Should I go with ReAmped Energy or Origin?

Chances are, you’re already with Origin. So, the better question might be, should you switch to ReAmped Energy? This is seriously a David versus Goliath type situation, so you’ll first have to decide whether you prefer the perceived safety offered by the big guy, or take a shot in the dark with the smaller challenger.

ReAmped may be new to the party, but it brings with it budget prices that are hard to ignore. For tech-savvy people who’d rather manage their energy accounts online, ReAmped may be a good fit, offering ‘fast’ online service as a priority. For lovers of flexibility and over the phone service, however, Origin’s pick-and-choose plans could be the better fit. Origin is also far from the most expensive retailer around, so this isn’t all about the cheapest prices.
