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

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.

Nationally Significant as First Proposed U.S. Green Field Site in 33 Years

BOISE, Idaho – December 10, 2010: Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI; http://www.aehipower.com) today announced it has received recommended rezone approval on a site to build a nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho.  The decision by Payette County Planning and Zoning Commissioners is nationally significant as being the first decision of its kind regarding a green field nuclear site in 33 years.
A green field site is one that has not been previously developed or approved for a nuclear power plant.
“The Planning and Zoning Commission followed through on a monumental decision.  This approval allows us to take the next step, which involves potential final rezone approval with the Payette County Board of Commissioners as early as January 2011,” said Don Gillispie.
The company now 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.
During the December 9th evening hearing many commissioners pointed to the benefits that a nuclear power plant could provide the community.  Some of those benefits previously discussed by AEHI include an estimation of up to 5,000 jobs during construction and over 2,000 direct and indirect jobs during operations.  Salaries for these jobs are estimated at $60,000 and $80,000 respectively, and billions in GDP to the state of Idaho.
The company represents the only known opportunity for a direct nuclear plant investment in the U.S. today.

Great coverage in the Boise Weekly December 8, 2010

The Boise Weekly has done a terrific story on last week’s hearing in Payette County. To their credit, they actually sent a reporter, and they and the Ontario Argus Observer were the only media represented at the meeting. Please take a moment to read this story, as it is an accurate representation of what happened at the meeting.The story is pasted below and we encourage you to visit their site.

Payette: The County of “Yes”

After hearing “no” or “maybe” in Elmore and Owyhee, AEHI gets favorable reaction in Payette

by George Prentice

The meeting of the Payette County Planning and Zoning commission began promptly at 7 p.m. on Dec. 2. And for the next five and a half hours, a long night’s journey into day was filled with overwhelming testimony in favor of a nuclear reactor for Payette. The evening also included an ex-reporter sharing a the story of why he turned away from journalism, and a P & Z commissioner telling a group of environmental activists that they had worn out their welcome.

The commission traditionally meets to consider items such as dog kennel expansions or building new beauty salons. But through much of 2010, the dozen commissioners have been faced with the history-making task of deciding whether to launch a new commercial nuclear age for Idaho.

Don Gillispie, CEO of Alternate Energy Holdings Inc., has so far gotten nothing but green lights from officials in each corner of Payette County in his attempt to build a $10 billion nuclear reactor on a parcel of rural land not far from New Plymouth. Gillispie has been all-smiles at each of the Payette meetings, formal and informal. After several years of hearing “no” or “a conditional maybe” from officials in Elmore and Owyhee counties, Gillispie brought the concept to Payette where–one by one–mayors of Fruitland, New Plymouth and Payette echoed their unconditional support.

Gillispie wants to build the reactor on 5,000 acres near Big Willow and Stone Quarry roads. Good luck, if you’re trying to find it. The location is the very definition of remote–a series of rolling foothills off a rugged gravel road. The land is about 20 miles, as the crow flies, from the Snake River. So it came as no surprise that Snake River Alliance, Idaho’s oldest and most visible anti-nuke activists, would lead a charge against AEHI’s proposal.

As the evening of Dec. 2 wore on at the public hearing and a half-dozen SRA representatives took to the microphone, P & Z commissioner Farrell Rawlings ripped into the group.

“Look here,” Rawlings lectured. “Our governor is in favor of this. Every mayor in our county is in favor of this. Our chamber of commerce is in favor of this. I’m offended that there’s not one positive thing that you and your group has contributed to this discussion.”

Rawlings and his 11 colleagues on the commission sat in the jury box at the courthouse for their final deliberation on swinging the doors open to Gillispie and his plans. P & Z is considering a rezone of the parcel of the land from agricultural to industrial. If approved, county commissioners will get a chance to sign off on the deal sometime in January.

Gillispie’s next step would be the onerous task of developing a license application. He said he expected more than 120 scientists, engineers and nuclear experts to craft the request, which would be subject to review from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The entire licensing process could take five to seven years. Tack on another three to four years for construction, and Payette could see a reactor as soon as 2020.

Gillispie’s official spokesman is Dan Hamilton, a familiar face to television viewers in the Treasure Valley. He’s a former anchor for KTRV Fox 12. It’s one thing for a spokesman to pump out press releases and manage the media, but it’s something else for a spokesman to offer testimony at a public hearing. The hearing on Dec. 2 was anything but ordinary.

“When I was with Fox 12, I reported on AEHI,” Hamilton testified. He told commissioners how he initially agreed with opponents.

“But it wasn’t long before I asked [AEHI] for a job,” said Hamilton.

When BW asked Hamilton about the unusual move to testify, he remained on-message.

“I testified from my own personal perspective. As I was reporting, it got to the point where I thought something was weird,” said Hamilton. He said he felt duped by opponents of the planned reactor.

“Pretty soon, a completely different story was coming out. That’s why I support AEHI, and that’s why I work for them.”

Public testimony ran 2-1 in favor of the nuclear proposal. By the time a Thursday evening spilled into a Friday morning, the commission closed all testimony. On Thursday, Dec. 9, P & Z commissioners will give AEHI more time to rebut opponents’ testimony. But they may not need it.

When Gillispie told commissioners, “This county will have more money than you’ll know what to do with,” many of the commissioners beamed.

Practically everyone who survived the marathon predicted that commissioners won’t take much more time to give Gillispie another green light.

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.

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.
