#### Kilowatts to megawatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as kW; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.

One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

nThe megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW; for example, 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

#### How to convert kilowatts to megawatts

1MW = 1000kW

1kW = 0.001MW

Kilowatts to megawatts conversion formula

The power in megawatts P(MW) is equal to the power in kilowatts P(kW) divided by 1000:

P(MW) = P(kW) / 1000

#### Example

Convert 5kW to megawatts:

P(MW) = 5kW / 1000 = 0.005MW
