#### Watts to gigawatts

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.

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.

#### How to convert watts to gigawatts

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

1GW = 109W = 1000000000 W

Watts to gigawatts conversion formula

The power in gigawatts P(GW) is equal to the power in watts P(W) divided by 109:

P(GW) = P(W) / 109

#### Example

Convert 5W to gigawatts:

P(GW) = 5W / 109 = 5×10-9GW
