Megawatts and btu per hour are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Megawatts

One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 10^{6}. Megawatts can be abbreviated as *MW*; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

## Btu Per Hour

One BTU per hour is equal to one british thermal unit, or the energy needed to heat one pound of water 1 °F, for one hour.

The btu per hour is a US customary unit of power. Btu per hour can be abbreviated as *Btu/h*; for example, 1 btu per hour can be written as 1 Btu/h.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
