How to Convert Kilowatt-hours to Joules

Convert kilowatt-hours to joules with this simple formula:

joules = kilowatt-hours × 3,600,000

Converting a kilowatt-hour energy measurement to a joule measurement involves multiplying the energy by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilowatt-hour is equal to 3,600,000 joules, so to convert simply multiply by 3,600,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilowatt-hours to joules using the formula above.
5 kWh = (5 × 3,600,000) = 18,000,000 J
