Investment in nuclear energy stocks, in spite of recent setbacks, is still considered a good decision. Investing in nuclear energy continues to pay off because it is the most inexpensive way of generating electricity. This is not the case with other green energy types such as solar power and wind.

Fossil fuels such as coal with enough capacity to light a 60 watt light bulb for four days, cannot even come close to the ability of the same amount of nuclear energy to power the same bulb for 685 years! Other forms of energy that entail the use of fossil fuels radiate a good deal of CO2, which is not the case with nuclear energy.
Many people are not fans of nuclear energy because
