    Electrons have different amounts of energy depending on which orbital they are in.

    Oh no! I'm not sure how I misread this, but the answer should have been: "An electron has the same amount of energy in all orbitals." The energy of an electron depends on which orbital it is in - higher up orbitals equal more energy.
