    Interesting analysis.
    One thing you did not take into account ist availability.
    Solar energy is only available during the day and production is a lot lower in winter compared to summer.
    Wind energy also has a non-constant output.

    So if you want to replace a nuclear power plant solely with solar and wind energy you need short and long time storage infrastucture to adjust the energy output to the demand.

    To compare these two energy sources to the continuous and planable output of a nuclear power plant you would have to include storage costs and storage losses into your calculations.
