First off-grid solar-powered EV charger deployed in Puerto Rico in wake of rising natural disasters

Beam’s EV ARC chargers can generate and store their own electricity by harnessing renewable energy from the sun. The charging infrastructure is designed to handle extreme weather with flood-proof capabilities up to 9.5 feet and wind resistance of 125 mph.
I wonder how long this takes to charge. I assume it charges up a portable battery over time and then uses that to charge a vehicle. So how long does it take to charge up the battery from the solar panels? I imagine it must take a long time.
Still really awesome though. I love seeing stuff like this.
