The Heila Platform makes it easy to connect solar arrays, batteries and other distributed energy resources to grow self-managing microgrids
The end of grid gridlock
The U.S. electricity system is struggling to adapt to the physical and political stresses of climate change and demands for greater efficiency, resiliency and community independence and control. The Heila Platform makes it possible for communities to literally grow lower cost, lower carbon microgrid solutions from the ground up.

The Heila platform turns every node in a distributed energy system – every battery, solar array, inverter, fuel cell, whatever – into an independent intelligent agent that can socialize, hypothesize and self-organize.
This is how dirty centralized power will be displaced.
Proven and Ready to Scale
At 5am on October 12, 2017, in a situation that has become frighteningly common, the engineer responsible for power at Stone Edge Farm, a vineyard in Sonoma, California, got a call from an employee telling him “everything was burning.”
In seconds, he knew that power was out. But, just minutes later, at the flick of a software switch, the engineer and an intern “islanded” the winery from the grid. And it ran independently until the central utility restored power days later.
This was the first real-world test of the Heila platform.
Since, Stone Edge has become a proving ground not only for Heila, but for a wide range of DER manufacturers and service providers.
