I didn't get in details what leads to this association between local supply
with a generator and origin and it's not correct.

Origin is only financial/market flows (in association with according
communication claiming for environmental benefits). A particular trade to
pay for a certain kind of electricity production.
When electricity is locally produced, for a given building, it's not about
origin, it's only about source.
As we already define the source on the generator itself, this would be
redundant to explicitly define it on the building as well.

"Origin" is a term that should only be related with grid power supply as
everyone consumes the same electricity but can pay for particular origins.

All the best
