A kilowatt hour is calculated by adding the watts together and deviding by 1000, this will give you kilowatts (kW). Then work out how many hours you are using this load for. multiply the kW by the hours and you get kWh. eg 15 lamps at 100w = 1500w/1000 = 1.5 kW. If these were left on for 6 hours then 6 x 1.5 = 9 kWh.


There is no such thing as a 'kilowatt per hour'. It's rather like saying 'kilometres per hour per hour', because a kilowatt is a special name given to a joule per second -in other words, it measures a rate.

No device uses "kilowatts per hour". A watt or kilowatt is a unit of power, not of energy. That means that the "per hour" or "per second" is already implied - the watt refers to a "rate of energy conversion" - not to an amount of energy. If a devices uses a certain amount of kilowatts, it uses this amount all the time while it is on - whether it is kept on for a second or for several days.
