Nuclear power is not clean, safe or cheap. It is dirty, dangerous and expensive even when you used an untested, unlicensed and never been built technology like these unicorn like small modular reactors.
Here are few better options for MidAmerican Energy to consider in order:
1. Serious Energy Conservation
2. Real efforts at Energy Efficiency
3. Renewable Energy including large amounts of distributed generation (small wind & solar).
4. No New Nukes or Coal
5. Sustainably extracted Natural Gas (no fracking)
