I'm working on a software program to optimize the use of my solar array when charging my Model S. In a nutshell, the software will only permit charging of the car if it is sufficiently sunny outside. On party cloudy days, the charging might turn on and off several times over the course of the day. Any idea if frequent switching on and off of charging is detrimental to the battery or the car generally? Note that the car charges via a Tesla wall charger and the program turns charging on/off via API calls (not just a hard power on/off).
