In the three years following EPAct 2005, the DOE failed to make a single loan guaranty. The attempt failed in every way. An application for a loan guaranty could run over a thousand pages, cost up to 5% of the project cost and the costs were required to be paid up front prior to the actual approval of the guaranty. These requirements were so onerous that very few applicants even tried to get the guaranty. These requirements have been changed substantially as described later in the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
