Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received an order for 1,000 of its CEO700 remote disconnect units from Avista Corp. of Spokane, Washington. This is the third order that Nighthawk has received from Avista and represents the largest single order for CEO700’s in the company’s history. Avista, a NYSE-listed utility, generates annual revenue in excess of $1.3 billion providing electric and natural gas service to approximately 633,000 customers within a service territory covering over 30,000 square miles. Nighthawk expects to ship the entire order by September 30, 2008.
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 expensive truck rolls and field personnel.
