BENHAM, Ky. (WYMT) - An unlikely building is switching to solar powered energy.


The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum in Benham is owned by Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College. Communications Director Brandon Robinson told WYMT they're hoping to save money by the switch.

"We believe that this project will help save at least eight to ten thousand dollars, off the energy costs on this building alone, so it's a very worthy effort and it's going to save the college money in the long run," said Robinson.

The work began Tuesday to power the energy, not by coal, but by the sun.

City officials also told WYMT, the Benham School House Inn is looking into the project. 

“Whereas any one line of evidence may be weak in itself, a number of lines of evidence, taken together and found to be consistent, reinforce one another exponentially.”
