Wyoming Utility Places Second Order with Nighthawk

Nighthawk Systems, Inc. has received a second order for CEO700 whole house disconnect units from Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power Company, a subsidiary of Black Hills Corporation, which services approximately 80,000 residents in more than 1200 square miles of certificated territory in southeast Wyoming. This second, larger order follows an original order of units placed in February of this year. Both sales were made with the assistance of Hotline Electrical Sales and Service, an electrical distributor covering the Rocky Mountain region of the United States.

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. For safety reasons, Cheyenne has opted to purchase units that include a homeowner reset button which requires the customer to push a reset button on the unit in order to have power restored.
