File this under "Man Bites Dog": the Kentucky Coal Mining Museum announced this week that it is switching to solar energy.

WYMT has the story. The museum, which is located in Benham, Ky. in the heart of Coal Country and owned by Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College, is making the switch to save money.

Museum officials estimate the 20 solar panels will save the museum $8-10,000 annually on energy costs. That money will go back to the college to help in its mission of educating students.
