How to Convert Kilowatt Hours to Kilowatts (kWh to kW)

To convert kilowatt hours to kilowatts, divide kilowatt hours by hours.

Conversion formula: kilowatts = kilowatt hours ÷ hours

Abbreviated formula: kW = kWh ÷ hrs

Example

Let's say your power bill says you use 30 kilowatt hours per day.

To find out how much power your house is using on average, you would divide the kilowatt-hours by the number of hours in a day:

30 kWh ÷ 24 hrs = 1.25 kW

So, on average, your house is consuming 1.25 kilowatts of electricity.

How to Convert Kilowatts to Kilowatt Hours (kW to kWh)

Need to convert the other way?

To convert kilowatts to kilowatt hours, multiply kilowatts by hours.

Conversion formula: kilowatt hours = kilowatts × hours

Abbreviated formula: kWh = kW × hrs

Example

Let's say you have a dryer that uses 2 kilowatts and it runs for 1.5 hours per dry cycle.

You can calculate how many kilowatt hours it uses each dry cycle by multiplying the kilowatts by the hours:

2 kW × 1.5 hrs = 3 kWh

So, your dryer uses 3 kilowatt hours of electricity every time you run it.
