Video: What is a kilowatt hour?

We’ve put together a short video to answer a question we get all the time: What is a kilowatt hour? And how is it different from a kilowatt? You probably notice on your electricity bill each month that you’re billed for kWh (kilowatt hours), so knowing what they are and how they’re calculated can help you have more control over your energy usage.

This video helps visualize what a kWh is, and how you can pay attention to your own electricity usage to keep your kWh -- and electricity bills -- low each month.


This video is part of our new homeowner video series. You can take a look at the full series at, where we’ll continue to post new videos.
