We already map those see 

Slightly different in that you would navigate to one if you need to
charge your car. You would not go to a campsite to charge your phone,
but power can be a consideration when choosing somewhere to camp.

Although power available sub-tagging could be applied to lots of
objects. Pubs, Cafes and Railway Stations provide power for customers
to charge mobile phones and laptops, most will provide mains but many
now have USB connectors so you only need to carry a cable.
