Transformer for distributing

Which building-tag is to use, if the transformer has the same funtions like a tower, but the building is often a smaller concrete building with only one platform, because all the lines are coming from earth instead of masts? --thx in advance K@rl (talk) 12:50, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

I would say just building=yes or building=industrial. It is certainly not a transformer tower. That tag should only be used on tall buildings constructed to be a terminal for an overhead power line. For the building on your picture you should also add power=substation and substation=minor_distribution. --opani (talk) 14:36, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
yes but which kind of building - there is a builing with flat roof and walls contrarely to a another kind with two masts and twice so high - it's also not a tower - unfortunately I haven't a photo at this moment. (but not a pole transformer) like in US K@rl (talk) 21:23, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Aslo the description and connect to an overhead power line. was in earliert time valid, but is often overruled through earth lines in the neigbourhood. --K@rl (talk) 07:44, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
For this you can use building=service. Chrabros (talk) 08:02, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
