For plants which are operational, but have additional capacity under development, please use only the current installed capacity.
plant_capacity_factor Capacity factor of the power station, in percentage. For pumped storage, please try to rely solely on third-party sources, as manual capacity factor calculations are overly complex for PSH and their results do not align with figures in (authoritative) third-party sources.

plant_storage_hours Storage capacity of the power station, in hours (if desired, you can also provide calculated or actual GWh figures in parenthesis). Generally only applicable to pumped storage.
plant_annual_gen Average annual power generation. To be used in combination with the following plant_annual_gen_year parameter. GW·h suffix will auto added for number without unit or any text appended.
plant_annual_gen_year Given generation value exact description. If no description is given, it will default to Annual (i.e. it will expand to Annual generation). Enter following text:

Planned net if given data is a planned estimate net output
Planned gross if given data is a planned estimate gross output
YYYY net, if given data is year YYYY net output
YYYY gross if given data is year YYYY gross output
Annual net if given data is a average net output
Annual gross if given data is a average gross output

extras Free form, spans both columns. Use sparingly.

Coordinates[change source]

The coordinates should be specified using coordinates – with a {{coord}} template. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Geographical coordinates#Parameters for more details about setting the coordinates_type.

Microformat[change source]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[change source]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[change source]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.

Tracking category[change source]
