The major message in long-term conservation is that we don't live in an area that can support the kind of landscapes that we have. We are talking about lifestyle changes. We're not saying it all has to be rocks and cactus, but we have to be making smarter, more efficient choices.

Cyber-Rain, the innovative smart sprinkler system designed to help consumers save money and protect the environment has already helped California conserve over nine million gallons of water. The announcement was made by Reza Pourzia, CTO and founder of Cyber-Rain, who will be exhibiting his product at the Green Tech Expo as part of the Border Governors Conference August 14-15, 2008 in Universal City, CA.

"While California has historically been a place of great invention, it now also leads the US in environmental policy," states Pourzia. "So it comes as no surprise that the state should be leaders in green technology as well. We feel privileged to have been invited to exhibit at the Green Tech Expo and look forward to delivering innovative technology that helps people conserve water, while saving money and helping to sustain the environment"

This year's Green Tech Expo was commissioned by California's governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chairman of the 26th Annual Border Governors Conference who wanted to showcase the state's creativity and innovation in this arena.

California, the most populous state in the U.S., is also one of the richest and most diverse parts of the world and hosts some of the most endangered ecological communities. And although California contains the 2nd most forestland in the country, 25% of the State's varied geographical surface is covered by desert. The hot, semi-arid climate is constantly thrusting Californians into drought, which has water officials panicked as their water supplies begin to dry up.

The average household consumes 156,000 gallons of water a year, 60% of that, or 93,600 gallons, are used for landscape watering. With greater pressure from government agencies to conserve water, and water costs on the rise, technology that helps consumers save more of this precious resource is also on the rise.

In a North County Times article, dated June 17, 2007, Ken Weinberg, water resources manager for the San Diego Water Authority commented, "The major message in long-term conservation is that we don't live in an area that can support the kind of landscapes that we have. We are talking about lifestyle changes. We're not saying it all has to be rocks and cactus, but we have to be making smarter, more efficient choices."

Enter Cyber-Rain. The Cyber-Rain XCI easily replaces a homeowner's current sprinkler controller, giving users a convenient, simple way to save up to 70% off their monthly water bill while preventing run-off which can pollute waterways and streams. The smart controller always knows how much water to dispense since it downloads vital data such as precipitation, temperature and humidity from the Internet daily to adjust how much water to utilize that day.

With rebates of $60 to $700 offered in most states and water districts across the nation, getting a Cyber-Rain XCI is no longer a question of cost, but rather a question of how much a consumer is interested in saving.
