all. What's the value of a 1.5 GW electric power source, with a life span of 80 years? To the utility company? To the COnsumer?
I just had a 3 hour blackout yesterday, so to me the answer is:
You build them right!

Also with a life span of 80 years, I can think of few other investments as stable in value as a nuclear powerplant.
