Hi all,

We currently looking at new builds and have been to a few sites, we looked at the plans for a plot we could be interested in, all seems good corner plot, open green area to side, but in front of the house of the other side of the road about 15 to 18 meters away we have a mini sub station that looks like a mini garage.

My question is are these dangerous to health like the large pylons etc any electricians with info on this that could help me out would be much appriciated thanks.

EDIT just added a picture in Substation album so you can see what i mean its took from a site up the road icon_wink.gif

No danger at all. If there was they would not be allowed to site them where they do. Any 'potential' EM risks are screened. Only danger with a sub-station is if you enter it.

Stand under overhead lines at 400kV with a fluorescent tube, one end in the ground. Then tell me theres no danger! icon_wink.gif

You'll get a far higher emf from the circuits in your house than the substation over the road.
