How do magnets in the presence of photovoltaics or DC wire change DC current?

I'm thinking of using some rare-earth magnets to hold tools & such near some of my panels.


We're well aware that DC, when wrapped correctly around an iron nail, produces an electromagnet. That effect is what I'm finding, almost exclusively, when searching for "strong magnets effect on electricity" and many similar search terms.

My question is different.

I propose two cases:

If I have in one case, a solar panel,

or in the second case, a dc carrying wire,

and introduce a sufficiently strong magnetic field to the scene, will I temporarily or permanently change the flow of electricity or the solar panel's effectiveness?

Will the presence of strong magnetic fields permanently damage solar panels? (Crush / impact damage aside)
