Our Vision

Heila believes DERs will grow to dominate the grid and become the primary source of energy for people across the globe. As the use cases below demonstrate, the decentralized nature of the Heila EDGE® Platform allows it to address almost any application priority, from microgrid resiliency to behind the meter economic optimization to fleet management; grow renewable energy-based systems organically from the ground up; and meet current and future local and systemwide needs.

Stone Edge Farm Aerial
Stone Edge Farm – Sonoma, CA: Downed power lines have caused raging fires and millions to lose power throughout California. With multiple solar arrays, batteries, a natural gas turbine, a hydrogen electrolyzer and fuel cells, Stone Edge Farms (SEF) has deployed a fully autonomous, resilient and sustainable microgrid system.

Kirtland Airforce Base – Albuquerque, NM: In partnership with Emera Technologies and Sandia National Laboratories, the Kirtland Air Force Base deployed a highly resilient and secure system of DC nanogrids. Each home has solar PV and a battery, and the system can be islanded from the grid and/or offer reliable grid services when grid tied.

CASE: Community Microgrid

CASE: Community Microgrid


Basalt Vista Housing Project – Basalt, CO: Holy Cross Energy (HCE), a co-op electrical utility in Colorado, has deployed a transactive net-zero community. Each home has battery storage, roof-mounted PV solar panels, controllable water heaters, and an EV charging station, and can react to signals from the utility to serve both the needs of the community and the larger electrical grid.

SWEPCO Training Center – Shreveport, LA: The Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) sought to build an aggregated network of DERs where energy resources from homes and businesses could be deployed as a single virtual power plant. To date, the system has supported the distribution grid, managing total energy supply and helping peak shaving efforts.
