Others will know the best kind of shielding if it’s possible to shield from such close range, but with living so near it is surely a health hazard. What symptoms have you got? I’d go to my nearest environmental health office, tell them your symptoms and concerns and try to get them to check it all out with all the proper meters etc, and to give you free shielding. They’ll probably try and pass you around between energy company, landlord, environment agency, local council etc. But this surely must be an environmental health hazard with you at the sharp end of it, so something should be done. Good luck.

Hi Claire, before looking at specifics of shielding I think it would be wise to take some measurements of power frequency electric and magnetic fields, for which you would need to buy or hire the appropriate meters. If you establish that there is a problem you would then be in a position to look at screening options. (Warning – screening magnetic fields is virtually impossible, but if there are high magnetic fields then you could take this up with the utility company.) I have measured in the vicinity of substations and actually found no cause for concern – but each situation may different.
