Nuclear power has ramp-up and ramp-down times measured in hours or days. Because of this, it is strictly a baseload power source, just like coal. For peaking power, you need hydro, natural gas, or storage.
(Solar and wind are strange critters from a load-management perspective. They have the response times needed for peaking power, but not the availability.)
I don't know where you're getting $10 from -- the music Pandora's streamed to me over the years would barely fit on a 128GB SD card, and I can't find those for less than $30.
Doubt isn't the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith. - Paul Tillich, German theologian and historian
