Below is our news release about the temporary suspension of trading. As an aside we would like to point out our funding commitment with Roswell Capital Partners is still valid. Roswell has now waived the section of the contract that indicates we can’t have a series of consecutive days in which we are not actively trading.

BOISE, Idaho, December 15, 2010 – Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI; http://www.aehipower.com) today announced that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), on December 14, 2010, issued an order to temporarily suspend trading of the company’s common stock because of questions that have been raised about the accuracy of certain publicly disseminated information regarding the company. The suspension was effective at 9:30 a.m. EST on December 14, 2010, and terminates at 11:59 p.m. EST on December 28, 2010.

“The SEC has notified AEHI that the inquiry should not be construed as an indication by the SEC that any violations of law have occurred. We plan to fully cooperate with the SEC and to address the concerns that they have raised,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.

The SEC has not notified AEHI whether the temporary suspension was prompted by the submission of any specific complaints. However, local anti-nuclear groups and certain vocal opponents of AEHI have taken responsibility for this action in press releases, online forums and financial blogs.

AEHI will now work closely with the SEC to resolve any questions the agency may have in an effort to remove the temporary suspension as soon as possible. About Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc.

AEHI CEO Don Gillispie To The Federal Government: Please Correct Approval Process And Loan Guarantees For Nuclear Plants In 2011 December 14, 2010

Posted by cleanidahoenergy in AEHI, approval process, nuclear industry.

BOISE, Idaho, December 13, 2010 – “Nuclear power holds enormous promise for meeting America’s need for clean, reliable, low-cost electricity, but the promise will only be realized if the U.S. government addresses its energy policy,” says Don Gillispie, CEO of Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc (OTCQB:AEHI; http://www.aehipower.com), a Eagle, ID-based company that plans to build new nuclear power plants and markets nuclear desalination systems. “We need a real energy plan,” he says.

“The right energy policy would streamline the approval process for new nuclear plants and greatly expand the U.S. government’s program to guarantee loans to stimulate domestic financing of those plants,” Gillispie argues. “It wouldn’t even cost taxpayers any money. With loan guarantees, the federal government is only required to pay if nuclear plant developers default on their loans and the chances of that are slim considering the money these plants can generate. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was created to encourage clean energy developers with loan guarantees, among other things, but now we are greatly limiting them for nuclear power and even charging prohibitive upfront fees to qualify — hardly an incentive.”

According to Gillispie policy changes are urgently needed. The numbers tell a stark and worrisome story. The U.S. has 104 nuclear reactors, which make 20% of the nation’s electricity. Within about 25 years many of those plants will have reached the end of their lives, and will have to be replaced. Meanwhile, approximately 600 coal plants would cost too much to upgrade to meet new pollution rules, so they will be taken out of service; some are already in the process. In order to continue meeting the nation’s current baseload electricity demand, the country will need 300 or more new nuclear plants within 30 years or so. “We’d have to be on a path of 10-15 new nuclear plants a year when you include load growth starting now,” Gillispie says.

However, the country hasn’t even taken a small step on that path. While U.S. companies proposed building about 30 new nuclear plants over the next 10 years or so, most of the proposals are currently stalled. Plants that are on track to be built include two units at the existing Vogtle site in Georgia owned by Southern Company and two units AEHI plans to build in Payette County, Idaho.  The AEHI plant will fall behind Vogtle due to the lengthy approval process involved with building on a previously undeveloped site, also known as a greenfield site. Even if the stalled proposals get moving, they won’t be nearly enough. “AEHI is planning for the potential to install an additional four units in the future while everyone else is talking about one or two,” says Gillispie. “At this rate, we’ll never be able to meet the country’s need for baseload electricity.”

