Modern solar power technology is a great option for those looking for a ‘green' source of energy. But how much do we know about the impacts of solar? Do solar panels give off EMF?
Over the years, solar energy has been on the rise due to its environmental benefits. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it also saves you a lot of money on your utility bills. Many households are considering investing in solar panels for these very reasons.
Modern solar modules can generate large amounts of energy which makes it a great option for running all the electronic components in your home.
Solar panels generate sources of green energy. Solar is considered green energy because there is no emission of toxic gases that pollute the environment.
While the initial setup plan can be expensive, it has many long-term financial benefits. Although solar power systems have environmental benefits, some solar equipment components generate both magnetic and electrical field radiation.
How Do Solar Panels Work?
The solar panel system comprises different components, each of which emits different types of radiation. We can divide these components into four parts:
- Solar panels
- The wiring system
- Solar controller or smart meter
Since solar panels themselves do not give off dangerous electromagnetic radiation, they do not expose you to a high risk of radiation.
Solar panels only generate a low-voltage direct current that emits small amounts of electromagnetic radiation.
Additionally, the panels are mainly installed on roofs or outside the house, where they absorb the sun's rays. Therefore, they are far from your body and although they generate high levels of electromagnetic radiation, they will not affect you.
The Role of Sunlight in Solar Power
When sunlight hits the solar panels, they convert the solar energy into electricity. Photovoltaic cells within solar panels can generate electricity from solar energy.
The energy generated is transferred to other solar components through the wiring network. Connecting the solar panels to the inverter ensures that the generated direct current flows into the inverter and is then converted to a 120-volt alternating current, which powers all the electronic devices in your home.
Inverters are installed in the house. For instance, you could have a large inverter box close to the main appliances in your home, or you could have a micro-inverter under the solar panels.
Micro-inverters transfer power to a larger inverter, which then distributes the power to other devices.
The electrical energy from the solar panels is clean, while the alternating current from the inverters emits dirty electricity.
Also, you can install a solar controller or smart meter to regulate the amount of electricity sent to the inverters.
What is Radiation?
Radiation is a term often associated with harmful effects, but understanding its different forms and sources is crucial to grasp whether solar panels give off radiation.
Radiation refers to the emission of energy in the form of electromagnetic waves or particles. There are two main types of radiation: ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation.
Ionizing radiation encompasses high-energy particles such as X-rays and gamma rays, which can ionize atoms and potentially damage cells.
On the other hand, non-ionizing radiation includes lower-energy waves like radio waves, microwaves, and visible light.
Solar panels primarily generate non-ionizing radiation in the form of light and heat energy through the photovoltaic process.
Therefore, the concern regarding solar panel radiation mainly revolves around potential exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields, rather than ionizing radiation that poses significant health risks.
Types of Radiation
Solar panels primarily emit non-ionizing radiation, which includes visible light, ultraviolet (UV) light, and infrared (IR) radiation.
Many consider these forms of radiation safe for human exposure, as they do not possess enough energy to ionize atoms or molecules in the body.
Visible light is the radiation that we can see with our eyes, and solar panels convert sunlight into visible light. UV light, on the other hand, has a shorter wavelength than visible light and can cause damage to the skin and eyes in excessive amounts.
However, solar panels do not emit high levels of UV light, and the UV emissions are typically directed away from humans.
Infrared radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation that carries heat. Solar panels emit infrared radiation as they absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity.
While excessive exposure to intense heat can cause burns, the amount of infrared radiation emitted by solar panels is considered minimal and poses no significant health risks.
Solar panels primarily emit non-ionizing radiation such as visible light, UV light, and infrared radiation. These forms of radiation are generally safe and do not pose any harmful effects to human health.
Solar Panels and Radiation
Solar panels are a popular source of clean and renewable energy. They harness the power of sunlight and convert it into electricity through photovoltaic cells.
While there have been concerns about the potential for solar panels to emit radiation, it is important to understand that solar panels primarily convert sunlight into visible light and infrared radiation.
