The first chart is designed confusingly enough that it took me a little bit of back and forth to understand the redesign, in the context of the original :)

The annotations, and the reworking of the data make the resign crystal clear.

And I definitely think there is value in showing the bars separately in addition to in stacked form. If I had to lose something to save space, I would try to cut the stacked panel before cutting the individual panels.
