### How many kilowatts does a house use per day?

Kilowatt is a unit of power, not of energy. "Kilowatt per day"
doesn't make much sense. Basically, a house uses the same amount of
kilowatts in a day as it does in a year. At least on average.
To find the energy, multiply the power in kilowatts by the
number of hours it is used for, and the answer is in
kilowatt-hours, also known as Units.

### How many kilowatts is 50 amps?

It depends on the voltage. For example if you had 120 volts
(average Alternating Current supply voltage) you would have 6
kilowatts. However, if you were dealing with 12 volts (average
Direct Current supply voltage) you would only have 1.4 kilowatts.
Use the following equation to calculate the number of kilowatts
produced from different voltages:
(Voltage x 50)/1000 = # kilowatts
