Stating the Capacity of Electric Power Plants
Quantity of Energy -
The unit "KWh" (more properly KwH, Kilowatt-Hour) is a measure of the quantity of energy, electric or otherwise.
Flow of Energy : Power -
The unit "Kw", (Kilowatt) is a measure of "energy rate" (flow of energy, energy per unit time), or more succinctly, power, in Watts or Kilowatts. The "Kilo" part is just a multiplier of 1,000, like the "kilo" in "kilometer".
Capacities of Electric Generating Plants -
The capacities of installations generating electricity (electric power plants) are rated in terms of the energy rate, that is, the flow of energy which they are capable of producing.
Such ratings are thus stated in units of "Watts" or "Kilowatts" (Kw), NOT "Kilowatt-Hours (KwH).
- Sorry, translating from Russian, I missed "per year", i.e. KWh per year are meant, of course. Cmapm 01:20, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Socialism is the Soviet power plus electrification of the whole country
The most idiotic idea ever. GOELRO was accomplished before 1930, yet in 1990 the Soviet Union had problems to deliver electricity to its citizens. Another BIG LIE. Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 15:03, 24 May 2010 (UTC)
