St. Lucy should no longer be considered a parish behind God’s back but a leading parish in innovation in Barbados.

During a Pie Corner, St. Lucy spot meeting, Minister of Housing and Democratic Labour Party (DLP) for St. Lucy, Denis Kellman said last night, Wednesday, May 16, that he realized the parish was really a blessed place to live.

As he spoke about renewable energy Kellman said he believed it was possible for Barbados to transition to 100 percent renewable energy.

“They keep telling me about 2030 and all of that foolishness. I keep telling them that by 2030 if we follow the paths right we will be producing more than 29 percent. Tonight we are producing 25 percent,” he said. And out of that 25 percent Kellman said that the parish of his constituency was currently producing more than 10 percent.

He pinpointed the project "right down at Trents and that is not all. Right here at the Bough, we will be producing another 10 percent and that 10 plus 10 will be 20 and right here at Lowlands there is provision for a Solar Farm right here too,” he said.

He said that all of the blackbelly meat was also being produced in St. Lucy.

“This is really a blessed parish. Why would you spoil this parish by giving it to somebody who does not understand how to produce in a parish?” he questioned hinting at the opposition Barbados Labour Party (BLP) candidate Peter Phillips.

“We lead in poultry and [St. Lucy] has one of the first processing plants in Barbados. We were growing so many chickens that we decided to set up our own feed plant - all because of St. Lucy,” he added.

“That is why they realize that in St. Lucy we lead. We will always be forward and we will never be backwards. We are not backwards people and we don’t do anything backwards. We are always forward.”
