Alaska Electric Utility, Minnesota Co-op to Install Nighthawk Units

Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received an initial order for its CEO700 whole-house disconnect units from Golden Valley Electric Association of Fairbanks, Alaska. This initial order was placed after successful testing of the product in below-zero conditions in its service area, which covers 90,000 residents and approximately 42,000 service locations in the Fairbanks, Delta, Nenana, Healy and Cantwell areas.

Nighthawk Systems has also received an initial order for its whole-house disconnect units from Beltrami Electric Cooperative of Bemidji, Minnesota. Beltrami Electric Cooperative's service area spans more than 3000 square miles in north-central Minnesota. This initial order was placed after testing demo units from Nighthawk in 2006. RESCO, a leader in the sales and distribution of products for the electrical utility industry, assisted Nighthawk with the sale.

Nighthawk recently announced that sales of the CEO700, one of Nighthawk’s core products, more than doubled from 2005 to 2006, and that the trend has continued early in 2007. The CEO700 gives electric utilities the ability to wirelessly disconnect and reconnect power to residential electric meters from a centralized location, saving them significant time and money over the traditional manual disconnect method requiring multiple truck rolls and field personnel.
