Take care when choosing the source. For example, a power generator that takes waste as its primary fuel, turns it into biogas and then burns the biogas should be tagged with generator:source=waste. If, however, this generator takes shipments of biogas that were processed from waste elsewhere (or from an other intermediate generator), then it should be tagged with generator:source=biogas.
