A kilowatt is a 1,000 what?

Did you know?    I'm sure you did, but just in case! 🙂

  • Watt is a derived unit of power named after the Scottish engineer James Watt.
  • Watt measures the rate of energy conversion or transfer and is defined as one joule per second.
  • One kilowatt equals 1,000 watts.
  • One kilowatt-hour (kWh) equals the amount of electricity needed to burn a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours.
  • A surface area of one square meter on Earth typically receives one kilowatt of sunlight from the sun (on a clear day at mid-day)!
  • Producing 1 kilowatt of solar energy saves us from burning close to 170 pounds of coal and releasing over 300 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere!
