### How many megawatts would be needed to supply 1 million kilowatt hours?

1 megawatt = 1 million watts = 1000 kilowatts. So 1 megawatt for
1000 hours will give 1 million kilowatthours. More megawatts will
give the same kilowatthours in a shorter time period.
Don't forget- watts, kilowatts, megawatts are rates of
energy, kilowatthours are quantities of energy. A quantity
is given by a rate x a time period.
