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.
