Default Solar Panels and CME

Hello All,

I'm about to put up some new solar panels in order to be a little bit more energy independent. I've heard the stories about Coronal Mass Ejections and did some research on the Carrington Events and previous CMEs. I understand if this does happen it will be absolutely devastating to the electrical grid because of the high-voltage transformers. I'm wondering if anyone has any information on whether this would have any effect on a lower-voltage solar panel system. Any input would be much appreciated.
