How to Convert Megawatts to Watts Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert megawatts to watts with this simple formula:

watts = megawatts × 1,000,000

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

For example:
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. A megawatt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 MW. A watt is 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.
