Wall charger consuming >10KW daily when not in use
It took me about 7 months to identify the culprit of why my electricity bill skyrocketed after I purchased the Model X earlier this year. My home electricity consumption ranged between 300-400KW before the car arrived, it shot up to 900-1300 KW when I used to charge the car 2-3 times a month in my garage. My electricity bill went from $50-75 a month to high $200 range, I felt the promise of electric car was a lie. So last month I solely used superchargers, and my electric consumption went down to 750KW. Something was still not adding up. So I thought hard about all things that had changed in my household, and unplugged the wall charger from the outlet, observed for 2 weeks, and my daily conservation went down to 10-12 KW, getting back to my previous 300-400KW a month range. This is completely mind boggling, and no laws of physics seem to be able to explain it. Anyone had similar observations?
