[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - electricity:source

I'd like to propose a new tag that defines the source of publicly 
available electricity: electricity:source 

This could be used as an additional information tag on amenities that 
provide electricity for public consumption, such as bike/car charging 
stations or camp sites. Many charging stations have nearby solar or use 
green pricing tariffs. I've also seen camp sites and harbours advertise 

This topic came up as a group wanted to plan a bike tour using e-bikes 
but only with renewable energy. I noticed that there appears to be no 
easy way to filter for the source of the electricity provided.

Potential discussion: It's not quite clear to me whether power_supply or 
electricity is preferred for this type of application. It might also be 
interesting for consumers to see which buildings are powered by green 
electricity if this is something a store or similar advertises. So it 
may be worth expanding the proposal to electricity used by the public 
even if not directly available (e.g. lighting in a store).

Best regards,
