In this Friday, June 13, 2014 photo, Buzz Miller, executive vice president of nuclear development at Southern Co., stands in front of the high-pressure vessel that will be used in a new nuclear reactor at Plant Vogtle power plant in Waynesboro, Ga.

(AP Photo/John Bazemore)WAYNESBORO, Ga. (AP) — The U.S. nuclear industry has started building its first new plants in decades using prefabricated Lego-like blocks meant to save time and money and revive the once promising energy source.
