1980s Commodore Amiga Running Heat and AC at 19 Public Schools in Michigan

Episode 1196

The heat and AC at 19 public schools in Grand Rapids, MI is run off of a 30 year old Commodore Amiga, according to a story from WOOD TV 8. The computer was purchased with money from an energy bond in the 1980's, replacing a refrigerator sized computer at the time. The computer system turns the heat and air conditioners on and off for 19 buildings and monitors the temperature. A high schooler programmed it, and whenever the district has a problem, they go back to that same former student.
