solar farms being built in the UK a thought has come to mind.
Namely, that these farms are being built on valuable farmland. There is (or maybe that is now was) a government grant for people to put solar panels on the roofs of their homes.
Why don't people put their heads together and rent the roofs of private homes or give them money off their electricity bills so that solar panels can be put on private roofs. That will free up the land for food crops or bio-mass.
Of course, that won't happen because the evil triumvirate of bankers, corporations and politicians want to take us for every penny they can get and want us to pay to put solar panels on our roofs.
I would have thought a solar panel on a private roof would be a lot more secure than in an open field in the middle of nowhere. I can see a lot of these solar farms being ransacked as is the railway system for copper wire.
