# How many homes can a megawatt power?

# About how many homes will 102 megawatts power?

Average power consumption for a person in the UK is 650 W. Assuming an average load of 3 kW per household 102 MW would power about 34,000 homes, sometimes more, sometimes less….

# How many megawatts of power is the station generating?

Depends which station I suppose. I think the latest PWR design will produce about 1500 MWE.

# How many light bulbs can 1 megawatt power?

This depends on the wattage of each bulb. If each bulb is, say, 100 watts, you can power ten thousand bulbs. To calculate for your own bulbs, divide 1,000,000 watts by the wat…tage of each bulb.

# How many homes will 1 megawatts power?

This is very dependent on the society concerned, but I guess you mean in a developed industrial society such as the US or Europe, and again whether you mean average or maximum… demand per house. Making it simple, the average demand per house is about 2 Kw, so 1 Mw will supply 500 houses. However if all those houses were cooking their Christmas (or Thanksgiving) turkeys at the same time, this could easily rise to 5 Kw per house, and more if electric heating is in use. Spare a thought for the power station staff keeping it all going!

# How many homes will 500 megawatts power?

How much does a house use? This can vary a lot. If we assume 2kW per house on average, we get 250,000 houses, but if you have electric cooking and heating this could easily co…me to 20kW per house. The trouble with supplying electricity is that loading can vary so much from season to season and over 24 hours.

# How many homes will 781 megawatts power?

The average household in the United States uses about 8,900 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year. That is 8.9 megawatts. So 781/8.9 = 87 homes.

# How many homes can 1500 megawatts power?

1.2 million homes

# How many homes can 3000 megawatts power?

3,000,000

# How many megawatts of electricity powers Universal Studios Hollywood?

That information is not available to the public.

# How many people will 1 megawatt of power service?

It's really subjective. I've heard a lot of figures used. Are you talking about homes? are you talking about "people", including their jobs (industrial, farming, etc.)? What p…art of the world are you in - is the climate hot, cold (this impacts heating and air conditioning loads), or is it just nice all year round? I've heard a rough figure of 1kW per household, but when wind farms are announced I've calculated their figure to .5kW per house as well, so there seems to be a lot of leeway. 1kW = 10 100W lights running, to put this in perspective. I've measured my George Forman grill at ~1kW (but it's only on a few minutes), Hair dryers and small space heaters can quickly get your house usage above 1kW for a period of time. But that doesn't mean all your neighbors are using similar appliances at the same time (but then again, maybe they are). So time of day may impact how much 1 megawatt will power - at 12PM, it might power 10,000 homes, but only power 500 at 6PM when everyone is making dinner, running laundry, and running the air conditioning/heating. Farmers that irrigate, and use electricity to run their pumps can be significant load. Industrial plants can also pull a lot of juice, such as arc furnaces used for smelting. I know of some such plants around 100MW, which employ around 500 people per plant, so if you include jobs this is 1MW per 5 people employed.
