How to Convert Kilowatts to Megawatts

Convert kilowatts to megawatts with this simple formula:

megawatts = kilowatts × 0.001

Converting a kilowatt power measurement to a megawatt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One kilowatt is equal to 0.001 megawatts, so to convert simply multiply by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilowatts to megawatts using the formula above.
5 kW = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 MW

Kilowatts and megawatts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. Kilowatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kW. Megawatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 MW.
