What’s with the small “k”?

Literally-speaking, kW Engineering means “Power Engineering”. We chose the name to simply convey the focus of our firm which has always been energy engineering. kW stands for kilowatt, the unit of measurement used in the U.S. to measure electrical power. Kilowatt is abbreviated “kW” with the small “k” for kilo (or thousand) and the capital “W” out of respect for James Watt, the 18th century inventor and mechanical engineer.
