Electric and Magnetic Fields

Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF)

Concerns about exposure to EMF and the potential for human health effects are frequently expressed during the Commission's review process for electric utility construction projects.  Because of this concern, Commission staff  have been actively monitoring research on EMF and its potential for causing human health effects for over 20 years.  Consideration of EMF exposure is a regular part of the Commission staff's review process for electric utility construction cases. 

For more information about EMF, the potential for health effects, and how the Commission considers EMF in construction cases refer to the PDF file below.
