Nighthawk Systems Receives Second, Larger Order From Nebraska Public Power District, Tripling Original March Order.

SAN ANTONIO -- Nighthawk Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: NIHK), a leading provider of intelligent wireless power control products, today announced that Nebraska Public Power District placed a second order for Nighthawk's proprietary CEO-700 whole house disconnect units during March as part of its ongoing program to reduce operating costs. This second order effectively tripled the number of units originally ordered in March. Nighthawk announced a first order from Nebraska Public Power on March 8, 2005. Nebraska Public Power District is Nebraska's largest electric utility, with a chartered territory including all or parts of 91 of Nebraska's 93 counties.

A recent Wall Street Journal article highlighted the high number of disconnects performed by electric utilities, and the operating costs associated with delinquent accounts. The article stated that 105,000 customers are disconnected each month in Texas alone. The CEO-700 gives electric utilities the ability to remotely disconnect and reconnect power to electric meters, saving them significant time and money over the traditional manual disconnect/reconnect methods that require field personnel to be dispatched multiple times to customers' premises. Nighthawk has learned that a utility can recoup its investment in the CEO-700 by utilizing the unit only three times.

H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk's CEO, stated, "We are extremely pleased with the direction of the Company, and the rate at which utilities are adopting the use of our product. While Nebraska Public Power had indicated a larger need for our product, we were pleasantly surprised with how quickly they tripled the size of their original order from earlier in the month. Recent meetings with utilities have made it clear that they can substantially lower their operating costs utilizing the CEO-700, so we look for growing sales of the product to both new and existing customers."
