#### Megawatts to kilowatts

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.

The 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.

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.

#### How to convert megawatts to kilowatts

1MW = 1000kW

1kW = 0.001MW

Megawatts to kilowatts conversion formula

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

P(kW) = 1000 × P(MW)

#### Example

Convert 3MW to kilowatts:

P(kW) = 1000 × 3MW = 3000kW
