Get to know your bill - kWh

kWh stands for kilowatt hour.

A kilowatt hour is a measure of amount of electricity consumed over a period of time.

In some cases electricity consumption can be referred to in other units such as megawatt hours (MWh), gigawatt hours (GWh) and terawatt hours (TWh).

The conversion between units is a factor of 1,000.

1 TWh = 1,000 GWh = 1,000,000 MWh = 1,000,000,000 kWh

1,000 kWh   = 1 MWh
1,000 MWh = GWh
1,000 GWh = TWh