What would greatly help speed up the development of nuclear plants? Probably, the most important step would be for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to approve designs and new sites more expeditiously, Gillispie says. “NRC officials are telling people it takes 54 months to approve an existing, but enhanced U.S. design that’s already shown to be reliable and safe and potentially even longer to approve a new greenfield nuclear site. Any industrial development, including mining and heavy manufacturing, are nearly impossible to get approved today. It is apparent our children will live at a lower standard if we do not wake-up and give business leaders some say in this country’s future, instead of catering to those who oppose everything in the name of the environment to a fault.

Life has risk, but there are even greater risks without proven technologies being used effectively.  Western nuclear power has been proven safer than all other energy sources to date, yet getting plants built remains far too time consuming.” Nuclear plant approval delays mean that potential investors are instead putting their money in alternatives like wind, which can be approved and built in as little as a year—but can only supply a fraction of the country’s demand for power with high cost, poor reliability and large federal subsidies, not to mention it cannot provide needed baseload power to our electric grid.

That’s why Gillispie is encouraging his representatives in Congress to push the NRC to move faster or to pass legislation to streamline the approval process.

The second step would be to provide more loan guarantees for nuclear plants without excessive fees. Such guarantees enable companies to line up financing for new plants at an affordable cost. “There’s almost no risk to the government,” says Gillispie, “because nuclear plant developers will not default on those loans.”

The NRC must move expeditiously in order to fulfill the requests for more nuclear power now seen at a local level.  AEHI’s own experience shows public opinion for nuclear is at an all-time high. At a key December 2nd county planning and zoning meeting, an overwhelming majority of the participants were in favor of zoning changes to permit the construction of AEHI’s proposed plant.  On December 9th, those same county officials approved a recommendation to rezone 500 acres in rural Idaho, which has been designated as the future site for AEHI’s proposed nuclear power plant.  “If the government will help us move faster, the nuclear industry will be able to deliver the critical power that America needs,” says Gillispie.

Joe Lucid fraud testimony uncovered December 13, 2010

One of our consultants, Martin Johncox, has been assisting us since March of 2007 and recently testified in-person to the Payette County Commission about our plans to build a nuclear power plant there. Johncox’s testimony shows just how far some of our opponents, such as “Joe Lucid” (not his real name) will go to disparage our company with false information – up to and including perjury. Thankfully, Payette County officials have rejected Lucid’s testimony. Johncox’s blog post is available here or you can read it below as well:

Supporting progress and exposing a liar

From http://alexanderandassociates.com/2010/12/09/supporting-progress-and-exposing-a-liar/

On Dec. 2, I provided testimony to the Payette County Planning and Zoning Commission regarding the application by Alternate Energy Holdings Inc. to develop a nuclear reactor. As many of you know, I have been with AEHI since March 2007 doing public relations, news media consulting, social media and community organizing. Thanks to the efforts of Alexander and Associates and others involved in AEHI, written and verbal testimony was 2-to-1 in favor of the nuclear plant last week.

Below is the transcript of my comments to the Planning and Zoning Commission.

“Good evening everybody. How do you do? Thanks for giving me this opportunity. My name is Martin Johncox, 4948 Kootenai Street in Boise. You may recall, right about this time a year ago, I was sitting in front of you telling you about my experiences doing community organizing for AEHI here, talking to people and their concerns. I can tell you I’ve been doing that again for the past few weeks and the economic conditions out there are just as bad.

“Something I would like to talk to you about this time that’s happened in the past year. There’s a practice called shorting stocks and there are a number of investors that are doing this with our stock. Basically involves betting that the price of a company’s stock will go down and these people are actively trying to drive our stock price down. Now, our stock price is not really your concern but I think you need to keep that in mind as you look at some of the testimony you’ve received. In particular, I’ve had some interactions with a fellow named Joe Lucid and I think that is not his real name. I believe he has submitted testimony to you. I suggest you consider whether or not he is using his real name and how that might affect things.

