Is there a way to turn off the Tariff Report in the E+ output file? It seems like its automatically included if you use Tariffs. I'd like to clean up my output file to include only a few items.Thanks!

The Economics Results Summary Report and the Tariff report appear if one or more UtilityCost:Tariff objects are in the file.

If you specify a text -based output file (not html), you can clean it up yourself. Formatting is another matter.

Thanks everyone. I think its weird that you can flag all the other summary reports but this one just shows up automatically.

It seemed logical to me when I programmed it. When would you want the economics calculations done but no reporting of them?

Thanks Jason. I was working to clean up an output file for LEED submission. They only ask for a few output reports: ABUPS, System Summary, Input Verification, and Economics Summary.

I posted a new issue to add control of the Tariff report on the EnergyPlus github issues list:

With the number of issues that are open, it is not clear when this will be addressed.
