Please do not mix the "power"-tag for generating electricity with
other sources of energy like steam, vacuum, heat and so on.

-> For marking and tagging facilities for the generation and
distribution of electrical power.

obsolet, because "power" defines electricity. Again, please propose a
new tag for heating or cooling plants. e.g. man_made=heat_plant


> power_method (to specify how it generates the useful energy)
> http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/power_method

nice :-)
