I would have thought that the United States needed every bit of energy that it could get it hands on; whether for internal consumption or for export purposes. However, this article in The Economist suggests otherwise:

IT IS the sort of thing you would expect to see in China, not in the pine forests of rural Georgia. On the banks of the sluggish Savannah river towers one of the world’s biggest cranes. It is helping build two nuclear reactors, to add to the two already up and running at the Vogtle power plant. It testifies to the mammoth efforts that have been made in recent years to revive America’s nuclear industry—and to the disappointing results.
