Generally speaking, no... you should not expect any interference.  I have extensive use of  wireless from UHF to 30 GHz microwave near high voltage transmission lines without any problems.  It does raise the noise floor, so the S/N radio of your path needs to be watched, but it's not something I would expect to cause you problems.

I would agree with Dennis. BUT i would use an analyzer to double check.
