Boise, Idaho, January 13, 2010: Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc.(OTC:BB, AEHI.OB) — A lot of writers have drawn the conclusion that without a deal in Korea, there is no potential for a proposed nuclear power plant in Payette.  That couldn’t be further from the truth.  AEHI wants the reactor because of its superior level of quality, price and sales commissions on other US sales.  But there are other reactors on the market, so the plant will go forward with or without a Korean-made reactor.

A lot has been written over the past few days about AEHI CEO Don Gillispie and a recent trip to Korea.  The trip, which was planned months in advance, was aimed at finalizing a year old negotiations to import Korean-made nuclear reactors to the United States.  That same reactor, called an APR 1400 would also be the key ingredient to a proposed plant in Payette County, Idaho.

Although no decisions were ever made, or contracts signed, Gillispie still believes it was a very positive trip.  Not only did AEHI receive confirmation of a potential deal in the future from KEPCO (Korean Electric Power Company), Gillispie also received similar confirmation directly from the Korean Prime Minister, and from a past Korean secretary of energy who spoke to the President of Korea during the trip.

News of Gillispie’s trip was so noteworthy, in fact, that TV and print journalists from two of the largest Korean media outlets took time to interview Gillispie on his trip. One newspaper, which did not, was the Korean Times, which seems to be the only article anyone wants to quote and it only used unnamed KEPCO sources.

In any case, the Korean reactor deal has no effect on the future of its US reactor projects and simply much ado about nothing by our opponents.

Boise, Idaho, January 9,
2010: Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (AEHI:OB)

CEO Don Gillispie remains in negotiations with Korean officials over the importing of Korean-made nuclear reactors into the U.S. market.

While there, Gillispie met with Korean Prime Minister Un-Chan Chung. During that meeting Chung expressed his own interest in following through on a potential agreement with Alternate Energy Holdings as soon as possible.
Any agreement would include commissions for other North American reactor sales for AEHI.

I am currently travelling in Colorado but I wanted to update followers on some initiatives we have going. Alternate Energy Holdings Inc. is nearing a deal to bring the first Korean advanced reactor to the US for the Idaho nuclear project. This is an excellent design based on Combustion Engineering and Westinghouse designs first developed in the US. Also, the Koreans are some of best reactor operators in the world. This reactor will allow AEHI to produce the lowest cost power of any proposed US power plant including combined cycle gas, wind, solar, geothermal and clean coal. It will also stimulate investment money from Korea into our Idaho nuclear project.  The MOU will be publicly announced in the near future.
