Where can I find the updated information on the utility tariff for energy plus because I checked the UtilityTariffObjects under MacroDataSets and all prices are from 2003-2005.

In most cases, you will probably need to create the EnergyPlus description based on the latest tariff information from the utility. Often the structure of the tariff does not change over time but the values used in the tariff do so you might be able to use an old EnergyPlus tariff description for a utility and just update the numbers.

There is no direct connection to EnergyPlus, but a great resource for utility tariffs can be found at: http://en.openei.org/apps/USURDB/
