BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Payette Chamber of Commerce today announced its official endorsement of Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB:AEHI) and the company's plan to build a nuclear power plant in Payette County, Idaho.
Over the past year the Chamber and its members have become keenly aware of AEHI and of how the company's endeavors will enhance and improve business and job opportunities in Payette County.
"Nuclear power has proven itself as one of the safest, cleanest and most reliable sources of energy in the world. It is also a tremendous source for jobs, something we desperately need in Payette County. Our unemployment rate currently surpasses the state average and AEHI's proposal would bring thousands of new jobs into our community – high paying positions that will increase employment opportunities even outside the power plant," said Shelley Creson, Executive Director of the Payette Chamber of Commerce.
"A business like AEHI is exactly what we need in Payette and by extension Payette County. It is the same reason I put my support behind this company. In my opinion, AEHI's leadership is steeped in nuclear power, with people who spent their entire careers in the nuclear industry. They have built and maintained power plants around the nation and I look forward to them bringing that same success to our community. As they succeed, so will our county and the people who live in it," said Jeff Williams, Chamber member and Mayor of Payette.
The Chamber and its members are confident in AEHI's success and look forward to the local approval process, which the Chamber believes will result in a positive result for the company, its shareholders and the people who live in Payette County.
AEHI joined the Payette Chamber of Commerce in early 2010 and has remained an active member since that time.
