## How to Convert Kilowatt-hours to Calories

To convert a kilowatt-hour measurement to a calorie measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilowatt-hour is equal to 860,420.650096 calories, so use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in calories is equal to the kilowatt-hours multiplied by 860,420.650096.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilowatt-hours to calories using the formula above.

Kilowatt-hours and calories are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Kilowatt-hours

A kilowatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one kilowatt, or 1,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Kilowatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.

Kilowatt-hours can be abbreviated as *kWh*, for example 1 kilowatt-hour can be written as 1 kWh.

## Calories

One calorie is equal to the heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water from 14.5 to 15.5 degrees Celsius.

When measuring the energy content in foods, the large calorie, or kilocalorie is used, but it's often still just called a "calorie." When both the calorie and large calorie are used in the same context it is common to refer to the calorie as a "small calorie."

Calories can be abbreviated as *cal*, for example 1 calorie can be written as 1 cal.
