Home Improvement Market Sees Surge During Pandemic

Financialnewsmedia.com Market Commentary

PALM BEACH,  Fla., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Analysts expect home improvement spending to reach $439.9 billion in 2020 – In the time of a global pandemic, there is indeed no place like home. As millions of Americans practice social distancing while working and learning remotely, the home has become the focal point of our lives. The desire to make residences safer, more comfortable and more enjoyable has led to a home improvement boom.   Mentioned in today’s commentary includes:  NeoVolta (OTCQB: NEOV), Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), Home Depot (NYSE: HD) and Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW).

The Home Improvement Research Institute predicts Americans will spend $439.9 billion on home improvement products in 2020. The online home remodeling platform Houzz reports that demand for kitchen and bath remodeling was up 40% year over date in June 2020, while home additions increased 52% and fencing projects jumped 166%. Pool and hot tub installations are seeing a wave of strong demand across the country. 

Home renewable energy is also seeing a surge as storage batteries are being installed in more households. According to the U.S. Energy Storage Monitor, the energy storage industry saw record-breaking deployments during the second quarter of 2020, and rapid expansion is expected to continue. A total of 168 MW and 288 MWh of energy storage was deployed in the quarter, second only to Q4 2019 as the highest on record, according to the joint report by Wood Mackenzie and the U.S. Energy Storage Association.

With Americans nesting like never before, four of the companies active in-home improvement are: NeoVolta (NEOV), Tesla (TSLA), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe’s (LOW).

NeoVolta (OTCQB: NEOV) – San Diego based NeoVolta, whose stock is trading around $4 per share, is the only pure-play energy storage company on this list. Recently NeoVolta announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Nevada-based PMP Energy. In exchange for making minimum purchases of up to $15 million, PMP Energy can secure specific geographic exclusivities for distribution over the three-year term of the agreement.

NeoVolta has significantly expanded its distribution network in recent months. In addition to Southern California, installations are now available in Northern California and Nevada. The company has doubled its production in 2020 and plans to quadruple capacity by the end of this year. NeoVolta’s NV14 storage system was named one of Solar Power World’s Top Solar Storage Products of 2019.

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) – Tesla, the carmaker whose stock is trading about $415 per share, is also a major player in home energy storage.

The Powerwall can be added to a system with a backup generator connected through an external automatic transfer switch (ATS) or manual transfer switch (MTS). Because the Powerwall and generator are not directly integrated, the Powerwall cannot

Market Garden Brewery kicks off 5-day Pumpkin Beer Fest

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Market Garden Brewery’s ninth annual Pumpkin Beer Fest is under way – with a few twists thanks to Covid, of course.

Instead of one day, it’s a week, co-owner Sam McNulty said. The previous fests were held over one day. But to disburse crowds the brewery decided to space this year’s fest over five days, running today through Sunday, Oct. 11.

“With distancing and all the Covid protocols, instead of having one packed festival evening, it’s the entire week,” he said.

On tap:

• Franklin Castle Pumpkin Spice Ale

• Magis Cider with a pumpkin-spice rim

• Magis Peary Cider

• Mulled Magis Cider cocktail (“for those cooler nights around the fireplace,” McNulty said.)

• Market Garden fall seasonal cocktail line-up. He said the brewery is down to its last few kegs of Summer Shandy, so “we’re bridging summer and fall” by concocting cocktails with it.

The brewery launched Magis Cider a year ago.

Also, a surprise guest tap will be poured daily.

“Between the pumpkin beers and the pumpkin cocktails we’re really tripling down the autumnal (flavors) to round things out,” he said.

Chef Andrew Bower is preparing dishes to pair with the seasonal drinks, McNulty said, including:

• Homemade pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream

• Pork belly and pumpkin pizza with black garlic miso, fresh sage and tamari peanuts

• Beet and carrot salad with spiced barley and Boss Amber Lager vinaigrette

McNulty and brewer Andy Tveekrem always get in the spirit of the event. Hay bales and pumpkins for carving were dropped off at the brewpub today.

Market Garden is at 1947 W. 25th St.

The pandemic has altered normal operations, but the venue is holding outdoor-only markets each Saturday with plans to continue through October.

“The market is an inclusive place where people can be themselves, relax and get to know the people who grow, raise and prepare their food,” Suda said.

If you haven’t visited the market, our Daytonian of the Week will tell you why this downtown Dayton gem is special.

I was born and raised in Spokane, Wash. After spending a few years in both Philadelphia, PA and Denver, CO, my husband Marc and I moved our family to Dayton 16 years ago this month. We enjoyed raising our two sons, Tyme and Zhen, and helping Marc’s ailing mother in the same neighborhood Marc grew up in, Five Oaks.

My work background has mostly been connected to small, family owned retail businesses. Prior to moving to Dayton, most of that experience was artisan jewelry related, but when I moved to Dayton, I was able to combine my retail experience with my interest in health and wellness. The first opportunity to do so, came when I started working at and eventually managing a local health food store. After being there ten years, as the owner put it, “it was time for a change”. I went back to school, finishing my liberal studies degree at Antioch Midwest University with a focus on integrated health and wellness.

While at Antioch, the opportunity to work for Five Rivers MetroParks (something I’d wanted to do since moving to Dayton) presented itself with the 2nd Street Market coordinator position. Gratefully, I was hired and enjoyed working and learning the ropes with my predecessor, Jimmy Harless, for two years. When Jimmy announced his retirement, I applied and took over as market manager in December of 2018.

For those who may not be familiar, what is the 2nd Street Market?

The 2nd Street Market is a year-round public market located in a historical freight depot in downtown Dayton. It is home to a variety of farmers, specialty food, prepared food and artisan vendors providing a unique shopping experience. Normally it is a vibrant community gathering space that features local musicians and other family-friendly programming. You can purchase everything you need to prepare healthy, delicious meals, as well as unique handcrafted gifts and delicious prepared foods.
