Nuclear a-go-go

Mini Nuclear Plant is safe [engadget.com]: This is awesome! So let's do the math.
10,000 homes
10 years
12 months/year
75 USD/month (average although in my case it's usually 100)

Total: 90 million USD
Cost: 25 million USD
Profit: 65 million USD

Of course this doesn't take into account infrastructure maintenance, delivery fees, etc. But even if all of that totaled 30 million USD there would still be a profit of 35 million USD after 10 years. Maybe not the best, but it's relatively clean power, right? If co-ops could be setup this sort of thing has the potential to put a hurt on many large power providers. Interesting.
