4-8% seems about right.  Of the 29 "power=station" that I just checked,
two are probably substations, but might be small-scale generating

infrastructure at all.  Since I couldn't tell from aerial imagery what
the correct tag was, I left all four at the clearly incorrect
"power=station" so that a future user could easily identify what needs
