The article's author, L.M. Sixel, does a good job of explaining Texas' power market to noobz (I've read other stories by her), but as I've said in the past, I think her assumptions about the near-term impact of batteries on the state's energy portfolio are sanguine. Storage is puny at the moment: 100 megawatts. Of course that number will go up, but not necessarily quickly. What’s more, I don’t think such commentators truly acknowledge the reality of supply demand mismatch even with the best battery systems at this point.
