Quick recap so electrolysis electrical energy is converted into chemical energy?

Yes, electrolysis takes place in an electrolytic cell where electrical energy is converted into chemical energy.

Electrolysis uses an electric current, from an outside source, in order to produce a non-spontaneous reaction (where G > 0)

Electrolysis takes an electric current to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction.

Electrolysis uses a current supplied by an external power source to force oxidation and reduction for a non-spontaneous reaction.
