One thing that might pose a problem is the go-it-alone approach to power distribution by the Great State Of Texas. The Texas power grid is almost completely isolated from the rest of the country, partly as a result of geography, partly in order to avoid federal regulation, and partly because of a general attitude in the state that there is a good chance that Texas may eventually "regain" her independence from the U.S.

Any large-scale interconnection to the ERCOT grid will require some political craftsmanship, to say the least...
