How to Convert Electric Horsepower to Watts

Convert electric horsepower to watts with this simple formula:

watts = electric horsepower × 746

Converting an electric horsepower power measurement to a watt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One electric horsepower is equal to 746 watts, so to convert simply multiply by 746.

For example, here's how to convert 5 electric horsepower to watts using the formula above.
5 hp(E) = (5 × 746) = 3,730 W

Electric horsepower and watts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. Electric horsepower is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as hp(E), for example 1 hp(E). Watts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as W, for example 1 W.

A watt is equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second and is a standard unit of power measurement under the International System of Units (SI). You might also find our watts to amps calculator or our watts to kilowatt-hours calculator useful.
