What is an MWHR?[edit]

You state the electricity-generating capacity ("power") of Beaver Dam to be "6,347,345 MWHR".

First, what is an "MWHR"? I can't find it anywhere. I can find "MWh", but that's not a measurement of power (speed at which energy is produced). It's a measurement of the energy produced. So, if you have something that produces (or consumes) at a rate of 1 MW, and you run it for 1 hour, you will have put into (or taken out of) the electrical grid (or battery, whatever) an amount of electricity equal to 1 MWh of energy.

Second, the dam's power, if and when both turbines are running at their full 56 MW, would just be 2 X 56 MW or 112 MW. (All Corps of Engineer dams in the USA put together are 21,000 MW. The Little Rock Division's dams, all put together, are 1,068 MW. See

http://pacesetterlive.dodlive.mil/2015/07/06/generating-interest-in-southwestern-division-hydropower/

.) Hoover dam is 2,080 MW according to WikiP.

So, if 112 MW = 6,347,345 MWHR, then this "HR" thing is not a unit but, rather, is a number, equal to 112/6,347,345, so that in converting MWHR to the more recognizable MW we get 112 MW. A(Alternatively "MWHR" is a unit, equal to 112/6,347,345 of a megawatt.)

But it'd be simpler just to say "112 MW" than to use a unit ("MWHR") that nobody has ever heard of.

Third, from what SOURCE does "6,347,345 MWHR" come from? What country was it written in, and why do they use units that are sort of non-standard for Wikipedia? Please provide a source. And give the source a CRITICAL READING first, to make sure that it's a source whose CONTENT makes it credible. (Not a source made credible by "attribution to authority" or something exterior to its content, which, if not making sense, should impeach it.)2604:2000:C682:B600:4A9:1C47:C70A:4A54 (talk) 10:43, 13 April 2016 (UTC)Christopher L.
