I know how to charge a creeper by summoning lightning on top of it:

Screenshot of a charged creeper.

I've reviewed the vanilla behavior for the creeper, and it is easy to see how a creeper becomes charged:

"minecraft:damage_sensor": {
  "triggers": {
    "on_damage": {
      "filters": { "test": "is_family", "subject": "other", "value": "lightning"
      "event": "minecraft:become_charged"
    "deals_damage": false

However, I've been unable to locate anything similar to the minecraft:become_charged event, in order to effectively un-charge it.

Is it possible to un-charge a creeper?

    I also just did some research on it, came to the same conclusion you did, that the only event for it is "become_charged". I won't leave this as an answer as I am not sure how to do it in Bedrock, but a possible solution is just to swap out this creeper with another one that is uncharged. Edit: This question references some of the same language, this may not be possible in Bedrock like it is in Java.

You could pretty easily:

execute @e[type=creeper,tag="Creepers To Change"] ~ ~ ~ summon creeper
tp @e[type=creeper,tag="Creepers To Change"] ~ -100 ~
kill @e[type=creeper,tag="Creepers To Change"]

and that would swap them out. Beware they won't have the same names or tags. Swap out the tag="Creepers To Change" for any selector arguments of your choice.
