If you calculate the power by dividing the energy by time, you also 
divide the units. This automatically results in "W" (Or another unit of 
The Values stored in the Database represent the energy measured and 
should be labelled accordingly. You can calculate whatever you want from it.
If you add a Frontendview showing the daily temperature difference you 
wouldn't rename the temperature measurements to "Temperaturedifference 
per day" and change the unit to "°C/d" either, would you?
