Exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) is a part of normal life from the appliances used in our homes, cell phones we use, and electrical lines in our neighborhoods. However, the strength of this electromagnetic field decreases very rapidly with distance so it is highly unlikely people would be exposed to all but extremely low levels of electromagnetic fields at the perimeter of a solar facility. EMF is measured in milligauss (mG). For reference, at typical vacuum cleaner emits 300 mG at 6 inches and decreases to 2 mG at 3 feet. At 50 feet from a typical inverter used at a solar facility (most equipment is well inside the fence of a solar facility), the electromagnetic field is 1 mG or less – probably lower than your exposure from appliances in your home. At the perimeter fencing of a project, it is likely that the EMF exposure is far lower than found inside a typical home.
Research has not shown a causal link between exposure to electromagnetic fields and potential cancer. In addition, an international commission has set an upward limit of 2000 mG, far higher than EMF level in or near solar facilities. New York has set a 200 mG level at right of ways near electric transmission lines. It is not likely that solar facilities will expose people to EMF that has a health risk.
