Accellerated Watts?

Okay, here's how you know I'm a nerd....
KwH is more accurately given as kWh, since the W stands for Watts, a fellow's name.
And it stands for kilo Watt hours, not kilo Watts per hour.
I had to get that off my chest.

Believe this is correct usage
My peak load is 14 kilowatts per hour and my monthly usage is 284 kilowatt hours.0 
Noted
and fixed. Thanks!Retired and loving it.0 
I hate to belabor this, but....
kW=3413 Btu/hr. Thus, both kW and Btu/hr are an energy RATE, similar to miles per hour. You pay for the total energy used, which is the rate times time, or BTU's, or kWH.
kW/Hr would convert to (Btu/hr)/hr or Btu/(hour squared) which is not a unit used too often.

Um, sorta....
The kWh part is fixed, but the explanation should read kiloWatt hours not kiloWatts per hour. The "hours" part goes in the numerator. Delete the word "per."
