    The S&L findings, which were made public June 27, 2019 at a United States Energy Association briefing, estimate the cost of CO2 capture to range from $39 to $43 per metric ton, a significant decrease from the last major carbon capture retrofit at the Petra Nova facility in Texas. Given these cost estimates, the $1.3 billion cost to retrofit SJGS can be financed entirely with newly revamped Internal Revenue Code Section 45Q tax credits and will not burden SJGS with additional operating costs.
