Hi, I've found a house I love and want to buy, but there is quite a high voltage power line running near to it. It's 11kv and it basically looks like a wooden pole with 3 wires running in a horizontal row. I've attached a pic of the type of pole. Does anyone live near one of these? Would you buy a house near a high voltage power line in terms of health risks of electromagnetic fields?! Or am I overthinking this! Thanks, any opinions welcome.
That type of power line, that far from the house would be ok with me. Pylon near by or wires going over the house then not good IMO. Looks like a countryside location, if so this will surly be a common thing, houses will need electricity, thus having these power lines not too far away.
We actually did buy it in the end! I think it isn't uncommon to live near this type of smaller power line in the countryside and it's at least 50m from the house (pic attached) so I decided it would be fine. Especially after (and this is going to sound very tin-foil hat paranoid!!) I bought an electromagnetic field monitor and tested the area and my London house, and the London house had higher readings. I also found out we have a shed sized substation right at the end of my London road and apparently they are bad to live near?!
