OTCQX - ANRGF

CALGARY, May 17 /CNW/ - (TSX: NRG; OTCQX: ANRGF) Alter NRG Corp. ("Alter NRG" or the "Company") announces that it has closed on the sale of the land and building near Bruderheim for $2.1 million.  The expected sale was previously announced in October 2010 for $2.3 million but finalized at $2.1 million due to some building damage during the closing period.  This represents a gain on sale of approximately $250,000.

Mark Montemurro, CEO of Alter NRG discusses that "Bruderheim was a legacy project that Alter NRG discontinued in late 2008 as the Company began to focus on technology sales.  I am pleased to see this asset sale close which strengthens our balance sheet and also eliminates approximately $300,000 per annum of operating costs on the site."
