Actually this is more relevant to the 
proposal than to the power transmission proposal.

According to that scheme you should tag the substation as building=yes, 
power=substation, location=indoor. I would prefer to connect the 
incoming power lines to the building polygon as you don't really know 
what happens inside. However, you may add a node inside and tag it with 
power=transformer, transformer=distribution.
