Reservoir in Kanalski Vrh is a composing element of the Pumping – Storage Hydro Power Plant in Avče, the first power plant of this kind in Slovenia. The plant uses cheap electric power (at night, weekends) for pumping water from the River Soča into a reservoir, whereas during the high prices of electric power (rush hours on working days), the thus collected water is used to produce electric power. The reservoir in Kanalski Vrh has a volume of over two million cubic
metres which makes it an interesting stop for excursions.
