Mine shaft

Well, it's dark as a dungeon, way down in . . . oh, never mind. Now, this is irony:

When a famous coal museum wanted to save some money on its electricity bill, it turned to the obvious power source. Yes, Wales' Big Pit National Coal Mining Museum has installed 200 solar panels on its roof.
