MARK YOUR CALENDARS: 8th Annual AgTechDay is Friday, October 25, 2024

Again this year, the event will showcase innovative technologies in field demonstrations, educational presentations, and a trade show.

The Advanced Pumping Efficiency Program (APEP) is CIT’s longest-running program. Funded by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), its purpose is to educate and promote electric savings through better and more efficient energy and water use. The goals are to get highly efficient hardware in the field (including subsidized pump testing) and to ensure this hardware is managed correctly through extensive in-person, live demonstration, virtual, and on-demand educational events.