Do Solar Panels Give Off Radiation?
Solar panels do give off radiation but it is important to note that the type of radiation they emit is non-ionizing radiation, which is considered to be much safer than ionizing radiation emitted by sources such as nuclear reactors and X-ray machines.
The main types of radiation emitted by solar panels are electromagnetic radiation and electrical fields.
Electromagnetic radiation from solar panels primarily comes from the conversion of sunlight into electricity through photovoltaic cells. This includes visible light, which is essential for the functioning of solar panels.
However, solar panels also emit small amounts of low-level electromagnetic fields (EMFs) associated with the flow of electrical energy within the panels themselves and through the wiring that connects them to the power grid. These EMFs are similar to those produced by other electrical devices.
Several studies have linked low level EMF exposure to changes in the functionality of the brain in children and adolescents.
Other studies have shown a link before EMF exposure and infertility in men.
To reduce exposure to solar panel radiation, individuals can consider alternative placement of their solar panels or use protective products, such as our Orgone Energy Line, to limit the EMF exposure.
It is also advisable to consult with a professional when installing solar panel systems to ensure safe and proper wiring and grounding practices that will reduce any potential health risks associated with radiation exposure.
Sources of Solar Panel Radiation
In addition to the solar panels themselves, there are other components within a solar panel system that can be sources of radiation. Two such sources are smart meters and inverters.
Smart meters, which are often used in solar panel systems to monitor energy production and consumption, emit electromagnetic fields (EMFs) as they communicate wirelessly with the power grid. These EMFs can contribute to the overall radiation levels in a solar panel system.
Inverters, on the other hand, are responsible for converting the direct current (DC) electricity produced by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used in our homes.
During this conversion process, inverters can generate high-frequency voltage transients, also known as dirty electricity.
Dirty electricity is a form of electromagnetic pollution that can contribute to the overall EMF radiation within a solar panel system.
While many debate whether there is substantial evidence to suggest that the radiation emitted by smart meters and inverters poses significant health risks, long-term exposure to high levels of EMF radiation and dirty electricity have potential effects on human health.
It is important for solar panel system owners to be aware of these sources and take appropriate measures to minimize their exposure to EMF radiation and dirty electricity.
This can be achieved through proper installation, utilizing EMF protection products, and adhering to safety guidelines provided by experts in the field.
Do Solar Panels Give Off EMF Radiation?
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells as well as other electronic components that help to generate electricity. These electronic components give off electromagnetic radiation when electricity passes from one device to the other.
Solar panels typically use two (2) kinds of photovoltaic technology: thin films and silicon cells. Crystalline silicon cells are used in many homes to produce electricity because they are not toxic. Thin-film solar panels use a different type of technology than silicon cells. These types of solar panels are ideal for commercial use.
Additionally, thin-film panels contain compounds such as telluride, gallium arsenide, and cadmium. These compounds emit EMFs to some extent.
Solar panels generate direct current (DC). The flow of direct current through the components of the solar module generates small amounts of EMF radiation compared to cables that carry alternating current (AC). As a result, an alternating current flows through the wires, emitting dirty electricity associated with high levels of electromagnetic radiation.
The dirty electricity produced increases electromagnetic radiation in your home. Each of the solar components has modern electronics that give off low levels of EMFs and RF (radiofrequency) radiation.
For instance, solar inverters convert the direct current produced by solar panels into alternating current that can be used by various electronic devices. The inverter serves as a source of RF and EMF radiation, as it converts direct current into alternating current.
The emitted electromagnetic radiation comprises protons that move at different frequencies and assume different properties, while the radiofrequency from solar inverters is non-ionizing.
Just like the cables that carry the alternating current from the inverter, solar inverters generate small amounts of EMF radiation. The DC cables from the solar panels to the inverter do not give off the same EMF radiation that is emitted by the AC cables. DC cables only give off static magnetic fields when electricity flows through them.
How Much EMF Radiation Do Solar Panels Emit?
