If the requirement is for an indication that electricity is connected .. 
then that should be easy to verify and map.

electricity:connected=yes/no  would be a good tag. It does not lend 
itself to tagging other things, and is clear in meaning. I supose some 
will tag electricity:connected=yes/no/single_phase/three_phase and 
possibly other things .. I would discourage that.
