Do solar panels cause cancer?
Home solar panels are a new concept to many homeowners, so it’s understandable if there are some misconceptions out there. One of the myths you can find on the internet is that solar panels are associated with cancer. The supposed reason is that a solar array emits non-ionizing electromagnetic (EM) radiation, which some people falsly believe is carcinogenic. It’s not. Solar panels do not cause cancer. A properly functioning solar system doesn’t emit any more EM radiation that the electrical wires that are already in your home do.
