Try this: Meter:Custom,RefrigLighting,Electricity,Nameofcasefromobject,NameofvariablefromRDDfile; Output:Meter,RefrigLighting,Hourly;

Note: you'll need to determine the "Nameofcasefromobject" and "NameofvariablefromRDDfile" by referencing the IDF and RDD files.

I think you can accumulate ALL such values by using the "star / asterisk" wild card: Meter:Custom,RefrigLighting,Electricity,*,NameofvariablefromRDDfile; Output:Meter,RefrigLighting,Hourly;

I'm a rookie at EnergyPlus, so bear with me. Where does this statement go and exactly where will I see the results? I've been trying to use the "Add Output Variable" Open Studio measure and I can't find any results or errors.
