Heila Technologies is an MIT-born startup dedicated to simplifying the integration and operation of individual Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and microgrids.

The revolutionary technology that powers the Heila Platform is the brainchild of the company’s microgrid engineer, Jorge Elizondo. CEO Francisco Morocz and company then grew Heila from an internship into a business in less than a year.

The technical concept that underlies the Heila Platform was developed in 2015 when Jorge was serving as a graduate intern at Stone Edge Farm, a vineyard in Sonoma California. As part of the vineyard’s efforts to implement a fully self-sufficient and “islandable” microgrid, Jorge sought proposals from several of the world’s leading power technology companies. None were able to deliver on Jorge’s vision for an organic, self-learning system.
