The above sentence is nonsense because you are confusing power
(watts) with energy (watt-hours). Horsepower can be converted to the
equivalent value of watts, but not "watts per hour", whatever that
is. Perhaps you meant "watt-hours", but that is energy, not power.
Perhaps this will clear it up:
One horsepower = 745.7 watts. This is a power relationship, not energy.
If you produce one horsepower for one hour, you have produced 745.7
watt-hours of energy.
One horsepower-hour = 745.7 watt-hours. This is an energy
relationship, not power.
