Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received a second order for its CEO700 meter-based whole-house disconnect units from Conway Corporation, which operates the electric, water, wastewater and cable television utility services for the city of Conway, Arkansas. Nighthawk announced in June of 2006 that Conway Corporation made its first purchase. The CEO700s are used as part of an ongoing program to wirelessly disconnect and reconnect power to electric customers, including local college students who frequently move into and out of houses and housing complexes. Nighthawk was originally introduced to Conway Corporation by the Stuart C. Irby Company of Jackson, Mississippi, one of the nation’s leading electrical wholesalers.
The CEO700 gives electric utilities the ability to remotely connect and disconnect power to residential electric meters on a moment’s notice, saving them significant time and money over the traditional manual method that typically requires multiple truck rolls and field personnel.
