      Off the top of my head.

      Pros:
      - Proven safest method to produce power on a per GWh basis
      - environmentally friendly
      - able to provide massive amounts of power in a relatively small footprint

      Cons:
      - slow startup
      - high commissioning costs
      - a lot of water use

      So, to sum, I'm not sure about the economics. They probably depend a lot on location and specific use.
      As far as safety and cleanliness, they're pretty much unrivaled.
