AEHI Supporters Pack Rezone Hearing for Idaho Nuclear Plant

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AEHI): Hundreds of nuclear plant supporters overflowed the commission hearing room to support jobs, clean low-cost energy, agriculture and economic growth April 22 in Elmore County, Idaho. Supporters outnumbered opponents almost 6 to 1. Testimony in support was strong and diverse, including former local planning and zoning commissioners. Farmers, large landowners, the local farm bureau, businessmen and citizens all enthusiastically told the commission that Elmore County needs low cost electricity, stable jobs and that rezoning AEHI's land would serve the best interests of Elmore County and Idaho. (Idaho is essentially out of electricity.) AEHI submitted 1,600 Idaho signatures in support of the rezone, half of them from Elmore County residents compared to less than 100 for the opponents.

AEHI is proposing an advanced nuclear reactor in Mexico to desalinate sea water into potable water for the southwestern US. The company has an MOU for land-water for an advanced nuclear reactor site plus joint venture on solar at the Colorado Energy Park near Pueblo, CO. Also, the company is in early discussions regarding supplying a reactor to help remove oil from Tar Sands in Alberta, Canada. Another AEHI holding is Energy Neutral which uses technology and renewables to virtually eliminate energy bills for homes, businesses and farms, and is beginning to do business in Arizona, Colorado and Idaho.

The company has arrangements in several Asian countries, including China and Korea to obtain funding and strategic partners for its projects.
