An acre of corn will yield 30 million btu's of ethanol per year.
An acre of solar panels in the dessert will yield 4,500 million btu's per year.

In a dessert wasteland without water, fertilizer, or distilling potential food.

An electric car can be 2-3 times or more efficient per btu than an ethanol powered car, while having zero emissions.
