How to Convert Megawatts to Milliwatts

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

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

milliwatts = megawatts × 1,000,000,000

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

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

How Many Milliwatts Are in a Megawatt?

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

1 MW = 1,000,000,000 mW

Megawatts and milliwatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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 Milliwatt?

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 thousandths, or 10-3. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as mW; for example, 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.
