NO. One hour at a current of 1.5kW is 1.5kWh (1.5 kilowatt-hours)

Here is a simple calculator:

Calculate the Costs to Use Electricity - WebMath
Use that calculator. 1500 Watts for one hour equals 1.5kWh (kilowatt-hours, NOT kilowatts per hour)

Does it make a little more sense now?
Maybe in your universe. On Earth, a Watt is a joule/sec or a volt-amp. Check any, ANY, freshman physics book, or even Wikipedia.
Typed on my Underwood Finger-Flight Champion portable typewriter (in triplicate, using carbon paper), sent to my basement laboratory via pneumatic tubes, transcribed by Minions on a Commodore 64 (complete with 5 1/4" single-sided floppy), and uploaded to the Internets via 14.4 kbit/s modem. Ain't modern technology grand?
