Same in France, we have many substations like the one on your picture bredy.

We miss "wall attach" tag beside poles and towers to deal with those issues.

Regading this, I'm willing to introduce man_made=pole/tower to use
power=transformer on the same node.

It's currently discussed on ML and transmission proposal :

Using transformer=yes will force data cosnumers to deal with many different
combinations for transformer (and other hosted stuff) while poles and
towers may not have so many to do with power=*
