A kilowatt is simply 1000 watts of electricity.

A watt of electricity is a measure of power.

Power in turn is a function of the voltage of a circuit multiplied by the current.

Power= Current (Amps) x Voltage

P= I x V

A kilowatt hour is a measure of total energy and it refers to the amount of energy over a period of time:

1 kilowatt hour is equivalent to 1000 watts of power being used or generated for one hour.

So if you were generating 100 watts for 10 hours you would generate 1 kWh.

If you were generating 10000 watts for 6 minutes continually then you would generate.

Kilowatt hours is the standard unit in which power is bought and sold to consumers.
