## How to Convert Electric Horsepower to Kilowatts

To convert a electric horsepower measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One electric horsepower is equal to 0.746 kilowatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

The power in kilowatts is equal to the electric horsepower multiplied by 0.746.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 electric horsepower to kilowatts using the formula above.

Electric horsepower and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Electric Horsepower

Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines in the US. One electric horsepower is equal to exactly 746 watts.

The electric horsepower is a US customary and imperial unit of power. Electric horsepower can be abbreviated as *hp(E)*, for example 1 electric horsepower can be written as 1 hp(E).

## Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as *kW*, for example 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
