It was a year ago Thursday that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station was partially shut down after workers found excessive wear in some reactor tubing.

In recognition of the emergency shutdown, San Clemente Green is holding an event at the Community Center Saturday. The event is being billed as the "1st Annual NoSanO Anniversary: 1 Year Without San Onofre" and will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Actor and environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. is set to make an appearance and talk about his experience with alternative energy sources. Live music will also be provided by the Kalama Brothers.

The U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce President Steve Bender will also discuss the green job market.

Pizza and wine will be served. Tickets are $15 at the door.
