The total consumption of electrical energy in Country A is about 1.5 x 10^{15}Joules/year.

What is the average rate of electrical energy consumption in Watts?

So, my friend and I were arguing.

He said, 1.5 x 10^{15}is the answer.

I said, since watts is equal to Joules / sec not Joules / year, we should convert 1.5 x 10^{15}to Joules /sec.

So, who's right, me or my friend?

Please answer
