PGE estimates 25% of peak demand will be met by distributed resources by 2030. Do you agree?

I was recently reading Portland General Electric's release about its future generation mix, and the following quote caught my eye:
By 2030, PGE estimates as much as 25% of the power needed on the hottest and coldest of days could come from customers and distributed energy resources (DERs), such as solar panels, batteries, and electric vehicles.
Do you think that's a realistic timeframe and expectation? Is your utility operating under similar expectations-- or even more aggressive estimates on distributed generation / storage? Or do you see central generation as continuing to play it's dominant role through the end of the decade?
