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:

milliwatts = megawatts × 1,000,000,000

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.
5 MW = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 mW

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 106. 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.
