Withdraws application in Elmore County

BOISE, IDAHO – August 10, 2010 – Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AEHI),a developer and marketer of innovative clean energy sources based in Eagle, Idaho today announced its plans to move forward exclusively on a proposed nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho and, in turn, has withdrawn its zoning application in Elmore County, Idaho.

The company recently selected a new Idaho backup site adjacent to the current site in Payette County to replace the Elmore site. The new backup site is much larger, with superior water rights and transmission rights-of-way when compared with the Elmore site.

“Our plans to permit and ultimately construct a nuclear reactor in Payette have progressed very smoothly, and we have been very pleased with both the pace of local approvals and the level of local support for the project.  In less than a year, Payette County Commissioners approved initial rezoning measures and they are already moving forward on the final application process. Recent hearings have shown support among residents often surpassing 80 percent.  Based on that level of support and pace of local approvals, we decided to focus our time and resources exclusively within Payette County.  We are encouraged by the prospects for final local approval this year or early 2011,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.

According to a recent study, the proposed plant is expected to create around 5,000 jobs through the construction phase and more than 1,000 jobs during operations. Pay levels for those jobs will average $60,000 and $80,000, respectively.

Revenue for the county and state during the construction phase alone is projected to increase Idaho’s GDP by some $5.3 billion inclusive of $4.8 billion that would flow directly through Payette County.

AEHI Secures Superior Backup Site to Elmore County

BOISE, Idaho, Jul 28, 2010 — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI) (www.aehipower.com), an independent developer of large-scale nuclear and green energy projects, including nuclear power plants and nuclear desalination reactors, today announced a purchase agreement on a new backup site for a proposed nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho.

AEHI CEO Don Gillispie stated, “Our excellent primary site of 5,000 acres is also in Payette County and because of the overwhelming support AEHI has already received in that part of Idaho, we felt it was fitting to look at an additional site in the same area.”

The new backup site involves 6,000 acres adjacent to the primary site and includes a number of benefits that complement both sites such as water rights, transmission right-of-ways, the ability for future expansion. And like the primary site, it also passes preliminary standards required to build a nuclear power plant.

“While we still have an application on what is now a tertiary site in Elmore County, Idaho, about 100 miles southeast from Payette, the Elmore County Commissioners have yet to make a decision on our application after well over a year and continue to show uncertainty in their deliberations. As an investor-owned company, it is vital to focus our attention and resources on better sites where residents and local governments continue to show definitive interest,” Gillispie stated.

The proposed plant has met with large-scale support at all local hearings; better than 80 percent support has been witnessed at every hearing in Payette County.

“This large plant will offer jobs, financial security and opportunity that many people in the community are looking for. It’s the same message we continually hear every time we attend one of the hearings. It’s also the reason county commissioners unanimously approved the next-to-last step in the rezone process on the basis that only a nuclear power plant could locate on the property,” said Gillispie.

According to a recent study, the proposed plant is expected to create around 5,000 jobs through the construction phase and more than 1,000 jobs during operations. Pay levels for those jobs will average $60,000 and $80,000, respectively.

The projected revenue for the county and state is staggering. During construction alone, the project should increase Idaho’s GDP by $5.3 billion, while $4.8 billion will flow directly through Payette County.

BOISE, IDAHO – June 9, 2010 – Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: AEHI) announced today that it has posted its investor presentation slides and synchronized audio to the Investor Roadshow website (www.InvestorRoadshow.com), an online portal for connecting investors with executives of publicly traded companies. Mr. Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO, provided a target business timeline and updates on:

