Enter the total power (kW) and the total area (ft^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Kw Per Square Foot. 

Kw Per Square Foot Formula

KWSF = P / A


  • KWSF is the Kw Per Square Foot (kW/ft^2)
  • P is the total power (kW)
  • A is the total area (ft^2)

To calculate Kw Per Square Foot, divide the power in kilowatts by the area in square feet.

How to Calculate Kw Per Square Foot?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Kw Per Square Foot.

  1. First, determine the total power (kW). 
  2. Next, determine the total area (ft^2). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = KWSF = P / A.
  4. Finally, calculate the Kw Per Square Foot.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total power (kW) = 430

total area (ft^2) = 70
