A £13 million investment in a carbon-friendly heating project has been described as an “amazing thing” for the region at a Wirral Council committee meeting.
The money, part of the Merseyside Pension Fund, will help provide low-carbon heat for 10,000 homes in Liverpool by the time the scheme is completed.
Green Party councillor Pat Cleary, chair of the pensions committee, said: “The district heating project is quite an amazing thing. It might look like just a bunch of pipes, [but] when you see it on the ground it is a very significant operation.
“Members will be aware that this is something I have been very keen for the fund to bring forward. Local investments we make as a fund help to improve our local area.