“I’ve been with this company almost four years. That’s longer than anyone in the room except the CEO. I’ve been in Elmore County, Owyhee County, Payette County. I’ve talked to thousands of people. Probably walked at least a hundred miles. Been to more meetings than I can count. Dealt with the news media, done a gazillion other things. The CEO has put a lot of his own fortune into this company trying to get it going. I got to tell you, if people say that we’re trying to pull some sort of a ruse or that we’re trying to scam people I really think there ought to be a way to do it that’s easier and faster and costs less money and is a lot less stressful, if you’re going to do this kind of thing. I think our persistence over the past four years has shown that we mean what we say.

“There’s a saying by a fellow called Confucius, the man who says something cannot be done should not block the path of the man trying to do it. And that’s kind of what I see here this evening in some of these people. If we don’t get the water, we won’t build it. If we don’t get the power lines, we won’t build it. If we don’t get the financing, we won’t build it. If we don’t get 1,001 other things that we need to do this, then we won’t build it. And these people are hoping and praying that we fail on as many of those things as possible. We are here to ask you for a fair chance and a fair shot at this and we’ll have to fight our battles as they come.

“But, I think, that’s the only thing that I want to leave you with, that we’re just looking for a fair shot and a fair chance at this and that’s all I have to say.”

Question from a planning and zoning commissioner: “I’ve got a question for you. In the testimony tonight, people were upset that you won’t name the vendor of the reactor generator. It seems pretty obvious to me, if you said we’re going to buy a General Electric generator and it was all planned for, they’d know they got the only ones and the price would be real high on it. Is my thinking correct or why don’t you say who the vendor is for it?”

Me: “Well, that’s something you probably have to ask the CEO. There are a number of different reactor designs out there and this is an area of technology that is evolving and changing. I do have a feeling, however, that if we did announce the reactor type, our opponents would say “Oh, they’re being way too premature about this. Look, they’ve already picked out the reactor type and they think they’re going to stroll into Payette County and plop one of these down. And they haven’t done enough groundwork in order to pick their reactor type.” Well, we’re trying to do that groundwork right now. It’s kind of a — my feeling is that we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t. We’re going to get criticized either way. Just up to you to evaluate us on what you see, and hear and know.”

I’m told Payette County has rejected Joe Lucid’s testimony because he’s not using his real name. That is very gratifying, as Lucid is a particularly toxic individual who has persistently spread lies about AEHI, even harassing individual investors whose emails he harvested from public testimony. Lucid wants people to view him as a crusader, but it is clear to me his only motive is to enrich himself through stock shorting, a controversial practice to profit from a falling stock price. Worst of all, Lucid doesn’t use his real name on message boards or blogs, instead relying on his pseudonym or promising he will “soon submit a bio.” Apparently on or about Nov. 26, Yahoo! banned Lucid’s original profile of joe.lucid, so he has reconstituted as lucidlucid@ymail.com (this one). It wouldn’t surprise me if he had more.

False names are fine if you’re lurking on the Internet. In the public policy arena, however, providing testimony under a false name isn’t just cowardly. It’s also perjury.

BOISE, Idaho, Dec. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:AEHI – News) http://www.aehipower.com) today announced the company has received an overwhelming percentage of written support for an advanced nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho. The count was made prior to the company’s initial rezone hearing, which is scheduled for this evening, December 2, 2010 at 7 p.m. MST at the Payette County Courthouse. The deadline for written testimony was November 26th. The letters show written support level of approximately 80% in favor of the proposed rezone of AEHI’s proposed nuclear site. Two letters came directly from mayors of nearby New Plymouth and Weiser, Idaho.

The percentage of support from these letters are very reminiscent of the previous round of hearings, which ended with County Commissioners voting unanimously in favor of a change to the county’s comprehensive plan for the site from agricultural to industrial specifically for a nuclear power plant.

The comprehensive plan change now allows for a formal rezone of the property including local approval to construct a nuclear plant on the site.

The company anticipates it will begin collecting environmental data in the first quarter 2011 in preparation for submitting a construction and operating application (COLA) to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

BOISE, Idaho, November 11, 2010 – Don Gillispie, CEO of Eagle, Idaho-based Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc (OTCQB:AEHI) (http://www.aehipower.com) has been invited to speak as an industry expert at the Platts 7th annual Nuclear Energy conference in Bethesda, MD, February 16-18, 2011.

