Solar install on asbestos roof.

    I'm looking into install 10-12KWp Solar PV System for a commercial building in Dublin with batteries. The building is from the late 70's / early 80's I believe. So I think there is a strong possibility there is asbestos in the roof.

    Are there any reputable installers working with asbestos roofs.

    I'm pretty sure noone will touch that roof apart from removals guys

    Yea I'm getting that impression too.

    The majority of older industrial buildings around the country have no hope of solar until someone takes a different attitude. The tools to do the job safely are out there, but there are easier jobs out there for sure. A lot of low-hanging fruit in Ireland remaining.
