Is solar energy cheaper than nuclear energy?

    The first link below suggests that photovoltaic electricity (solar) costs 5 times as much as conventional, which is probably coal+natural gas+nuclear, but it points out the indirect costs of nuclear (mining environmental impacts, problems with waste). It is also from 2006.

    The second link, from 2010, suggests that the costs of the two are about the same now, but with solar costs decreasing and nuclear costs increasing.

    To answer your question reasonably, you should explore some of the many good articles you can find by googling : cost of solar power vs nuclear
