Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received an order for CEO700 whole-house disconnect units from Salem Electric Cooperative of Salem, Oregon. This order was placed by Salem Electric after successfully testing a Nighthawk unit in 2006. Salem Electric serves members in western Salem and Keizer, Oregon. General Pacific, Inc., a distributor of electrical apparatus and supplies in the Northwest United States, assisted with the sale.
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.