As Platts describes it, the “Nuclear Energy conference is the leading forum for a strategic view of nuclear energy in North America, featuring the major players and experienced voices in the nuclear industry.” (http://www.platts.com/ConferenceDetail/2011/pc109/index) This year’s conference will cover the rapid growth of nuclear energy around the world, and explore how the United States can catch up. Sessions will delve into such details as reactor designs and financing schemes that can speed progress in the industry.

In his February 17 panel, Gillispie will talk about the cost advantages of nuclear power compared to other forms of energy and explain how his company, AEHI, is working toward building a large dual-reactor nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho. “My message will be that nuclear power is a clear winner compared to solar, wind, and other thermal sources, making it an attractive to both large power users and investors.  It is also important to let the industry know how AEHI is getting this plant locally approved and funded, so that other companies can begin following the unique model to help expand nuclear plants in the U.S. again,” says Gillispie, a 45-year veteran of the industry.

Gillispie will also describe how nuclear power can solve a growing world crisis-scarcity of clean water-with nuclear-powered desalination plants. AEHI’s Green World Water(TM) (www.greenworld-h2o.com) subsidiary is already marketing such systems, produced by China National Nuclear Corporation, through a new office in West Africa and other interested countries.

“I hope that this conference will show that the U.S. is once again on the path to a cleaner, safer, nuclear-powered future,” Gillispie says.

BOISE, Idaho, Nov 9, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (otcqb:AEHI) (www.aehipower.com) announced today that the first final local approval hearing for the Payette, Idaho nuclear power plant site has been scheduled. Payette County Planning and Zoning Commissioners set December 2, 2010 at 7 p.m. as the beginning of public testimony before they can rezone the proposed site from agricultural to heavy industrial.

Planning and Zoning Commissioners approved the initial rezone phase in favor of AEHI by a broad majority. During that stage they indicated that should they approve the final rezone the site must only be used for a nuclear power plant.

AEHI filed its rezone application in late June, which has since been thoroughly reviewed by County officials and an independent engineering firm.

Previous hearings have proven nearly 80 percent support for AEHI’s plan, which is expected to increase county employment levels by up to 5,000 jobs during the construction phase alone.

AEHI recently announced it acquired a funding facility commitment worth up to $150 million from Roswell Capital Partners, which is designed to pay for the land, water rights and application fee with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which is required prior to plant construction.

BOISE, Idaho, Oct. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI), a developer and marketer of innovative clean energy sources based in Eagle, Idaho, today announced a funding facility, Securities Purchase Agreement, with Source Capital Group, Inc. for the committed purchase of up to 170 million shares of common stock which is approximately $120 million today to cover payments for land, water rights, engineering work and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) application fees to obtain a combined construction and operating license (COL) for building and operating a nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho.

“Under the terms of the agreement we can draw upon the funding facility as needed for up to three years, which will allow us to effectively deploy capital following local approval in Idaho while minimizing dilution to shareholders. This facility is very timely as we expect the local approval process to be finished within the next few months,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.

The proposed plant has received overwhelming approval at previous hearings in Payette County, Idaho and has been given endorsements from every mayor in the county as well as the Payette and Fruitland Chambers of Commerce.

“We hope our success in Payette will become a model for other companies to seek out and build new nuclear power plants on greenfield sites. As a long-time executive in the nuclear industry, it has become clear that nuclear is needed. It is the only method for producing baseload power that is both inexpensive and clean. In the past, only massive utilities had the resources and wherewithal to undertake such a project. However, as an independent company with committed site funding, we are defining a new paradigm whereby nuclear plants can be deployed in a cost effective way, without passing on the capital costs to rate payers,” said Gillispie.

Source Capital’s obligations to purchase shares are subject to AEHI obtaining a registration statement for the shares of common stock.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor will there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction.
