These details look fantastic, but! Has anyone like at the amortised capital costs of the storage plus the costs of supply, the real full cost of supply for the back up, that is used once per week only if at all?

Great idea. All new homes should be buil to be solar passive with double glazing, solar panels and battery storage. By community combining the infrastructure, the "unit" costs will be reduced dramatically. Also the environment will benefit as well.
