the proposed wind power project will produce 7,000 megawatts of power, what’s a megawatt? Is it 7,000 megawats a year? a month? an hour?

    A megawatt, like a watt on a lightbulb, is a measure of energy at any one point. Turn on a 60 watt bulb and it is consuming 60 watts. Leave that bulb on for an hour, and your power company charges you for 60 watt-hours. 

    So a 7,000 megawatt powerplant is producing 7,000 megawatts, continuously.
