Center For Irrigation Technology
Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT)
The Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) supports developing and deploying technologies that will bring the world the most innovative products and resource management tools. The Center is built on a foundation of innovation and technology transfer focused on testing, applied research, and entrepreneurship. Since 1980, CIT staff has worked with the public and private sectors to advance irrigation, water, and energy technologies and management practices. CIT is a division of the California Water Institute.
One of the Center's most active community resources is its Advanced Pumping Efficiency Program (APEP) - an educational and incentive program intended to improve overall pumping efficiency and encourage energy conservation in California. Current funding is through Public Purpose Programs Funds under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and it was formerly funded by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E).
