Is there a kWh meter built into the car?

Is there a meter somewhere in one of the menus that shows the amount of kWh the car used during the most recent charging session? I'm trying to figure out an easy way to track my energy usage and reimburse my homeowner's association without the need for an actual meter on the circuit which apparently is quite costly to install.

While the car didn't show it directly, the website used to allow you to download this data from OnStar. I believe it listed each charging session and kWh used. Unfortunately, with the latest website revision, they simplified the UI and removed the ability to download any data.

The JuicePlug might be able to do what you're attempting, once it comes out.

You might also call the GM Connections Center at (877) 558-8352 and ask them to bring back the ability to download charging data from the website. I doubt it will do any good, but maybe they'll at least realize people still want access to this data.

Good luck! If you come up with an easy solution, be sure to post about what you did.
