Therms to Megawatt-hours Conversion
Enter the energy in therms below to get the value converted to megawatt-hours.
How to Convert Therms to Megawatt-hours
To convert a therm measurement to a megawatt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One therm is equal to 0.029307 megawatt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:
The energy in megawatt-hours is equal to the 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.
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.
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.
