Alternate Energy Corp. Selects Genesys Engineering

Genesys to Provide Exclusive Project Design, Engineering and Construction Management of AEC's Bulk Hydrogen Process Plants

BURLINGTON, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- Alternate Energy Corporation (OTCBB: ARGY), the developer of innovative technology for the production of hydrogen and select commodity chemical products, today announced an agreement with Genesys Engineering, P.C. to design and construct bulk hydrogen production plants for AEC customers on an exclusive basis.

AEC and Genesys leadership have been in general discussions over time, and with rising interest being expressed by certain of AEC's potential customers in its bulk hydrogen production process, it has become apparent that AEC needed to put together a long term relationship with a design, engineering and construction firm that has experience and a long term interest in the energy industry.

Blaine Froats, CEO of AEC, said, "With the recent interest in a bulk hydrogen production plant being expressed by a potential customer in Brazil, we opened new discussions with Bob Braun and his associate, Ron Mineo, both Principals of Genesys Engineering, and to our great pleasure, Genesys has agreed to become our exclusive engineering and construction firm for bulk hydrogen plants that may be contracted around the world, with the first one likely to be in Brazil."

Mr. Froats commented further, "Hydrogen production plants that we sell to companies that have a need for bulk hydrogen are expected to significantly reduce our customers' hydrogen cost when compared to other sources, such as 'trucked-in' hydrogen. In addition to becoming a low-cost supplier of high-quality hydrogen, AEC's plants would also produce certain commodity chemical products for sale into world markets."

Mr. Robert J. Braun, P.E., a Principal of Genesys Engineering, P.C., stated, "We have been tracking developments at AEC, and we are certainly pleased that the Company has chosen Genesys Engineering to be its partners in the design, engineering and construction of their hydrogen plants. It is becoming increasingly clear that hydrogen will become a major alternative fuel in coming years, and many already existing applications in the food processing industry are well established. As I have been known to say -- 'timing is everything' -- and we believe that now is the time for our company to join with AEC in the hydrogen and alternative energy business."
