In 1999 the new power station was opened at Flørli by the Lysefjord in Ryfylke, far inside the mountain. The old power station and the steps leading up to it have now been made available for new activities. A walk will take you round the area: 700 (out of 4,444) of the steps, a new marked trail to the upper part of the village and back down to the fjord's edge. You can wander around the old generator hall, which now has cultural history exhibitions in several rooms.
For many years the power plant at Flørli has been important for the supply of electricity to Stavanger. Power development in the 1920s led to the development of the settlement at Flørli which clings to the steep terrain by the shore. The power station is easily seen and there are also houses for the employees of plant.
Flørli is the innermost farm on the southern side of the fjord with the exeption of those farmsteads at the head of the fjord. Timber and saw mills provide the basis for activity in Flørliånå. In 1708 a large landslide occured at Flørli and the farm was abandoned for almost 100 years. Then the farm was rehabilitated but ceased once more when the hydro-electric development came in 1915-20 and created a new society at Flørli.
