is there a way I can get the hourly data for electricity consumption for one day through OpenStudio?

Are you running your simulation for one day, if not then this can be done from Simulation setting tab. If yes, then you should be able to output hourly variables from Output Variable tab.

Please see my answer below, this will output hourly values of the requested variable no matter whether you are running it for one day or one year.

There may be faster ways to do this, but I made a measure to export hourly .csv data for meters and variables.

Add the AddMeter measure to your model: image description

Then add the ExportMetertoCSV measure: image description

Once you run the model, a .csv file will be available in the run -> UserScript -> directory for that measure: image description

Are you looking in the measure directory for the EnergyPlus run directory? Check: Make sure (1) the meter is in your model. The name should be just Electricity:Facility.
(2) the ExportMetertoCSV measure has the same name. Also make sure this is the OutputMeter, NOT OutputVariable. (3) The csv is in the model folder -> run -> #-UserScript-# directory, NOT the measure directory.

Please see the figure below. You have to select the variable that you are interested in (on the left-hand side) and then the reporting granularity (on the right-hand side). Reporting
