Residents in Goderich, Ont. are protesting the merit of an energy storage demonstration project as it nears the final stages of local and environmental approvals.

"It's just something that's new and different," said Katherine Peretick, NRStor Inc. director of engineering about her company's proposal to store power in a former salt mine. "We want a productive dialogue here where everybody is talking about the facts and we want to get the facts out there as much as we can."
