PowerHome Solar partners with Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil to direct commercial


Five-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and Carolina Panthers standout Ryan Kalil had a chance to showcase his talents seated from a director’s chair in November. Local solar energy provider PowerHome Solar gave him that opportunity, allowing him to call the shots for PowerHome’s commercial that starred comedian Ryan O’Flanagan and included a number of Kalil’s Panthers teammates.

Kalil was initially approached to star in the commercial touting the benefits of installing solar panels at one’s home, but instead pitched the idea to PowerHome CEO Jayson Waller of being behind the camera and involving O’Flanagan and others to assemble a memorable spot.

“Jayson gave me a couple minutes to give him my vision of what it was, I promised him it would be funny, and he OK’d it,” Kalil said. “He’s been a great partner to work with and really kind of gave me free rein to put it all together, even to the point where he even let me bring out my own (director of photography) from (Los Angeles) which is Kevin Sarnoff, who is amazing. He brought my stress level way down coming out here to do this shoot.”

Panthers players involved in the shoot included Luke KuechlyCurtis SamuelGreg Van Roten and Marshall Newhouse.

As part of a partnership with the Panthers, PowerHome Solar is helping the NFL franchise ‘go green’ to maximize energy efficiency, reduce energy costs, and minimize their carbon footprint with renewable energy solutions and the installation of solar panels at Bank of America Stadium in the coming weeks.

PowerHome Solar & Roofing, headquartered in North Carolina, is one of the fastest growing American companies to specialize in solar energy and roofing services.  The company will assist the professional football franchise with energy sustainability goals and responsible energy practices as part of the organization’s green initiative.  PowerHome Solar also will help Panthers fans go green by offering easy, affordable clean energy solutions through promotions, giveaways, and education on solar power and energy sustainability this season.

“We are so proud to be partnering with the Panthers on this green initiative in our home state,” Waller said. “Together, we’ll be building a movement that will not only help the organization address sustainability and environmental challenges for future generations of Panthers players and fans, it will encourage today’s fans to think about ways they can go green for the greater good of North Carolina and our planet.”
