The source of the energy generated by a power plant is tagged with plant:source=*.

A power=plant is tagged as a area around the power plant perimeter (usually bordered by fence). We may use the following attributes:

Key Value Comment Recommendation

plant:output Rated output of the facility The rated output of the whole facility often available in operator public documentation. The tagging is consistent with generator:output=*: a co-generation plant would have for example plant:output:electricity=* and plant:output:steam=* keys.
