A way following the path of a power line.

How to Map

ElementWay.png

Draw a way and add the power=line to it. You can add additional values like voltage=*, cables=*, wires=* and operator=* as well. The towers that support the power line can be mapped using power=tower. For small power lines using poles (power=pole) it is suggested to use power=minor_line instead. It is not necessary to tag power lines with a layer=* unless two lines cross over each other.
