Hmmm. Actually this is a great find. The mass about of nuclear is cool to see and does bring in Yucca mountain into play in Nevada. That goes along with this viewtopic.php?p=1324874#p1324874 very well. Along with solar that is coming to ETS2, Wyoming should bring Coal and Texas should perhap bring Gas. Colorado is bring wind with turbines.

May Nuclear gets in by the time we get to Texas or more East. But Central Texas, South Texas, Phoenix, LA and South Washington could be enough do bring Nuclear with Texas along with gas.

Well, out of experience of hauling loads from them, Coal plants produce a waste byproduct known as bottom ash and fly ash. Normally hauled off by either dump trailer or pneumatic trailers, this waste byproduct is used for other manufacturing of materials.
Bottom ash can be a aggregate alternative for roads and driveways, also used in aggriculture
Fly ash is used the process of concrete as a plasticizer for portland cement, also in some products for the oil field industry

On this topic, this interactive map by EIA is also useful. It shows all power plants along with refineries and even transmission lines:
