Very true. Harnessing energy from the sun is better than nuclear, as there really isn't any repercussion if a unit fails. Unfortunately it's expensive.
And your 2nd point is valid as well. As the number of reactors increase, the odds that an accident will occur also increases. Especially if the nation decides to cut corners or employs people who aren't 100% qualified (I'm looking at you, USSR. Really, test your failsafes to see if they really are failsafes? That's just plain stupid).
