VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 15, 2005) - Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. (NGP) (TSX VENTURE:NGP)(OTCBB:NGLPF), today announced that it will proceed with a brokered private placement for up to 11,111,111 units at a price of Cdn. $0.90 per unit to raise gross proceeds of up to Cdn. $10,000,000 (the "Offering").

Each unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one share purchase warrant (a "Unit"). Each whole share purchase warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of 24 months at a price of $1.40 per warrant share. Subject to an exercise acceleration provision such that if any time after the closing of the Offering, the closing price per NGP share on a Canadian Stock Exchange is $2.00 or higher, for twenty consecutive business days, then NGP will give the investors notice that the warrants must be exercised or they will expire within 30 days.

NGP has appointed Dundee Securities Corporation ("Dundee") to act as its exclusive agent for the Offering. Dundee will receive a 7% commission and will be granted an option (the "Compensation Option") to acquire that number of Units equal to 8% of the number of Units issued under the Offering. The Compensation Option shall be exercisable at the offering price of the Units for a period of 24 months following closing of the Offering. Dundee shall also have the right of first refusal to lead and manage all equity offerings by NGP and to act as its financial advisor in the event of a sale, merger, amalgamation, arrangement, reorganization or other similar transaction for a period of 24 months following closing of the Offering.

If all of the Units are sold the net proceeds to be realized by NGP from the private placement will be Cdn. $9,225,000 which shall be used to fund further development at the Blue Mountain, Black Warrior, Pumpernickel, Crump Geyser geothermal projects and for general working capital. The securities to be issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period, and the Offering is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Nevada Geothermal Power Inc. is a renewable energy company developing geothermal projects in the United States to provide electrical energy that is clean, efficient and sustainable. NGP is committed to the geothermal industry and currently owns a 100% leasehold interest in four properties: Blue Mountain, Pumpernickel, Black Warrior, all of which are ideally situated in Nevada and Crump Geyser in Oregon.
