AEHI expects Idaho nuclear site approval soon and seeks new states to build more plants to address “Global Warming”

Boise, Idaho, October 30, 2009 Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTC: AEHI.PK): AEHI projects at least one of their Idaho nuclear sites will receive local approval early in the first quarter of 2010. The approval will trigger investments predominantly from international sources for the plant site.

 

In addition to the Colorado site, the company is seeking other states that have indicated interest in an advanced reactor including Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Nevada and Utah.

 

Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO and a 45 year nuclear industry veteran said, The EPA recently projected 180 new nuclear reactors would be needed to significantly reduce US emissions and meet energy needs by 2050. However, they did not consider that most of the nation’s 104 nuclear reactors would be past their useful life. Therefore, almost 300 new reactors would actually be needed while only 30 or so are planned. If the large regulated utilities are not going to help with this challenge by replacing their coal plants with clean nuclear, we certainly are willing and actively seeking new sites and investors to help address this critical problem. If we build electric cars to reduce emissions, but our utilities continue to build carbon power plants like coal and natural gas we have gained nothing environmentally.”

A good editorial to share October 21, 2009

I came across this editorial from the Pueblo Chieftian. It is worth a read. When so much of the media is anti-nuke and ill-informed, it is refreshing to read something from people who get it.

Press Release 9:15 AM EDT

AEHI Submits Application for New Idaho Nuclear Plant Site

Boise, Idaho, October 20, 2009 – Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTC: AEHI.PK): AEHI submitted a Comprehensive Plan amendment application in Payette County, Idaho for the development of a nuclear power generating facility on approximately 5,100 acres of land. This is a key step to developing an additional nuclear site in Idaho. Our Elmore County rezone application is still in process. During this period other Idaho communities and groups began to learn of the significant economic benefits an advanced nuclear plant brings to areas particularly rural communities. Some US communities have issued statements to the press inviting nuclear developers and several states have even offered tax incentives.

Don Gillispie, AEHI Chairman and CEO said, “We believe President Obama’s recent pro-nuclear remarks not only reflect the nation’s, but the world’s view that nuclear power is the key to addressing Climate Change. His remarks align him with the world’s other economic powers and the UN’s consensus on how to address Climate Change. While renewable energy has almost universal support, many now realize it can only provide about one-third of the nation’s electricity when fully deployed due to intermittent reliability. A clean, highly reliable, base load power source like nuclear is also needed to stabilize our electric grids, keep electricity costs low and replace carbon sources that are harming our environment.”

Obama supports "all of the above" approach to energy generation October 16, 2009

It was very refreshing to hear President Obama restate his support for nuclear energy yesterday. At a townhall meeting in Louisiana, Obama states support for all clean energy sources – a view held by mainstream America – and singled out nuclear power. His remarks, beginning 5:45, were

“We need to increase domestic energy production. Theres no reason why technologically, we can’t employ nuclear energy in a safe and effective way. Japan does it and France does it, and it doesn’t have greenhouse gas emissions. It would be stupid for us not to do that in a much more effective way.”

Obama’s energy secretary, Steven Chu, has also strongly supported nuclear’s role in our national energy policy, as he realizes nuclear alone can provide low-cost, emissions-free, baseload energy.

With around 65 new nuclear reactors under construction worldwide, the U.S. needs to follow up these words with commitment, or risk being left out of the global economy, falling further behind in reliable power generation, industrial capacity and carbon reduction.The words supporting an all-of-the-above stance are nice, Mr. President, but now back them up with policy.

We recently produced this one-page handout for public meetings. While there’s a growing appreciation for the role nuclear power plays in creating carbon-free energy, there are still a lot of myths out there and handouts like this will help set the record straight. To see it at full-size, you may click and drag it to your desktop or save it to a folder.
