Watt, kilowatt, or megawatt are units of power (energy/time). A watt is 1 joule/second. A kilowatt is a thousand joules per second. A kilowatt is also 1 kWh/hour (kilowatt-hour / hour). Since you would usually pay per kilowatt-hour, you might be more interested in the number of kilowatt-hours. A megawatt is a million joules per second - or a thousand kWh/hour.

Considering it is kw for kilowatt and not kv. 1 megawatt = 1000 kilowatt.

1 kilowatt hour = 3,600,000 Joules 1 Tetrajoule = 1,000,000 Joules 1 kilowatt hour = 3.6 Tetrajoules

None. A cubic inch is a measure of volume while a kilowatt is a measure of power. The two measure different things and, according to the basic rules of dimensional analysis, conversion from one to the other is not valid.

The same as it can generate in a day, or in a year, or in a second. Kilowatt is a unit of power, not a unit of energy.
