Alternate Energy Holdings' Proposed Nuclear Plant Would Avoid 11.3 Million Tons of Carbon

LYNCHBURG, VA--(Marketwire - September 26, 2007) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc (PINKSHEETS: AEHI) announced that its proposed Idaho nuclear/bio-fuel generation facility, the Idaho Energy Complex (IEC), would avoid significant amounts of dangerous emissions once operational. To generate the same amount of electricity as the IEC (a 1600 megawatt nuclear plant), a coal and various consulting plant would spew 11.3 million metric tons of carbon, 8,416 metric tons of nitrogen oxide and 10,433 metric tons of sulfur dioxide annually into the atmosphere, according to recent calculations by the Nuclear Energy Institute. Carbon is blamed for contributing to rising average global temperatures; while nitrogen oxide contributes to lung irritation, ozone formation and acid rain; and sulfur dioxide contributes to acid rain. By contrast, the IEC, like all commercial nuclear plants, will be emissions-free.

About Idaho Energy Complex Corporation (

The Idaho Energy Complex, a holding of AEHI, is a proposed $3.5 billion commercial nuclear power plant/bio-fuel generation facility to be constructed on a designated site near Grand View, Idaho. The electricity provided by the nuclear plant would be sufficient to power Idaho's growing needs and allow the elimination of fossil fuels for current power production. Additionally, excess heat from the nuclear reactor would be used to produce ethanol and methane from local crops and agricultural waste.
