Nighthawk, a wireless smart grid solutions provider, has secured an initial order from Saipan-based Commonwealth Utilities Corp. (CUC) to deliver electric meters with Nighthawk communications technology.

With two-way communications technology, Nighthawk says its meters will enable CUC to employ a pre-pay metering solution to improve collections and cashflow. The outage detection feature will help improve service to customers by providing better information on outage locations and restoration. In addition, voltage monitoring is anticipated to help provide valuable information, especially in some of the more remote locations.

"We are delighted to partner with the Commonwealth Utilities Corp. and provide Nighthawk’s unique solutions to this community,” says Charles Kitowski, CEO of Nighthawk. “We look forward to better enabling their customers and helping the CUC to manage their costs, improve their customer service and reduce operational costs overall.”
