We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

Please advise if you know the relationship of the Megawatts & Kwh?
Howthe following is being workout:
700 megawatt per Generator x 26 Generators can produce 84.7 Billion Kwh per year?

Merry Christmas

1 Megawatt = 1000 Kilowatts

700 Mw x 26 generators = 18200 Mw = 182000000 Kw

They produce 182000000 Kwh each hour. There are 8760 hours in a year, so 182000000 x 8760 = 159432000000 Kwh per year.

Of course these figures assume that all of your generators work on a full power non-stop all year around.

i think the conversion of is wrong.

1 MW = 1000KW

Convert-me has written: 700 Mw x 26 generators = 18200 Mw = 182000000 Kw

According to me it should be: 700 Mw x 26 generators = 18200 Mw = 18200000 Kw
