With our massive reliance on Desal water and a growing population, we can expect more expansion in this provision of water. Because desalination is so power intensive there will be a heavy increase in cost to the consumer because of the Federal Governments Carbon Dioxide Tax. Obviously the State will have to pass this tax onto the consumer and with the uncertainty of how much will be compensated over time as budgets are brought down means we will without doubt pay more.