The amount of electromagnetic radiation (in the form of dirty electricity) emitted by solar panels varies.
There are several considerations such as the size of the panel, the number of panels, the amount of sunlight available, other sources of dirty electricity in the house, the efficiency of the inverter.
No one can say that solar panels give off a specific amount of dirty electricity. You need to take all variables into account and measure with a wide range of dirty electricity meters.
When measuring dirty electricity indoors, we recommend using a Greenwave meter, a Graham Stetzer meter, a PicoScope, and an Owon oscilloscope.
This combination of meters gives you measurements at different frequencies and the PicoScope and oscilloscope show a visual representation of the level of dirty electricity.
The only way to know how much dirty electricity you have in your home is by measuring.
Do Solar Inverters Emit Radiation?
You can install inverters in two ways:
- They can be in the shape of a large box that is placed near the electrical panel.
- They can be “micro-inverters” inside or below the solar panels, but they are always connected to a larger inverter.
Regardless of how your solar panel inverter is installed, it can still emit RF radiation as a by-product of converting electricity to AC.
Some solar panel owners or who have neighbors who own a solar panel owner have
This is useful because the inverter's cables can act as an antenna through which EMF radiation can be given off.
When solar panels produce more electricity than connected devices need, the excess electricity is trapped in the cables. Modern electrical devices are designed to utilize less energy, and as a result, unusable electrical energy bounces back due to the high-frequency voltage transients.
Electricity trapped in the cable system increases the electromagnetic radiation in your home or office. Mostly, dirty electricity is given off by devices with 60 or 50 Hz electrical systems, for instance:
- When the inverter converts 60 Hz alternating current into low voltage direct current.
- When using high voltage alternating current.
- When devices are consuming power intermittently, they are consuming power in a smaller burst, typically within seconds, as the power is continuously turned on and off.
What is Dirty Electricity?
Converting low voltage direct current from solar panels to usable alternating current in your home creates
If you are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, you are more affected. The radiation emitted by smart meters and inverters can be very dangerous for our health.
Installing a Geoclense Orgone Negative Ion Generator in your house can help to neutralize the harmful "dirty electricity" from the solar electricity systems and highly noxious smart meters.
The Geoclense is a healthy, negative charge resonance field generator designed to balance the noxious, unhealthy positive charge resonance created by smart meters and all forms of EMR, RF, Earth Radiation, and Bioplasmic Radiation.
Does Solar Energy Affect Human Health?
As solar panels become more and more popular, many people have complained about the effects they are having on their health.
Additionally, several people complained of discomfort when approaching a solar panel system.
Solar-powered homes exhibited high levels of radiofrequency radiation. This explains why some suddenly felt dizzy, nauseous, and disoriented.
Another concerned citizen shared her experience of exposure to electromagnetic fields from dirty electricity.
She said that because of the high frequencies of the wiring in her house; she developed a mild fever, nerve pain, dizziness, and night sweats.
She knew about electromagnetic fields and suspected that the culprits were her electronic devices as well as other appliances that triggered the variable speed drives. As soon as she turned off their circuits, she rested better and nausea disappeared.
Ways to Protect Yourself from Solar Panel Radiation
Keep Your Distance
Keeping your distance from the source of electromagnetic radiation is a smart way to protect yourself.
Although solar panels do not give off EMF radiation, smart meters and inverters do. Keeping your distance from them limits the risk of EMF exposure. The smart meters and inverter should be installed in a room with less foot traffic. This ensures that the radiation is only concentrated in less frequented areas.
Do Away with Smart Meters
You can choose to reduce your exposure to EMFs by forgoing smart meters. Some states will install smart meters in your solar system, and if you choose not to participate, some fees could be charged. While other states do not have any problem with users opting out, others will not allow you to do so. Always follow the electrical regulatory standards for your state. You can alternatively install a solar controller that only monitors the electricity generated by the solar panels and ensures that the electricity is not trapped in the wiring. Compared to smart meters, solar controllers give off low amounts of radiation.
