How to Convert Megawatt-hours to Therms

To convert a megawatt-hour measurement to a therm measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One megawatt-hour is equal to 34.121416 therms, so use this simple formula to convert:

therms = megawatt-hours × 34.121416

The energy in therms is equal to the megawatt-hours multiplied by 34.121416.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatt-hours to therms using the formula above.
5 MWh = (5 × 34.121416) = 170.607082 therms

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

Megawatt-hours

A megawatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one megawatt, or 1,000,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Megawatt-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.

Megawatt-hours are usually abbreviated as MWh, although the formally adopted expression is MW·h. The abbreviation MW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 MWh, 1 MW·h, or 1 MW h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.[1]

Therms

One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to 100,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Therms are often used by natural gas companies to measure the heat equivalent of gas used.

The therm is a US customary unit of energy.
