One of the biggest problems we would face is money. Were would we find enough money to fund this project. Banks are not lining up at the door to come fund this idea no matter how good it could be for the state. But if we were to make a power plant other factors have to go into the idea. For instance the safety of the plant. Is it safe enough for people to work on and how many deaths happen per year. An the plants that we have right next to New York if a incident occurs then it would be chaos getting them out of the city. Nuclear power would be very beneficial towards the city but the cost of it will be to expensive.
