Germany shows that even if your cost of building a reactor was zero, you could still have the reactor shut down due to other issues.

"Following the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, Germany has permanently shut down eight of its 17 reactors and pledged to close the rest by the end of 2022." - Wikipedia
