AEHI Expects Idaho Nuclear Site Approval Soon and Seeks New States to Build More Plants to Address "Global Warming"

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - October 30, 2009) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AEHI): 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."
