## How to Convert Megawatts to Kilowatts

To convert a measurement in megawatts to a measurement in kilowatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 kilowatts/megawatt.

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

kilowatts = megawatts × 1,000

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

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

### 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

## What Is a Megawatt?

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 millions, or 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

## What Is a Kilowatt?

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 thousands, or 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
