852. While it costs about the same to run nuclear plants as other types of power plants, it is the fixed costs that stem from building nuclear plants that makes it more expensive for them to generate electricity.
Meaning:
While it costs about the same to run nuclear plants as other types of power plants,
it is the fixed costs that stem from building nuclear plants
that makes it more expensive for them to generate electricity.
Error: Singular “it” is referring to plural Nuclear Plants.

The costs of running NPs are same as running other type of plants.
The fixed costs make NPs more expensive to generate electricity
Fixed costs stem from building nuclear plants

(A) While it costs about the same to run nuclear plants as other types of power plants, it is the fixed costs that stem from building nuclear plants that makes it more expensive for them to generate electricity.
As pointed above

(B) While the cost of running nuclear plants is about the same as for other types of power plants, the fixed costs that stem from building nuclear plants make the electricity they generate more expensive.
Correct

(C) Even though it costs about the same to run nuclear plants as for other types of power plants, it is the fixed costs that stem from building nuclear plants that makes the electricity they generate more expensive.
Plural “costs” singular “makes”

(D) It costs about the same to run nuclear plants as for other types of power plants, whereas the electricity they generate is more expensive, stemming from the fixed costs of building nuclear plants.
“as for other types of power plants” awkward.
(E) The cost of running nuclear plants is about the same as other types of power plants, but the electricity they generate is made more expensive because of the fixed costs stemming from building nuclear plants.
“made more expensive” who is making this ? Awkward writing.
