Davis Residence

16.1 Kilowatt Solar Power Systems



Mr. Davis wanted to install a solar energy system to escape the skyrocketing cost of electricity, but lives in a planned golf course community with strict homeowners’ association rules. The challenge was providing a solar solution that complied with community guidelines, while complementing the look of the client’s Spanish-style home.


With a blend of quality solar panels, low profile racking and top-of-the-line inverters, Barrier created a system capable of producing enough energy to meet the needs of the 7,000 sq. ft. home and its family of five, without detracting from its appearance.


Since the installation, Mr. Davis’ electric bill has been eliminated, and his home has maintained its visual appeal. With all the rebates currently available, his system will pay for itself in around seven years, enabling Mr. Davis to claim true energy independence.

“They did an A+ job and… they specialize not only in solar but also roofing.”

Stephan Davis, Homeowner

“I’m a contractor myself, so I’m particular about how things are done. Barrier did an A+ job, and because they specialize not only in solar but also roofing, it was much simpler to deal with just one contractor. We could see a cost savings from day one, and we are very pleased with the decision we made.  As of right now, our power bill is zero!”

Stephan Davis, Homeowner

Barrier nitro coating was applied to the walls, floor and ceiling in our new dairy milking barn. We are completely satisfied – not only is it very durable, but it also cleans up very well without much effort.”

Barrier put a polyurethane foam roof over 200,000 square feet at our facility, which has saved us over 30% on our energy bill – and without any leaks!
