Yes. A solar array for a home about that distance from my SteppIR wipes
out 6M in that direction when the sun shines (raises noise floor by 10
dB), and makes a mess on some of the higher HF bands. I only hear it
when the sun is shining, which suggests that the source is the charge
If you search my street address on Google Earth you can see my SteppIR
as a small almost horizontal bar roughly 100 ft north of the house, and
part of the solar array at about 110 degrees az.

Depending on the system, any bands can be affected.
BTW -- noise cancellation doesn't work on sources that are large as a
fraction of a wavelength, especially if the source is distributed.
