Energy Advisor



Paula Pacini

Paula Pacini brings the same level of enthusiasm and effort to her energy clients as she does to the students who join her group fitness classes at the local Jewish Community Center of Syracuse. Paula has always had a passion for helping others and empowering people to optimize their energy usage through comprehensive energy strategies and physical fitness.

In the early days of deregulation, Paula joined Direct Energy as an Account Manager. She went on to work in business development for Constellation Energy and Juice Energy before leaving the supplier side and working as a consultant for Reflective Energy Solutions. After a break from the industry, Paula found that the knowledge, tools, and culture at 5 were exactly what she was needing to help clients with every aspect of their energy spend. She came back into the industry without skipping a beat.

Today, Paula serves as an Energy Advisor for clients in New York State and beyond, providing advice on procurement, demand-side management, sustainability, and resiliency. Her passion to serve others and her diverse experiences allow her to serve as a value-add to each new business she helps.

Paula has a bachelor’s degree in Finance from Syracuse University, and she lives in Manlius, New York.
