How to Convert Electric Horsepower to Kilowatts

Convert electric horsepower to kilowatts with this simple formula:

kilowatts = electric horsepower × 0.746

Converting an electric horsepower power measurement to a kilowatt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One electric horsepower is equal to 0.746 kilowatts, so to convert simply multiply by 0.746.

For example, here's how to convert 5 electric horsepower to kilowatts using the formula above.
5 hp(E) = (5 × 0.746) = 3.73 kW

Electric horsepower and kilowatts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators.
