Environmental Conservation

Our Commitment to Environmental Excellence

Conservation Tree Planting

JR Merit makes every effort to minimize our effect on the environment. We continually assess our impact and apply our lessons learned to each new project. We meet EPA and DEQ standards for every project and comply with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) inspections when required. Beyond simple compliance, we creatively recycle and/or resell project debris, often saving clients money rather than spending it!

Community Involvement

Above and Beyond Business

We feel it is important to enrich our lives as well as the lives of those around us. We get involved with organizations that give back and help our communities.

  • We support our neighbors at Clark County Food Bank through volunteer work.
  • In 2018, we made our largest donation ever to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
  • Giving Back Abroad: In 2019, three JR Merit team members participated in rebuilding a school in rural South Africa.
