I remember reading about an aircraft carrier being used to supply electrical power to a major town on the west coast. This was in the 1930's and the city's main power plant broke and the USS Lexington(CV-3) was sent and served for several weeks as the main power plant. Just think what a nuclear powered ship could do....
