What is a Watt, Kilowatt, Megawatt, Demand, On & Off Peak Usage?

  • Watt (W)—Basic unit of measure of electric power (measures the rate of energy conversion).
  • 1 Kilowatt (kW) = 1,000 W
  • 1 Megawatt (MW) = 1,000 kW = 1,000,000 W
  • Kilowatt Hour (kWh)—Power in kilowatts multiplied by time in hours. (Customers are billed for monthly electric use in terms of kilowatt hours.)
  • 1 kWh = 1 kW x 1 hour.
  • 1 Megawatt Hour (MWh) = 1,000 kW x 1 hour
  • Demand – Demand is a measurement of the peak power “demanded” by a customer over a relatively short period of time (measured in kW or MW). If kWh is equivalent to a car’s odometer, kW would represent the speedometer.
  • On Peak & Off Peak Usage – Each utility determines certain hours of the day that are expected to have higher than average demand for electricity. Those hours are deemed “peak” hours and tend to cost significantly more than “off-peak” hours. Typically, peak hours are in the 8 AM to 6 PM range. Wholesale peak hours are 7 AM to 11 PM (16 hours).
