Jez Nicholson started a proposal Wed 15 May 2019
"Solar power" will be the Q3 (July-Sept) 2019 Quarterly Project Closed Fri 21 Jun 2019
Here comes the sun (hopefully). A good point about sorting out the tags, but maybe that should be part of the project? Anyway, some activities and tools based around solar would be welcome. Group trip to a solar farm anyone?
A good case has been made (on Talk-GB) for a solar power project. Some people are interested in industrial-size installations, others on home-based. The tagging is not 100% sorted out, and we have an entry-level task for matching government planning records to industrial.
I propose that we accept this as the next QP without suggesting alternatives. You may (anonymously) disagree here.
Note: The poll finishes and the decision is made 1 week before the project is due to start, giving time to announce it and set up.

I've started preparation early at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/UK_2019_Q3_Project:_Solar_Power
Don't forget the Renewable Obligation register (has site addresses and MW) and the Feed in Tariff register (admin region for smaller installations).

also add car electric charging points. There is clearly strong use case for including them - I can't find any mapping which includes them all.

I have been one of the proponents of this.* I'm still excited about it - there's feasible mapping to be done, and there are good uses for the data!
the tagging is not sorted out and there are better things to focus on mapping
