A simple answer to the question at hand would be no, but let us go more in-depth into the reasons the idea that solar panels being dangerous is wrong. First things first it’s important to note that as reported by the State Of Oregon, solar panels are safe and beneficial for the environment because they don’t produce harmful greenhouse gases. As well as they went on to say that the materials used to produce solar panels “do not add a greater risk to things already found in today’s modern society.” but the added benefits of producing solar panels to the alternatives is that after production they go on to be better for the world. One of the major key features of solar panels that make it so attractive is obviously the fact it is better for the environment. But as far as general safety how safe is it actually? Well, solar panels can not explode nor can they set your house on fire. This is actually a massive revelation in the world of electrical science. An alternative to traditional electricity is in many ways a safe alternative. But do solar panels bring up any major health concerns? In short, they don’t solar panels are made with materials that don’t pose a threat to animals or society. The only part of a solar panel that should be given even the smallest bit of concern is the fact there is a very small amount of lead inside of them. But even then that’s not really an issue either. I know there are a lot of studies out there proclaiming they could be bad for your health but there is a major difference between causation and correlation and there is nothing in the solar panels that can cause any forms of cancer or health risk. If you want to do more research on the topic itself there will be many links below to outside sources giving your more in-depth research and details about the safety of Solar panels.
