How many watts per hour does 1500 watt baseboard heater use?

The watt is a unit of power. Power is the rate of energy consumption. There is, therefore, no such thing as 'watts per hour'. What you probably mean is how much energy, in kilowatt hours, does a baseboard heater use in an hour? You can find this by multiplying the power rating in kilowatts by one hour. However, bear in mind, that the baseboard heater is regulated by a thermostat and, so, is not energised permanently, so you will be calculating the 'worst case' situation.
