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. They accept numeric values or yes if the exact rating is unknown. recommended when using simple tagging
plant:source The primary fuels used in this plant The aggregate of fuels used by individual generators within the plant. Multiple fuels should be separated by semicolons (;). recommended
