Just purchased a 2014 (june) Model S 85. We live off grid, and want to charge while the sun shines. Installed a TESLA wall charger, and we have limited the car to 24A.
It was charging at the full 24Amps, (17 miles/hour), but it has dropped down to around 8 miles and 16 Amps. The panels are producing 11 KW, and our set of house batteries is at 90%, so there is plenty of power available.
Is it normal to have it drop down when it gets hot? Currently parked outside while we get garage organized. Car says interior temp is 103F.
