AEHI's Nuclear Plant Rezone Results Expected June 15th; Back-Up Plans Ready

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AEHI): Idaho's Elmore County Commission is scheduled to vote June 15th on AEHI's rezone request for the state's first commercial nuclear plant and the first in the western US in more than 25 years.

"While the company is optimistic about the results due to strong public support and that the rezone request can clearly be approved specifically for one purpose as allowed by state law," CEO Don Gillispie says that, "the company has a responsibility to its investors and cannot leave this matter to local politics alone. If denied, we believe that we have a strong legal case for appeal and the option to place the rezone on the county ballot this fall as well. Unfortunately, today most industrial site rezone requests must be contested to gain approval. The company has alternate sites in Utah and Colorado."

In developing the rezone application, the company concluded Elmore County needs low cost electricity to sustain agriculture, attract new business, create stable jobs; and that rezoning AEHI's land would serve the best interests of Elmore County, Idaho and the western US.
