BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - December 6, 2007) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AEHI), a holding company for the Idaho Energy Complex Corporation, announced its December 5, 2007 receipt of a $150 million commitment letter from Silverleaf Capital Partners, LLC, Salt Lake, Utah. The letter is in reference to AEHI's Reactor Land Development LLC private placement memorandum for the Idaho Energy Complex's Unit 1 reactor, and closing is expected by year's end. AEHI will allocate these funds for the purchase of the nuclear plant site, large forgings, and the engineering and environmental work necessary to obtain Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approval for the construction and operation of the new nuclear plant.

About Idaho Energy Complex Corporation (

The Idaho Energy Complex, a holding of AEHI, is a proposed $4.5 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.
