## How to Convert Megawatts to Milliwatts

To convert a megawatt measurement to a milliwatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One megawatt is equal to 1,000,000,000 milliwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

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

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

Megawatts and milliwatts 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^{9}. Megawatts can be abbreviated as *MW*, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

## Milliwatts

One milliwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000 of a joule per second.

The milliwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10^{-3}. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as *mW*, for example 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.
