It’s time we at last discussion about solar panel radiation, and whether that ought to be a worry for you.
In the course of the last 5-10 years, the expense of installing a solar panel framework in your home has gone down altogether.
This implies that the cash you save from free energy generated by the solar panels, at last, exceeds the expense of installing the system.
The aftereffect of this move implies that we see more solar panel, or photovoltaic frameworks, introduced on homes, workplaces, even vans and RV’s.
To start with, we should just quickly address the elephant in the room – Do solar panels produce EMF radiation? Albeit solar panels do transmit EMF radiation, it is tiny, and likely not perilous.
The main problem is that the solar panel framework, or photovoltaic framework, makes dirty electricity that at last transmits EMF radiation into the home.
The other concern originates from “smart meters” introduced to monitor how much solar energy is being created by the home.
Let us dive deep into how solar panels work and let us together figure out if the radiation produced by them is really a threat to our health and safety.

Understanding solar panels
Above all else, the solar panels themselves are not liable to be an EMF radiation hazard. They produce just a limited quantity of low voltage direct flow of electricity which creates scarcely any EMF radiation.
Likewise, since the panels are not anyplace close to your body, regardless of whether they transmitted more EMF radiation, the separation is probably going to ensure that you are safe anyway.
These solar panels work by changing over light into power when daylight strikes against the panels. Minerals in the panels can make this transformation.
That recently produced power goes through a wiring framework to what in particular is called an Inverter. The inverter changes this unusable energy into 120 volt AC that can be utilized to run ordinary hardware, for example, your TV, PC, or whatever else.
It goes into your electrical system simply similar to how electricity from your power utility company would.
These inverters are typically installed in one of two different ways. They are either in the shape of enormous boxes that sit somewhere in the home (usually close to the electrical panel).
Or on the other hand, they are miniature inverters placed underneath or close to the panels themselves. These miniature inverters typically still feed into a bigger inverter someplace on the property before the power really makes it into the grid.
In any case, the power that runs through wires between the panels and the inverter doesn’t really produce any radiation.
That doesn’t imply that solar panel frameworks don’t create dirty electricity, since they do, it just comes after the inverter. We’ll discuss more of that in a moment.
A few homes decide to just utilize the power for their own needs. Be that as it may, numerous individuals choose to sell all, or a few, of their solar-produced power back to the utility company.
In these situations (and even without this exact case) a “smart meter” is installed to screen how much energy is being created, what amount is being utilized, how proficient the panels are being, and so on.
Much the same as some other smart meter, these meters send information wirelessly in packets. At the point when that information is transmitted, a lot of RF radiation is generated.
In this way, to summarize, it up, albeit solar panels themselves don’t radiate EMF, the systems totally do. Most EMF radiation that outcomes from solar panel frameworks originate from the smart meters and the dirty electricity that is produced.
In the next section, we discuss the implications of this and how dangerous these really can be for us.
Smart meters and radiation
RF or radio-frequency, radiation is one of the three main types of EMF radiation. The other two are magnetic field and electric field radiation.
Radiofrequency is produced from pretty much any gadget that transmits or receives correspondence wirelessly. Radio waves are utilized to send parcels of information between two wireless gadgets and in doing so, they discharge a kind of non-ionizing radiation.
RF radiation has appeared in many investigations to have negative organic impacts when you’re exposed to it for extensive stretches of time. Regular sources of RF radiation include phones, Wi-Fi switches, cell towers (including 5G towers), and smart meters.
Smart meters, on the off chance that you don’t have a clue, are just utility meters that track utilization and communicate information about that use wirelessly. This saves the utility service money since they don’t need to send representatives to peruse the meters.
Nonetheless, when these smart meters communicate that information, they emanate a lot of RF radiation, exposing individuals that are close to it. Smart meters thus, especially if they are on the same wall shared with your bedroom, pose a significant risk.
With regard to radiation from a solar panel system, we have to take a gander at how much radiation is being discharged explicitly from the solar smart meter.
Presently, not every system will have one of these meters and you are likely to have these smart meters only if you are looking to sell a portion of the energy back to an organization, or if the zone you live in requires them.
On the off chance that you do have a solar smart meter (or a smart meter by any means), we’ll talk about ways you can secure yourself in a moment.
Shielding yourself from solar panel radiation
There are a few procedures you can utilize to shield yourself from radiation that eventually is brought about by solar panel systems.
Before I get into the best ways of getting rid of this smart meter radiation, I would first recommend that you get yourself a nice, high-quality EMF meter. Find the best one here in my other article: Best EMF Meters For Home Use. And to learn how to use one to test a smart meter see here: How To Test a Smart Meter For EMF Radiation
I prescribe buying an EMF meter to everybody that is worried about EMF radiation, regardless of whether that is Wi-Fi in their home, their microwave, RF, or even solar panels.
What a decent EMF meter will permit you to do, isn’t possibly only help in discovering wellsprings of radiation; it will also help you accurately gauge whether the things you’re doing to moderate that radiation are really working.
The best way to really avoid getting exposed to all this radiation is to opt out of having a solar panel smart meter. Much the same as with utility smart meters, there might be a path for you to give up having a solar panel smart meter.
A considerable lot of these meters are installed by power companies without the homeowner’s permission or consent.
In the event that you understand that your solar panel system has a smart meter, contact the organization that installed it and gets some information about opting out.
Smart meter opt-outs are as yet an uncertain situation, and states are settling on what they will permit.
In a few states, you can opt-out but the organization can charge you an expense, a few states lets you opt-out and they can’t charge you an expense, and in some other states you can’t opt out by any means.
A utility in Rhode Island charges a one-time fee of $27, while a Texas utility’s one-time fee is $171. The monthly fees range from around $9 to $32 information from NCSL.ORG
Notwithstanding, this ought to totally be your first step, since, in such a case that you can dispose of the smart meter, this becomes your easiest solution.
On the off chance that you can’t opt-out of your solar panel smart meter, at that point, you have to decrease the measure of the radiation that it is exposing you to.
I have a detailed article on how you can do exactly that and some choice product recommendations that I personally use.
It should act as a perfect start-up guide and will help you reduce radiation levels in your home significantly.
