Power plants did EVERYTHING they could to stay on line. The issue with Uri was systemic, from renewables and batteries that had issues to gas compressor stations that where NOT listed as critical infrastructure.

we came very close during Uri to a society changing event, the lesson should be (IMHO) more base load is needed to keep ERCOT stable at peak load and during major weather events!
