No, none of the rates in the Xcel Energy Tariffs Measure use the UtilityCost:Charge:Block object. If you want to add that, I'd suggest the following approach:

  1. Copy the Xcel Tariff Measure through OS App or PAT
  2. Copy one of the rate IDFs inside the /resources directory and modify it to reflect the rates you want using the correct EnergyPlus objects.
  3. Add the name of that new IDFto the choice inputs in the measure.rb file
  4. Run the Measure. If it fails, you may need to modify the measure.rb file to import the additional types of EnergyPlus objects that aren't yet being imported. The patterns for adding different types of objects are on lines 98-114.
