ReAmped Energy review: Our verdict

As far as plans go, ReAmped Energy is generally on the cheaper end of the price spectrum. Its power plans range from 29% less to 7% more than the reference price.

Keep in mind ReAmped doesn't sell gas plans, so you won't be able to bundle your utilities together.

Here are some of the benefits of signing up with ReAmped Energy:

  • You can send ReAmped a recent power bill via live chat or email and get a quick comparison on what you can save
  • Plans have very few complicated features compared to many other providers' market offers
  • Option to buy GreenPower to offset carbon emissions for an extra fee
  • $50 referral bonus for both parties when you refer a friend to sign up.

What's the catch?

  • The ReAmped Advance plan is billed fortnightly and only works with direct debit. You will be charged a set amount based on an estimate of your usage - actual usage will be adjusted for later
  • There is no over-the-phone customer support, which could be frustrating for some customers
  • Prices and available plans vary widely between states - you may not be able to get the cheapest overall price

Fortunately, ReAmped doesn't sell any plans with a lock-in contract, so you're able to change providers whenever you like.

Where is ReAmped Energy available?

ReAmped Energy is an independent energy provider that sells electricity plans in NSW, QLD, VIC, SA, and the ACT. At least some of its customer service team is based locally in Brisbane.

Does ReAmped Energy offer solar plans?

ReAmped has dedicated solar plans available for residents of NSW, QLD, SA, and the ACT. These come with higher feed-in tariffs than the rest of its plans.

While solar customers may sign up to any plan they want, ReAmped Energy does not assist with or provide solar panel installation.

  • Watch out for: ReAmped's dedicated solar plans have high feed-in tariffs, but also have higher usage and supply rates. They might not be the best choice depending on your usage habits - as a solar customer, you can choose between a dedicated solar plan or any of ReAmped's other plans.

What feed-in tariffs can I expect?

ReAmped's feed-in tariffs are strong in NSW, QLD, SA, and the ACT on its dedicated solar plans, but fall by around 50% or more on its other plans. Also keep in mind Victorian residents do not have access to a dedicated solar plan.

  • NSW, ACT, SA: 9 c/kWh on the ReAmped Solar plan; 2-5c/kWh on the rest
  • VIC: 6.7c/kWh
  • QLD: 8 c/kWh on the ReAmped Solar plan; 2-5c/kWh on the rest

How green is ReAmped Energy?

Green Electricity Guide Rating: 3/5

With ReAmped, you're able to offset some or all of your power's carbon emissions by purchasing GreenPower for an extra fee per unit of energy used.

With GreenPower you might pay:

  • $11.25 per quarter - 25% GreenPower (0.9 c/kWh)
  • $22.50 per quarter - 50% GreenPower (1.8 c/kWh)
  • $33.75 per quarter - 75% GreenPower (2.7 c/kWh)
  • $45.00 per quarter - 100% GreenPower (3.6 c/kWh)

Note: 5,000 kWh was used as an average annual power consumption figure based on data from the 2020 Residential energy consumption benchmarks report for the AER. Power consumption varies by state and household size.

Important notes: The estimated price we show by default is based on a single rate tariff. On your bill this might be known as a "peak tariff", "peak only" or an "anytime tariff". There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:

  • Single rate with a controlled load
  • Time of use
  • Time of use with a controlled load

The price estimate should not be used as an official quote, but an indication of what your costs may be on the plan. It varies based on whether you provide us with your bill details. You can learn more here.
