How to Convert Megawatts to Kilowatts

Convert megawatts to kilowatts with this simple formula:

kilowatts = megawatts × 1,000

Converting a megawatt power measurement to a kilowatt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One megawatt is equal to 1,000 kilowatts, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatts to kilowatts using the formula above.
5 MW = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 kW

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