EMF Protection Devices
Another alternative way to protect yourself from exposure is to use an EMF protection device like the Dome Orgone Schumann Generator or Geoclense Negative Ion Generator.
The highly protective Dome Schumann Resonance Orgone Generators are powerful Orgone accumulators that neutralize and harmonize electrical wiring in your walls and dangerous Smart Meters. This makes them an ideal energy balance for any electromagnetic fields in any room.
Orgone Generator domes raise the vibrational healing energy of the magnetic grids and fault zones to a life-giving status, reducing the physical stress and mental health problems in places where solar panels are installed.
The GeoClense is another EMF protective device that offers protection against EMF radiation.
he Geoclense Orgone Negative Ion Generator consistently generates healthy beneficial Negative ions that work by harmoniously neutralizing harmful "dirty electricity" from the solar panels and highly noxious smart meters, counteracting each one of these destructive energies such as radiation and electromagnetic frequencies.
Potential Health Risks Related to Solar Panel Radiation
Solar panel systems have revolutionized the way we generate electricity, but it's important to address the potential health risks associated with the radiation they emit. One of the primary concerns is the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produced by these systems.
EMFs are a type of radiation that can be emitted by various electrical devices and power grids, including solar panel systems.
Prolonged exposure to EMFs has been linked to a range of health issues, including increased cancer risk.
Another concern is the production of dirty electricity, which occurs during the conversion process from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) electricity by the solar panel inverters.
Dirty electricity refers to high-frequency voltage transients that can contaminate the electrical system, contributing to higher levels of EMF radiation.
Studies have shown that exposure to dirty electricity may have detrimental effects on human health, including increased risk of chronic conditions such as migraines, sleep disturbances, and even certain neurological disorders.
While the potential health risks of solar panel radiation are still a topic of debate, it is important to consider the potential dangers and take necessary precautions.
This includes minimizing prolonged exposure and opting for solar panel systems that have lower EMF emissions. It is also recommended to consult with professionals and conduct regular EMF assessments to ensure the safety of solar panel installations.
Ways to Reduce Exposure to Solar Panel Radiation
There are several effective ways to reduce exposure to solar panel radiation and minimize its potential health risks. Here are some solutions and steps to implement:
Utilize DC-Powered Appliances: By using appliances that run on direct current (DC) instead of alternating current (AC), you can greatly reduce your exposure to electromagnetic radiation. DC-powered appliances can bypass the need for an inverter, which is a common source of EMF radiation.
Use EMF Protection Products: Our Orgone Energy line features many options to protect yourself against EMF exposure. We offer whole home EMF protection solutions, such as our Geoclense and Domes, personal protection, such as our pendants and even protection for your pets!
Use Shungite: Shungite is known for its healing and protective properties. It can purify water and also provide EMF protection! Shungite comes in many different forms. From pyramids, spheres, and cubes for beautiful and protective decor to protective jewelry for the benefits of shungite on the go.
Monitor Dirty Electricity: Install a dirty electricity meter to measure and track the levels of high-frequency voltage transients in your electrical system. By identifying sources of dirty electricity, such as solar panel inverters, you can take steps to minimize their impact and reduce radiation levels.
Strategically Place Inverters: When installing solar panels, consider the strategic placement of inverters. By positioning them away from frequently occupied areas, you can minimize your exposure to EMFs. It's also important to consider the layout of your home or office building to ensure that the inverters are installed in less frequented areas.
By implementing these steps, you can effectively reduce your exposure to solar panel radiation and create a healthier living or working environment.
Other Sources of EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation
In addition to solar panels, there are several other sources of EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation that can potentially affect our health.
These sources include electrical devices, cell phones, electrical wiring, smart meters, power lines, and various electronic devices.
Exposure to EMF radiation from these sources has raised concerns about potential negative effects on human health.
While the scientific community continues to study the long-term health effects of exposure to EMF radiation, there are steps that can be taken to minimize our exposure.
