I've just done a quick calculation.

Area of United Kingdom - 243,610 km2
Area of a Solar Panel - 1 m2
So that's 243 billion panels.
Each panel produces a maximum of 0.2KWH, so we'll give them only 10% capacity, that's 0.02KWH/panel

0.02 x 243 billion = 48.6 GWH

That's around 4 nuclear plants. Just saying.
