Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not so sure about your hypothesis as regards the future.  There are many plans to link the Texas grid, and rightly so.  whther they happen or not???

special corridors transmitting wind in Texas are already under construction planning.

I believe that the Texas electric grid is almost entirely disconnected from the rest of the U.S., and that the regulations are set up to maintain that situation. There are a lot of projects WITHIN Texas to improve their system, but I have not heard of a change in attitude that would help other states.

Texas gets most of its power from natural gas, but is actively working to build a substantial wind infrastructure.
