    It takes between 7-12 years to build a nuclear power plant. A more energy efficient approach is to utilize conservation and energy programs, which can be implemented in 6 months to 2 years.

    The site listed below shows a timeline for nuclear power plant construction. It takes about 18 months for the pre-construction process (work authorization, excavation, plant orders, etc.), 36 months for the actual construction of the plant, beginning with pouring concrete and moving through placement of nuclear parts and other steps, before reaching the 6 month start-up period. There also has to be a review of the application and multiple safety and structural inspections. Total, it takes about 60 months or 5 years.
