Changing The Culture

of Business

Business success is the result of making people's lives better. At 5, we are raising the bar for the deregulated energy industry while also changing the way business is done for all our stakeholders including clients, employees, vendors and suppliers.


Client Case Study

Irving Convention Center

The Irving Convention Center represents the future of meetings and events space complete with unique architecture, vertical design and interior finishes that create a new niche in the marketplace. By partnering with the team at 5, the client drastically reduced energy costs on their supply agreement, securing 50% of the load through a renewable energy purchase, while also uncovering new funding sources for an energy efficiency project and cutting additional demand side costs.
