How to Convert Quads to Megawatt-Hours
To convert a measurement in quads to a measurement in megawatt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 293,071,070.17222 megawatt-hours/quad.
Since one quad is equal to 293,071,070.17222 megawatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:
megawatt-hours = quads × 293,071,070.17222
The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the energy in quads multiplied by 293,071,070.17222.
How Many Megawatt-Hours Are in a Quad?
There are 293,071,070.17222 megawatt-hours in a quad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 quads = 293,071,070.17222 MWh

What Is a Quad?
One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Quads are usually used when talking about energy resources and consumption on a national or international scale.
The quad is a US customary unit of energy.

What Is a Megawatt-Hour?
A megawatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one megawatt, or 1,000,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Megawatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.
Megawatt-hours are usually abbreviated as MWh, although the formally adopted expression is MW·h. The abbreviation MW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 MWh, 1 MW·h, or 1 MW h.
In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.
