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. Make sense?
