Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received a second order for CEO700 whole-house disconnect units from the town of Smyrna, Delaware. Nighthawk announced in May 2007 that Smyrna had placed the largest initial order for CEO700’s in company history, and this second order matches the original order of 300 units. Both sales were made with the assistance of Rumsey Electric, an electrical wholesaler.
Smyrna is using a pre-production version of Nighthawk’s Utility WebConnect software platform to manage and control its devices. Nighthawk expects to begin marketing and selling Utility WebConnect during the fourth quarter of 2007.
The CEO700 gives electric utilities the ability to remotely connect and disconnect power to residential electric meters on a moment’s notice, improving customer service response times and saving the utilities significant time and money compared to the traditional manual method that requires truck rolls and field personnel. Smyrna is using the CEO700 to decrease the time and expense associated with frequent connects and disconnects at transient housing locations such as apartments.
