URL More about Jukla Hydro Power Plants
Jukla power plant is located in Kvinnherad Municipality in Hordaland County. The power station exploits an elevation difference from the regulation reservoir in lake Juklavatn. Water is also collected from reservoirs in lakes Dravladalsvatn Jukladalsvatn and Kvanngrøvvatn as well as a few creek intakes.
