which reports to use for annual utility cost comparison?

I am trying to find the report that gives me the total annual utility cost
for my desiign with all the parametric runs (improvements) included.
I have rotated the azimuth on the baseline & get 4 nice annual costs on the
"Annual Utility Bills by Rate" Comparison Report. I can average these.
I am trying to get the same metric for my design - who's improvements are
built up of 8 parametric runs. The "Annual Utility Bills by Rate" lists each
run separately - I need the annual cost based on a cummulative look at all
the improvements.

The eQuest Training Workbook contains the attached summary of reports.
You can look to see if it has what you need.

When you do parametric runs in eQuest a .csv file is generated that
includes the end-use energy consumption and energy cost data for each
parametric run. This data is taken from various DOE22 reports (i.e.
PS-E, ES-E, etc). The file is called parms.csv and I am pretty sure the
project name is also included in the name of the parms.csv file. Its a
good file to use for data post-processing.
