The DoE is pushing for funding small modular nuclear reactors (SMR).
These SMRs are designed to be pre-assembled in a factory and shipped to location. They would range in size from 50 MW units to 300 MW units.
These plants could come on line relatively quickly, providing a “carbon free” source of cheap, domestic electrical power that would benefit American homeowners, business owners and provide a competitive edge to US manufacturers.

Pretty forward thinking, now that the US Government has gotten out of the manned spaceflight business.
This spaceport isn’t entirely free-market, it is being build by the state government of New Mexico, but its purpose is to service private contractors like Virgin Galactic.
