Excellent Article:

The Treasury and the cost of solar in the UK

"If you put solar farms just on the land currently planted with biofuels (around 1.1m acres) then you could generate 190 TWh pa and displace no food production."

Note that annual demand for electricity in the UK is ~350 TWh. This means you could produce half of the UK's annual electricity demand from the land currently dedicated to biofuels. Oh the humanity.
