Maximizing production by charging near the point of production

Dark green is the guerrilla system of ~50 panels which starts shutting down during periods of high production.  Today, I charged a car at 15 amps (3.6-3.8kw) from about 11 am until about 5pm.  The charge demand was from a point near the panels so the power the Curb associates with the guerrilla system was reduced by the 3.6-3.8kw. That demand lowered the voltage enough that I had few to no high voltage shutdowns.  The upper light green presents production of the roof top system which pegs out at about 5kw for near 5 hours.

The car received about 22 kwh of energy.  In the absence of that demand, some of that energy would have been lost to inverter high voltage shutdown.
