We calculate the event rates induced by high-intensity radioactive sources of \(\nu_e\) (\(^{51}\)Cr) and of \(\bar{\nu}_e\) (\(^{90}\)Sr), to be located near the BOREXINO detector. Calculations are performed both in the standard case and assuming non-standard properties of neutrinos, including flavor oscillations, neutrino electromagnetic interactions, and deviations from the standard vector and axial couplings in the \(\nu_e\)-e interaction. It is shown that, in some cases, the current limits on non-standard neutrino properties can be significantly improved.
