 Megawatt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Few things can sustain the transfer or consumption of energy on this scale; some of these events or entities include: lightning strikes, naval craft (such as aircraft carriers and submarines), engineering hardware, and some scientific research equipment (such as the supercollider and large lasers).
For reference, about 10,000 100-watt lightbulbs or 2,000 computers would be needed to draw 1 megawatt.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the earliest citing for "megawatt" is a reference in the 1900 Webster's International Dictionary of English Language.

 FEMP Focus Newsletter: October 2000 - USPS Installs One-Megawatt Fuel Cell System in Alaska
Chugach was prepared for the snow to hit and used that as another reason for choosing such a large installation area, an advantage of which is low snow removal maintenance costs.
Five fuel cells, connected in parallel to produce one megawatt of electricity, now are the primary source of power for the Anchorage facility, located adjacent to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Compared with electricity generated from the average combustion-based processes in the Lower 48, a one-megawatt fuel cell system would save more than 200,000 pounds of air pollution and 11 million pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during each year of operation.

 Press release - Oct 18, 2001 - Council analysis proposes challenging the Northwest to develop a 300-megawatt ...
The 300 megawatts, which the analysis calls a “conservation power plant” is an interim target to be pursued while the Council works on revising its Northwest Power Plan, which dates to 1998.
Acquiring 300 megawatts of cost-competitive conservation also would show that the region’s utilities and governments are committed to a diverse portfolio of power resources, he said.
That amount of conservation would be a little less than 10 percent of the 3,400 megawatts of new, gas-fired generation that is either recently completed or under construction in the Northwest.

Records show, however, that from May to September, only 4,553 and 7,208 megawatts of power were offered to the state's power exchange for use in California from these plants.
Duke is spending $1.6 billion on major reconstruction at plants in the central coast town of Morro Bay, a facility in Monterey County and one in the San Diego area.
He should have said, "Just a couple thousand megawatts of demand that exceeds supply can drive up the price." He didn't because he wants to disguise the real problem which is CA gov. policies have prevented private industry from building enough generation capacity to meet the growing demand.

 Duke Energy confirms it charged California $3,880 per megawatt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The company confirmed January sales at $3,880 per megawatt hour after The Charlotte Observer dug up sensitive pricing information in quarterly reports filed with the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission, which monitors whether wholesalers provide electricity at "just and reasonable" prices.
Davis blasted Reliant's bill as "obscene" and cited it as a reason why he is considering seizing the plants owned by Reliant, Duke and other out-of-state wholesalers who won power plants in California.
In statements Friday, Duke portrayed January's $3,880-per-megawatt-hour bill as an aberration that involved just 5,000 megawatt hours_ less than 0.1 percent of the total electricity that the company sold in California during the first three months of the year.
