Are desalination plants more expensive than coal plants to make?

    Good question, Beckettgordon.  Each one of these facilities is going to costs more or less depending on its capacity, but it is hard to compare them exactly to begin with because one facility is producing water, and another producing electricity.  Just as an example though, one particular desalination plant that was proposed for Texas was going to cost around $400 million, and an average sized coal power plant costs somewhere around $600 million.  Because we aren’t getting too specific here, I would say that they are in the same ballpark.
