The history of Vestkorn goes back to 1855, long before anyone of us were born. Businessmen from Stavanger wanted to build a mill and needed power. They found what they were looking for in Tau, and a mill driven by direct water-power was established. Since that time, in 162 years, the renewable energy has been a key to Vestkorn. Today the water from the river is turned into electrical power by the help of a Francis water-turbin, just before sea-level. However the lovely view and sound of the river can still be enjoyed.
