As someone who has studied the electromagnetic radiation issues as they pertain to human health, I have learned over the years, the electrical lines that run to the house from utility companies ... the BX cable that runs from where electricity wires come to the house, and along the BX cable that runs to the circuit box can emit a rather strong field 40 to 80 millirads depending upon what the house draw is (how many appliances are on in the house) and that this field can be measured many feet from the wall. As you know, while background is around 2 millirads, it is not suggested that the workplace exposure be much above that. So 40 to 80 is of considerable concern. The closer one gets to the source the higher the strength of the radiation. So sleeping near where a line comes into your house and where it runs to the breaker box is not a good idea.
The medical thinking on the subject, by the way, is that living in a strong magnetic field forces your body to start to vibrate in sympathy with the rate of vibration of the strong EMF. Your body has its own vibratory rate, and it is not meant to vibrate at a different rate. While your body can recover and come back to its own vibration rates by leaving the field, staying in the field for too long a time is thought to cause molecular instability due to being in the field for too long. And thus, it thought to create issues akin to other forms of radiation exposure, mainly that it cells lose their equilibrium and become unstable for vibrating to long at a rate they are not meant to vibrate at. This is the medical thinking, and this is the reason one looks at the strength of the fields to which one is exposed.
I have been attempting to learn whether or not PV panels generate a similar fields. I would like to find out whether there have been any studies on the fields generated by solar panels. After searching the Internet extensively, I have found nothing at all on the subject, not even anything that states that PV panels are safe in this regard. If it is safe and free from electromagnetic radiation, would it not be good idea to publicize that. If there have been no studies or research, then that would be equally good to know.
Does the fact that panels produce DC reduce negate the fields associated with regular electrical power, and would the fields then be generated at the inverter, where the DC gets converted to AC? Another words, if the panels themselves are free of concern, do the inverters generate such fields? Knowing what to isolate oneself from would be useful if such fields are generated anywhere along the line.
By the way, while the concern may be due to my ignorance on how solar panels really work, and therefore, can accept the fact that this is the reason there is so little to be found on the subject, I am still surprised that novices like myself, who are in great abundance to be sure, haven't brought up this issue before, and that these questions are not being asked online at all.
Any input at all on this issue would be greatly appreciated, as I am actively considering an installation of PV panels for my home.
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
