is there a limit to how much nuclear power a plant can produce or could you just keep making it bigger?

    There are some limits to the size of a reactor, due to cooling requirements and threat, even if remote, of a chain-reaction occuring. On the other hand, you could keep adding new reactors to the same power plant site. It might not make sense in some cases though. A large power plant will provide energy for a larger area, and at some point the cost of transporting energy (a lot of it is lost in the process, and the longer the distance, the larger the loss) will outweigh the cost savings of building on the same site.
