There's no easy way to get tenant HVAC in a single variable.

Loop on all apartments (hint: spaceType.spaces.each), and add "Zone Package Terminal Heat Pump Electric Energy" for each apartment zone into the customDecrement Meter (or create an Output:Meter for that and include it into the CustomDecrement Meter).

Yes, it's going to potentially get really large. And yes, if you try to open it using the E+ IDF Editor, it's likely to crash and complain about too large number of fields, which can be fixed by editing the Energy+.idd and expand the number of extensible groups.

Loop on all apartments (hint: spaceType.spaces.each), find all PTHPs in the space and and add "Zone Packaged Terminal Heat Pump Electric Energy" for each apartment zone PTHP into the customDecrement Meter (or create an Output:Meter for that and include it into the CustomDecrement Meter).
