How to Convert Therms to Megawatt-Hours
To convert a measurement in therms to a measurement in megawatt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.029307 megawatt-hours/therm.
Since one therm is equal to 0.029307 megawatt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:
megawatt-hours = therms × 0.029307
The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the energy in therms multiplied by 0.029307.
Therms and megawatt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Therm?
One therm is a measure of heat energy equal to 100,000 BTU, which are equal to the amount of heat energy required to increase the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. Therms are often used by natural gas companies to measure the heat equivalent of gas used.
The therm 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.
