Nebraska Utility Orders More Nighthawk Units

Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received an additional order for CEO700 whole-house disconnect units from Nebraska Public Power District. This marks the fourth year of Nighthawk’s ongoing relationship with NPPD, which has been ordering units from Nighthawk on a regular basis since March 2005. This order is expected to be shipped during the current quarter.

The CEO700 gives electric utilities the ability to wirelessly disconnect and reconnect power to residential electric meters from a centralized location, improving customer service response times and saving the utility significant time and money over the traditional manual disconnect method that requires multiple truck rolls and field personnel.

H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk’s CEO, stated, “NPPD has become a flagship customer for Nighthawk Systems and the CEO700. They established a remote disconnect program covering wide geographical areas utilizing the CEO700 back in 2005, and that program continues to expand in 2008 based on the positive results they have experienced from the very beginning of the program. Over the past three years, we have established a core group of electric utility companies like NPPD that regularly place repeat orders. Additionally, we added a number of new customers to our revenue base in 2007, with the goal to establish ongoing programs with them as we have with NPPD that will generate increasing savings for our customers and continuing revenues for Nighthawk for years to come.”
