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.

Unless it has been removed for gen2, there is a PID available over OBD - last charge Wh. It appears to be total energy that has gone through the charger during last charge event. Includes charging losses - reads about 12k for a ~10.5kWh gen1 charge. Note it resets upon full charge and initiating a new charge - so doing a full charge overnight and a remote start in the morning may erase it and only count the remote start energy.
