## How to Convert Megawatts to Kilowatts

To convert a megawatt measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio.

Since one megawatt is equal to 1,000 kilowatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The power in kilowatts is equal to the megawatts multiplied by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 megawatts to kilowatts using the formula above.

### How Many Kilowatts Are in a Megawatt?

There are **1,000** kilowatts in a megawatt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 MW = 1,000 kW

Megawatts and kilowatts 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.

## Kilowatts

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

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as *kW*; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
