Alternate Energy Holdings, which found little to no interest from Elmore or Owyhee counties in its attempt to build a nuclear power plant, is finding plenty of support for doing the same in Payette County.
The Payette Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Sept .2, announced its official endorsement of AEHI's plan to build a nuclear facility in their back yard. Payette County commissioners are still mulling over a proposal to rezone a parcel of land from agricultural to industrial, which could in turn open the gateway for AEHI's nuke dream.
"Nuclear power has proven itself as one of the safest, cleanest and most reliable sources of energy in the world," promotes the Payette chamber. "AEHI's proposal would bring thousands of new jobs into our community."
The Mayor of Payette wants a drink of AEHI water too. "I look forward to them bringing that success to our community."
