Hi,

Last June 11, the power generation refinement proposal was approved by 30
wiki users.
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Power_generation_refinement

It aims to provide a strong and consistent tagging model to map power
plants and power generators too.
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dplant
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dgenerator

Thus, power=plant replace the deprecated power=station (for places where
power is generated only, see
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Substation_refinementfor
other OSM use cases).
power=generator is reserved for devices which convert power from one kind
to another kind.

Wiki update is still in progress but rendering models and editors presets
should be upgraded with that new stuff.

If there's anything you need to bring this up to date, please ask here and
I would be pleased to precise any unclear point.

Please note that 3 other proposals are still draft or RFC and should be
voted in next monts.

Cheers.
