[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - electricity=*

I have reworked the proposal 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/electricity to 
include the separation of the source tag and a further example including 
battery storage.

To avoid confusion, I have decided to keep the secondary namespace in 
the source tags even though they are somewhat redundant. Although in the 
case of the Shoals Laboratory, something like grid:input would make 
sense as well since the grid is well-defined!

Are there any further comments or undiscussed problems?
