KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The University of Tennessee's solar-powered house is making a final stop in Chattanooga through July 29.

The energy-efficient house has been toured by nearly 50,000 people while open for visits in Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis and Washington, D.C. After Chattanooga, the 750-square-foot home will return to Knoxville where it will sit at the UT Gardens.

In downtown Chattanooga, it will be in front of Renaissance Park. It was recently on exhibit in Washington as part of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

The home, called Living Light, became an educational exhibition last November after returning from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon.
