How to Convert Megawatts to Watts

Convert megawatts to watts with this simple formula:

watts = megawatts × 1,000,000

Converting a megawatt power measurement to a watt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One megawatt is equal to 1,000,000 watts, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000,000.

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

Megawatts and watts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. Megawatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 MW. Watts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as W, for example 1 W.

A watt is equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second and is a standard unit of power measurement under the International System of Units (SI). You might also find our watts to amps calculator or our watts to kilowatt-hours calculator useful.
