I have created the UtilityCost object based on the below rates. I wanted to use peakEnergy, midPeakEnergy and offPeakEnergy variables for aggregating the energy charges. For the ECA 4/kWh will variable totalEnergy =(peakEnergy+midPeakEnergy+offPeakEnergy)?

Similarly, I am want to use -

peakDemand= High Peak hours
midPeakDemand= Low Peak hours
offPeakDemand = Base hours
totalDemand= Facilities Charges

The totalEnergy economic tariff variable should represent the entire amount of energy, during each month, for the facility assuming that the Output Meter Name field is Electricity:Facility. If you are using the Time of Use Period Schedule Name field to define different time of use periods, than the sum of each period (peakEnergy + shoulderEnergy + offPeakEnergy + midPeakEnergy) should be the same as the totalEnergy.
