Cost of retained earnings

My question is how to calculate cost of capital in case a company has its funds only through equity shares & its reserves?
Then how to calculate cost of retained earnings (reserves). As it is a major constituent of company's long term funds.

Reply to Question Regarding Retained Earnings

The retained earnings can be calculated as follows:
K'E(i.e. Cost of retained earnings) = KE * (1 - F)
Where KE = Cost of Equity, F = Flotation cost
In case flotation cost is not given you may take KE = K'E
Suggestions welcomed...