By understanding the different sources of EMF radiation and implementing measures to mitigate its impact, we can create healthier living and working environments.
Electric Devices in the Home
Electric devices commonly found in homes have the potential to emit electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation. EMF radiation is generated by the flow of electrical current through these devices and can have an impact on human health.
Some of the most common household electric devices that emit EMF radiation include cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, laptops, televisions, and hairdryers.
These devices generate EMF radiation through the use of electricity and the operation of their internal components.
Exposure to high levels of EMF radiation has been associated with various health concerns, including increased cancer risk and negative effects on the nervous and reproductive systems. However, the majority of household electric devices emit low-level electromagnetic fields that are generally considered safe.
To reduce exposure to EMF radiation from these devices, it is recommended to keep an appropriate distance from them when they are in use, turn devices off when not in use, consider using wired connections instead of wireless, and limit the amount of time spent using them.
By being aware of the potential risks and taking simple precautions, individuals can minimize exposure to EMF radiation from electric devices in the home and protect their health.
Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices
Cell phones and other wireless devices are among the most common sources of electromagnetic radiation, specifically in the form of radio frequencies (RF).
These devices emit RF radiation due to the transmission and reception of signals necessary for wireless communication.
Studies have shown the RF from cell phone use can change the stem cells in the brain which can lead to various types of cancer.
In relation to solar panels, it's important to clarify that solar panels themselves do not emit radiation. Solar panels convert energy from the sun into electricity using photovoltaic cells, without generating any form of radiation.
However, solar panel systems require inverters to convert the direct current (DC) produced by the panels into the alternating current (AC) used in households, and some types of inverters can produce low-frequency electromagnetic fields.
Prolonged exposure to RF radiation from cell phones and wireless devices has been a topic of health concern.
Some studies suggest a potential link between long-term, high-level exposure to RF radiation and certain health risks, including increased cancer risk and damage to DNA.
Power Grids and Smart Meters
Power grids play a crucial role in delivering electricity to our homes and businesses. They are complex systems that consist of power plants, transmission lines, substations, and distribution networks. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in implementing smart meters as part of the power grid infrastructure.
Smart meters are advanced utility meters that track energy usage and provide real-time data on electricity consumption. They are designed to enhance efficiency and enable more accurate billing. However, it is important to note that smart meters emit RF (radio frequency) radiation when transmitting data.
RF radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation that is emitted by various electronic devices, including wireless devices and smart meters.
It is worth noting that smart meter emissions occur intermittently and at relatively low levels compared to other sources of RF radiation, such as cell phones.
Nonetheless, individuals who are particularly concerned about RF radiation exposure may consider taking precautionary measures, such as keeping a distance from the smart meter or using shielding devices.
Smart meters are utility meters used to track data usage and transmit information within the power grid. While they emit RF radiation during data transmission, the levels are generally considered to be within safety limits.
However, individuals who are concerned about RF radiation exposure should consider taking appropriate measures to mitigate their exposure.
Solar panel power systems are quite beneficial when you want to cut the cost of electricity bills. The solar power system is eco-friendly because the system does not contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
However, the solar system as a whole emits EMF radiation, which can be detrimental with prolonged exposure. Although the solar modules themselves do not give off any radiation, other solar components such as smart meters and inverters emit a large amount of EMF radiation.
Solar inverters give off dirty electricity, which increases the level of electromagnetic radiation in your home.
Long-term exposure to emitted radiofrequency causes negative health problems in humans. If you are very sensitive to EMF radiation, you should not install a solar power system in your home.
However, if the solar power system is already installed, make sure the inverter is installed in a room with less traffic. Don't install it in a room where you spend a lot of your time.
Your best solution for protecting yourself from electromagnetic fields and dirty electricity (or worse, the smart meter you had to install) is a Dome Orgone Schumann Generator or Geoclense Negative Ion Generator. This device is able to neutralize the effects of electromagnetic fields anywhere.
