To save around $8,000 per year, the Kentucky Coal Museum is installing rooftop solar panels.

The museum is in Benham, a town of 500 people, down from 3,000 in it’s coal town heyday.

The move is seen as part of a wider movement in Kentucky to move away from coal energy, which is considered to be increasingly replaced by natural gas.
