BOISE, Idaho, June 21, 2011 -

First Publicly-Traded Independent
Power Producer to Receive Local Site Approval in United States and
First Nuclear Site
Approval Post Japanese Tsunami

Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTC:AEHI; href="">
announced that it received final local rezone approval for
building a nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho.


On June 20th, Payette County Commissioners unanimously approved
the request, which is a landmark achievement for the company and
the international nuclear renaissance after the Japanese
tsunami-caused event.  AEHI is now the first publicly-traded
independent-power producer to receive local nuclear site approval
in the United States.  AEHI intends to enter the federal
approval process with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC)
by applying for a combined construction and operating license for
an advanced nuclear power plant.

“I am grateful to our stockholders and our supporters for
remaining with us during this challenging time.   We have
proved to the world that this process can be accomplished despite
the best efforts of anti-nuclear activists.  I now look
forward to the federal process, as key government officials in the
United States
, like President Barack Obama have put their support
behind nuclear power,” said Don Gillispie, AEHI CEO.
