Unlike the radiation released during the nuclear explosion, EMP is not particularly dangerous to people.
Since EMP travels line of sight it can cover a very large area if the nuclear detonation occurs high in the atmosphere.
Though the EMP magnitude diminishes with distance, it may still be strong enough at thousands of miles to fry most microelectronics. This makes the nuclear EMP a near perfect weapon for a terrorist, rather than a conventional military force. Aside from nuclear weapons there are EMP-generating devices called “explosively pumped flux compression generators.” These devices use a combination of electromagnetic physics to generate large pulses of electromagnetic energy.
Now that you have all your devices protected when the terrorist EMP event strikes you’ll be ready. Bottom line: The power is out and it’s going to stay out for a very long time (maybe even years). EMP Diaster Prep Option 2 – Store a complete, disassembled home electrical power generation system inside very large Faraday Cages. However, if you do end up going with EMP Preparedness Option #2, you’d better be prepared to defend it. By the way, you EMP disaster prep Option #2 guys, I would wait until long after the attack before assembling your system. An EMP blast from a single nuclear device at 20 miles altitude will cover a large portion of the US with EMP. Even the US Government admits as many 9 of 10 Americans could die within one year of a crippling EMP attack on our homeland. There are simply too many people, and too few with survival skills, for a majority of our nation to survive with no electrical power for a year.
The skills our great-great grandparents called everyday life we now call survival and prepping. Let’s just say that your solar panels do survive and EMP attack and only your inverter fries. However, the amount of damage any device or appliance or electrical system takes is dependent on how large the EMP strike is and how close you are to it. The reports by these experts are very clear in their predictions of the scope of destruction in the aftermath of an EMP attack. It is projected that resumption of the power supply couldn’t even start for several months to a year. What the reports don’t describe (and this is the crux of the whole matter for us) is the cold, dark world of survival facing a population of 350,000,000 starving citizens.
Even the most ardent The End of the World As We Know It TEOTWAWKI preppers may be ill-prepared for the EMP aftermath. Assuming that the chance of survival for non-preppers is slim to none, there are steps that can be taken ahead of time that can improve survivability for resourceful preppers.
Some would consider a quick death by the direct hit of an incinerating, nuclear bomb blast to be more preferable and, ironically, more humane than living in the aftermath of the more sinister EMP blast.

However, and some of the engineers out there can correct me, if your equipment is not hooked up to electricity it will or may survive.
The real bad thing is that most EMP events are the preemptory event of a Nuclear explosion. An EMP is transmitted through air; any and ALL items with a PN junction will be fused, if not protected by a Faraday cage. Thanks Halmic, even though I work with this stuff the engineers explanation is indepth, scary, and serious and of course doesn’t even get into the Nuke effects and ionizing the Van Allen belts etc.
Unless the solar panels are shielded PRIOR to the event, they will be fried to a nice, even, crispy lump of congealed silicon.
Life will never be the same after an EMP, which is why you need to take immediate action towards a survival plan.In an ElectroMagnetic Pulse, mankind will be trapped by the reliance on technology. We're happy to provide guidance on how survive and EMP attack is possible, by providing dozens of preparedness tips.First, we'll show you the things to do immediately following an EMP, then we'll tell you the steps you can take now to prepare for the years following the catastrophe, which will surely devastate mankind. Study the rules of survival psychology and have an immediate plan of action following an EMP.
Going solar or using wind power are both admirable goals of any prepper, but an EMP is an overheating of microchips and components, which are present in solar equipment as well any electrical equipment. This might be stating the obvious, but in the event of an EMP, things will not be the same, no matter how great your generator is. Billionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer is warning investors – and more broadly, lawmakers and leaders – about the potential destructive power of an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, which could be triggered by solar events or artificially, via blasts in the atmosphere. Furthermore, in the event of an EMP strike, if your generator is not protected, it may not work no matter how much fuel you have stored. The world is a scary place when it’s dark, and most of us have forgotten how dark TRUE dark really is, due to light pollution and the proximity of neighbors. One EMP preparedness survival technique is simple EMP protection otherwise known as electrical shielding. Plan to revert to an 1860 agrarian society with the sort of survival skills our great-great-grandparents knew. Any good terrorist or even a state sponsored enemy threat will be smart enough to allow us to install our spare power system trying to bring things back online.
You need regular amounts of food and water resources to survive and you need to be able to defend these precious resources from others. It is also the consensus of all that an EMP burst centered 250 miles over the center of our country would virtually destroy the power infrastructure, knocking the USA back to the pre-electrical age.  The dirty little secret is that most EMP aftermath assessments, propagated by these experts, project a population survival rate of between 10% and 20%.
Even the prospect of hunger is enough to turn law abiding, conscientious people into contemptuous criminals. Unless there is at least a two to three year supply of provisions stockpiled into a well-equipped doomsday bunker, 35 feet below the surface, chances of survival are greatly diminished.
The cost and effort required for creating absolute invulnerability is prohibitive for most, however, each step can take survivability up a notch. Within a matter of weeks your home will become a target for looters and refugees.  Even the most fortified house can eventually be overrun.

Put a switch on the red cable of your car battery and turn it off every night and you may save your car.
God can and does provide, even for the sparrow, but I don’t see sparrows flying around waiting for God to drop worms and grain into its mouth.
All crops planted will be destroyed every partical of dust in the ground will be radiated to a toxic level. I and mine live in the willd and remote West coast of Tasmania, living pretty much off the grid with a wide, deep, fish laden river at my door step, rich pickings in game and natural edibles abounding, unlimited howling wind for my windmill and attached generator, 100kw of high effciiency solar array and 150 acres of rich, fertile soils, surrounded by centuries old State Forest and my own decades ago planted windbreaks of oak, jarrah, marri, karri and pine – and all well below the snowline. You'll know by the telltale signs of an EMP (cars do not operate, phones will not work, and all the lights are out).
An EMP would disable solar panels because of the diodes they contain, which control the flow. Develop a family plan.Talk with the kids about an EMP scenario and discuss a realistic plan of action on where to meet and have a contingency plan if the first location is not available.
Maybe people with lots of money to spare have ideas about how to keep their generators running forever.
However, if one were detonated at high altitude the EMP would travel outward crossing everything in its line of sight.
Evasion is the best of all survival tactics and it must be applied for at least 6 months to a year to allow for the thinning of the hungry throngs. Many appliances keep power to the computer boards that now operate them and cannot be turned off, an EMP event is going to get them. The WaterBob, pictured at the top of the page, is an excellent device to maximize water storage for an EMP, earthquake or other disaster. Plan a strategy for your car (in case you are in it when an EMP strikes).There are 90 microprocessors in a typical car, which means it will likely fail. An EMP is perhaps the most horrible of all catastrophic conditions in which preppers face, and yet there is always hope as a cornerstone of survival. Within 24 hours after an EMP, if not sooner, virtually every household in America will be without water. For example, if the EMP event happens and you are in the vicinity of merchants who have the power to negotiate, do what you can to get them to sell to you even though their electronic registers do not operate.
In the event of an EMP, do not immediately unplug or plug in your generator and light up the house!
However after reading the above information it appears that all of our attempts to provide for our families needs may be toast.
