My house runs completely on solar panels and I’ve heard that an EMP weapon “Electro Magnetic pulse” would fry them making them useless. I’ve also heard talk of possibly protecting electronics underground, is this possible? and if so how deep would you have to go? Naturally what’s on your roof would be toasted so what’s underground might be a large supply of solar cells packed away for panel construction later after the threat was gone. Of course if you’re hit again with another EMP you’re screwed right?
Also curious about the effects of an EMP on a wind generator that uses a permanent magnet alternator. I guess if the EMP magnetism was strong enough it could over heat and burn up the wire coils, not really sure of the effect on the permanent magnets.
I’ve read where it can actually magnetize an engine to the point it won’t even move. What steps can we take for our homes to prepare in case of an attack of this sort ?
