Description

KGTV-TV reports on the behind-the-scene role of David Malcolm, member of the San Diego Port Commission, in a "historic deal that put Duke Energy Power services in position to operate the Southbay Power plant, located on port land." Malcolm acted as consultant for Duke Energy and was involved with the company on business deals to acquire power plants. Another major finding is that during the energy crisis in California the Southbay plant had power to spare but this fact remained hidden from the public. After the series aired, the manager at the Duke plants was replaced, and Malcolm resigned. The contest entry file includes supporting materials, among which some Southbay plant's internal documents, press releases, and stories published by the Orange County Register and the San-Diego Union Tribune.
