#### Gigawatts to watts

A gigawatt is a massive amount of energy equalling 1000 megawatts. That is enough to power a medium-sized city. To generate that much power in a day would take over 3 million solar panels.

A unit of electrical power equal to one billion watts. These units are most commonly used in referring to the total output of a type of energy production like solar or nuclear and can also be used to measure the total energy capacity of a state or country.

One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.

#### How to convert gigawatts to watts

1GW = 109W = 1000000000 W

1W = 10-9GW = 1/1000000000 GW

Gigawatts to watts conversion formula

The power in watts P(W)

is equal to 109 times the power in gigawatts P(GW):

P(W) = 109 × P(GW)

#### Example

Convert 3GW to watts:

P(W) = 109 × 3GW = 3×109W = 3000000000W
