How do I tag a wind power generator, that does not have a propeller but looks like a tiltes squerril case blower? It has a vertical rotation axis. (H-Darrieus-Rotor)? --Lulu-Ann 14:46, 5 August 2011 (BST)

That would be Tag:generator:type=vertical_axis --Scruss (talk) 21:45, 24 January 2015 (UTC)


Which side should I consider the front when tagging direction=*, the side with the rotor or the one with the box? --Jolesh (talk) 19:22, 24 October 2020 (UTC)


Should wind turbine nodes have a name=* tag? If so, should it be the name of the wind farm, with ref=* as the turbine number within that farm if known, or should the wind farm turbine number be used as the name (with or without the farm name as a prefix)? --Sbdavis (talk) 22:53, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

A wind turbine nodes should have a ref=* but not an a name=*. The wind farm power=plant + plant:source=wind may have a name=*.--geozeisig (talk) 06:55, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
