I plan to go off-grid at some point in the enearer future. By then I will have a MS and this is where the dynamic charging would come in handy.
As the output of the solar power system varies second by second it would be ideal if the ampage of the loading would be adjusted to pull just as much as the solar array produces. The problem with a fixed loading flow would be that either too much or too little would be pulled from the system and that the battry bank of the house would have to ballance the loading.
So ideal would be a feature where the house system could be linked with the Tesla app or some other form of communication to adjust second by second the load pulled into the MS to ballance the off grid system.
I know the fewest people are looking to go off-grid. But nevertheless even with a future grid that is smart and changes prices for power on an hourly or half-hourly basis this would make sense to minimize the cost of charging.
