Solar Generation Reduces when Tesla Battery is full.

I've noticed a dip in solar generation during the day and thought it may be due to cloud or temperature variations. However, today was a cloudless and mild day with constant temp when my 6.5kw panels dropped immediately from 5.2kw generation to 4.2kw at midday, when the sun was at its peak. I checked the Tesla app and this coincided with the battery reaching 100% capacity, hence the 4.2 kw was being exported at the time. I have a suspicion it's to do with the power grid I'm exporting to. To test ...
