The Kvanndal power plant began operating in 1967. Kvanndal generates electricity from a water drop of 300 meters and one Francis turbine.

Kvanndal gets water from regulating reservoirs in Sandvatnet, Holmavatnet and Isvatnet, in addition to numerous small river intakes. The water from Kvanndal is sent on through tunnels to the Suldal II power plant, where it can produce energy again. These plants are part of the Røldal / Suldal development, where power was originally produced for Hydro's aluminium plant in Karmøy.
