I was doing some research on the effects of an EMP on a solar rig. I can't seem to find any info about the effect on the panels, I know it could fry the inverter and controller for sure. Especially if its a man made EMP. Is there anyway to protect this equipment? I've purchased an inverter generator to charge my batteries during extended cloudy days and I'm storing it in a Faraday cage along with some of my extra test equipment that I don't use anymore. From what I understand is an EMP will follow the power lines into the equipment. Even the lines running from the panels to the inverter will serve as antennas for the pulse, and grounding won't help. Next year NASA says it could get pretty bad with sun activity however our biggest risk is man made. Thanks
