I am currently working on implementing meters and custom meters in my OpenStudio model via the BCL reporting measures "Add Meter" and "Custom Meter", respectively.

However, I cannot figure out how to implement the cumulative-style meters?

Did you try the setCumulative method?

@macumber I have not seen this, and do not know how to implement this. Could you please explain? I have only been using the BCL (Reporting, QAQC) Measures

It would have to be be added to the measure source code. You could try it by modifying the measure source codeor you could post an enhancement request issue at Modifying measures is not that hard, the measure writing guide is a good reference.