• The local permitting process for the Company’s proposed primary and backup nuclear reactor sites in Payette and Elmore counties in Idaho;
• AEHI’s Green World Water™ project and exclusive partnership with China National Nuclear Corporation to produce and market nuclear desalinization reactors
• The Company’s Energy Neutral™ home, which produces more energy than it consumesDon Gillispie, AEHI CEO, commented, “We are the only independent nuclear power plant developer in the U.S. seeking to build in non-nuclear states. Today’s safe nuclear energy design provides unchallenged consistency along with some of the lowest production costs and highest capacity to support the nation’s base load requirements while eliminating green house gas emissions. Support for nuclear is growing rapidly, particularly as most state regulators now prefer nuclear even to natural gas, and approximately 84% of Americans living close to nuclear power plants now support this environmentally friendly and safe option that also contributes jobs to the local community. The fact that we have now received unanimous approval from Payette County’s Board of Commissioners for its comprehensive county plan change, as well as the planning and zoning approval at our backup site in Elmore County, demonstrates we have made dramatic operational progress and are well on our way to NRC review, followed by the construction phase at one or both of these sites. At each stage of the permitting and regulatory approval process, the commercial value of these sites increases substantially driving significant value creation for our shareholders.”

“At the same time we are moving forward our proposed $10 billion nuclear project, we are also actively pursuing multiple near-term revenue opportunities. Among these, we recently announced an official partnership with China National Nuclear Corporation to produce and market nuclear desalinization reactors. Our Green World Water reactor design is state-of-the-art, and offers the cleanest, most efficient, and most cost-effective solution for converting salt water to drinking water. Several countries have already expressed interest in the desalinization reactor and we expect to have several of these projects underway within a year.”

“Lastly, we have received significant interest from homebuyers and homebuilders in our new Energy Neutral home. This home produces more energy than it consumes, and provides the excess energy back to the grid, generating net cash flow from the public utility on a monthly basis that can be used to offset total home ownership costs. Given the current stage of permitting for our nuclear reactor sites, coupled with our near-term revenue opportunities, we are extremely encouraged by the outlook for our business.”

BOISE, Idaho, May 20, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI) today provided a business update for the first quarter of 2010. Key operational highlights include:

— Payette County, Idaho Board of Commissioners unanimously approved changes to the county’s comprehensive plan to allow development of a nuclear power plant

— Elmore County, Idaho Planning and Zoning Commissioners officially approved a change to the county’s comprehensive plan paving way for final approval of AEHI’s proposed nuclear power plant by the County Board of Commissioners — Agreement with China National Nuclear Corporation (“CNNC”) to produce and market nuclear desalinization reactors internationally

— Agreement to work with Dalian Shipbuilding and Equipment Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (“DSIC EM”) to qualify and market various large-sized manufacturing components for use in the international energy industry

— Completed construction of company’s first Energy Neutral(TM) home designed and built specifically to be energy neutral but at a total cost that is both affordable and comparable to that of traditional building techniques

— As of March 31, 2010, AEHI had approximately $3.5 million of cash and no long-term debt

“We continue to make rapid progress on our plans to permit and construct a nuclear reactor in Idaho, through our Idaho Energy Complex (IEC) subsidiary,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO. “Most recently, in May 2010, the Payette County, Idaho Board of Commissioners unanimously approved changes to the county’s comprehensive plan in order to allow development of a nuclear power plant at our site, and we expect final local approvals in 2010. Additionally, in April 2010, at our backup site in Elmore County, the Planning and Zoning Commissioners officially approved a change to the county’s comprehensive plan that paves the way for final approval of AEHI’s proposed nuclear power plant by the Board of Commissioners expected later this year. These two milestones illustrate the broad public acceptance and support for our projects.

“At the same time, we are making progress on a number of additional fronts. Most recently, we announced a major agreement earlier this week with CNNC to produce and market nuclear desalinization reactors internationally. We are already in discussion with several countries in need of clean, potable water as well as the ability to generate affordable and sustainable ‘green’ energy. Last month, we signed an agreement to work with DSIC EM to qualify and market various large-sized manufacturing components for use in the international energy industry.

“We also completed construction of the company’s first Energy Neutral home, a radical departure from traditional building techniques because it was designed and built specifically to be energy neutral yet at a total cost that is both affordable and comparable to that of traditional building. Our Energy Neutral model home is generating significant media attention as well as franchisee interest from both residential and commercial builders locally and around the nation. Our Energy Neutral business could quickly become a source of revenue and cash flow for us as we pursue our broader initiatives.

“Overall, we are extremely excited about the outlook for the business and believe the future for AEHI is brighter than ever. Although the domestic U.S. nuclear industry has been long dormant, our experience and early lead combine to create a powerful competitive advantage in this rapidly reemerging market that will enable us to exploit growth trends in coming years. Moreover, our unique positioning as a deregulated nuclear plant that can take full advantage of market pricing for energy means we have the ability to generate very attractive rates of return from this investment. The coming resurgence in the industry’s prospects is best evidenced by the additional loan guarantees and strong support for nuclear development by the current Administration in Washington. Moreover, we have a strong international foothold as evidenced by our partnerships in China and elsewhere. These strategic relationships provide further validation of our market leadership and help to establish a foundation for long-term growth,” concluded Gillispie.

AEHI optimistic about upcoming decisions in Payette & Elmore Counties April 13, 2010

PAYETTE, IDAHO: April 12, 2010, Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: AEHI) — Payette County Commissioners today delayed a decision on a comprehensive plan change until April 26th. The two weeks will give them enough time to discuss a few other potential changes that deal with bringing any kind of power producer into the county.

“This is good news for AEHI. While we would have hoped for a decision in our favor today, all the proposed improvements to the comprehensive plan involve changes that work very well for a nuclear power plant,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.

An overwhelming majority of Payette County residents have told commissioners in public hearings they want the plant, and more specifically the jobs and revenue a nuclear power plant will provide. Last year AEHI applied for a rezone of property near Hammett in Elmore County and was even permitted a series of public hearings on the application, but county commissioners never made a decision.

“They are now back to the table. While Elmore County Commissioners backtracked a little bit, they have accomplished a lot in very short amount of time. The Planning and Zoning Commission is about to move forward on a change to their comprehensive plan and once they do the county commissioners could approve it and immediately approve our rezone application since it’s already been through the public hearing process. I never thought I’d see Elmore County back in the game, but at this point they could surpass Payette County in the approval process by the end of the month,” said Gillispie.

The process has been of tremendous interest to the people of Idaho since the proposed plant is expected to increase the state’s GDP by $5 billion during construction, with $4.8 billion flowing directly through the county. Job numbers are equally impressive, as employment should jump by about 5,000 during construction and more than 1,000 during operation, with pay levels averaging $60,000 and $80,000 respectively.

Elmore County P&Z votes to change comprehensive plan
AEHI plan to build nuclear power plant continues to move forward Mountain Home, Idaho

Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (AEHI:OB) – During a hearing Wednesday night, Elmore County Planning and Zoning Commissioners decided to recommend a change to the wording of the county’s comprehensive plan. The current plan requires industrial development to locate along Simco Road, which was a sticking point for a plan by Alternate Energy Holdings to build a nuclear power plant in another part of the county.

“This latest decision keeps the door open for a possible nuclear power plant in Elmore County and I believe it reflects the commissioners continued desire to keep our project in play. While AEHI’s Payette County site is currently the lead location in Idaho, we also welcome the news that Elmore County is taking such steps to increase the possibility for more economic development,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.

During the meeting a nuclear power opponent requested the commissioners change the wording of the comprehensive plan in a way that would close the door to a nuclear power plant, which the commissioners refused.

The planned changes include expanding light industrial into areas of city impact and expanding heavy industrial into areas that “will not be detrimental to neighboring and existing land uses”. Those changes will be signed April 21st, after which they will go before the Board of County Commissioners for final approval.

Nuclear power has been recognized as a vital method to increase econimic viability especially in rural communities like those proposed in Elmore and Payette counties. AEHI’s project is estimated to increase employment by more than 5,000 workers through construction, and more than 1,000 during operations. The commercial benefit during construction is even more impressive, increasing the state’s GDP by $5.8 billion, with $4.3 billion of that money filtering directly through the county.

Eagle, Idaho, January 25, 2010 – Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: AEHI.OB): Elmore County Planning and Zoning Commissioners agreed to change the county’s comprehensive plan supporting AEHI’s proposed nuclear plant.

Commissioners agreed with AEHI and said other parts of the county should be available for heavy industrial development, which will help clear the way for a nuclear power plant near Hammett, Idaho.

According to the Mountain Home News, one of the new P&Z commissioners noted this process has taken far too long, nearly 24 months, about 75 percent longer than other Idaho counties.  It’s the same reason AEHI began looking at other counties several months ago.

Since then the company cleared a similar hurdle January 14th, when Payette County P&Z Commissioners voted to change their comprehensive plan in favor of a nuclear power plant.

“The process now comes down to the question of timely site approval as our stockholders and financial institutions are anxious to break ground on the Idaho project.  We’ve seen a huge outpouring of support from people living in both areas and believe these recent decisions confirm that support,” said AEHI Chairman and CEO Don Gillispie.

Chambers of commerce are great organizations. Nuclear plants, like any large employer, rely on a vital and active business community to trade with locally and chambers have an important role to play. We are pleased to join the Payette Chamber and they were very kind to mention us in their recent newsletter (an edited version is below). In addition to the $1,000 we donated to WICAP, we gave $2500 to Operation Warm Heart this year in Elmore County, bought clothes for teen boy in need, gave cash to family whose house burned and I am sure I forgot some others.

Another wonderful thing happended today…when I got back to the office, I had an email from Don Gillispie (of AEHI) who had not received my emails about the turkey bucks drive (since he wasn’t a member yet) but had had yesterdays results of the drive email forwarded to him (by Denny Croner) to let him know about it…and about the chambers involvement in it. Don Gillispie wanted to know how he could donate $1000.00 for the cause! I had to tell him that the drive was over, but I did talk with Alan Deardorff (of WICAP) who said that they are in need of cash now (the food needs, toys needs and clothing needs had been met) for families who are in emminent danger of having their heat, lights and water turned off. So Mr. Gillespie has made his donation directly to WICAP in the form of cash to help meet those needs also. I swear (tears up) we live in a wonderful world…and angels DO walk among us!!

Thank you to everyone who has helped us this Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season to bring cheer, warmth and sustainance to those less fortunate than ourselves…thank you to those who haven’t helped but who spent a quiet moment wishing they could have (I am personally among this group)…and may God bless those who are receiving your generous donations today that they might have a truly blessed Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS ….from me to you….and from your Chamber to your businesses

In somewhat of a reversal from last year’s decision, the Elmore County Planning and Zoning Commission Wednesday voted to move forward with amending its comprehensive plan so developers could rezone land for a proposed nuclear plant. The company proposing to develop the plant welcomed the vote – even as Payette County holds a meeting tonight to consider a separate proposal for a nuclear plant.

 

In April 2008, Alternate Energy Holdings Inc. applied to rezone about 1,280 acres in Elmore County to industrial use for a proposed nuclear reactor. In July, the Elmore County Commission found the county’s comprehensive plan was unclear, as it restricted industrial development to a remote area without services, yet sought to promote economic development. The commission directed its Planning and Zoning Commission to consider amending the Elmore County Comprehensive plan to allow the proposed nuclear plant rezone.

 

“It has been clear to us that Elmore County’s comprehensive plan, while well-intentioned, has appeared to keep industrial development to one zone, thus denying other areas of the county the benefits of industrial development,” said AEHI CEO Don Gillispie. “We welcome Wednesday’s vote as a favorable sign that Elmore County is committed to making sure that its comprehensive plan is used to facilitate growth, not obstruct it.”

 

Nevertheless, Gillispie said he is looking forward to tonight’s public hearing before the Payette County Planning and Zoning Commission. In October, AEHI submitted an application to amend the Payette comprehensive plan and rezone some 5,100 acres for a nuclear plant. The Payette submittal came a year and a half after the Elmore submittal when AEHI felt Elmore County wasn’t processing its application in a timely manner.

 

If this step in Payette is successful, the company will have one more hearing for the rezone of the property currently anticipated before year’s end. Rezone approval will then allow pre-COLA (Nuclear Regulatory Commission application) preparations to begin in the first quarter of 2010.

 

“While we welcome the Elmore County P and Z’s acknowledgement that their plan needs to be reconciled, we are moving forward with our proposal in Payette County as well and look forward to tonight’s hearing before the Payette County Planning and Zoning Commission,” Gillispie said. “We are confident there is at least one jurisdiction in Idaho that is open to having a clean, well-paying, stable industry anchoring their economy.”
