The Canadian Minister of Energy, the Honourable Bob Chiarelli, has announced the commencement of commercial operations for NRStor Incorporated's (NRStor) 2MW Temporal Power Limited (Temporal Power) flywheel energy storage facility in Harriston, Ontario.

This project is the first grid-connected commercial flywheel facility in Canada and will provide regulation service to Ontario's Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).  NRStor was awarded a contract to deliver 2MW of regulation service to the IESO through a competitive request for proposals process.  Regulation service is a contracted service that matches scheduled electricity generation to dynamic consumption; balancing the grid in real time. A flywheel is a mechanical battery that stores electricity as kinetic motion in a spinning steel rotor levitated on magnetic bearings.
