But, instead of batteries, they could take power from overhead lines.

The overhead power lines are there so that you can firstly avoid the cost of having to transport the batteries and secondly avoid the energy losses associated with charging and discharging batteries, because once you 'fix' the location of the batteries, it is relatively simple to remove them totally from the energy supply chain.
