Curie Power Circle

Membership in the Curie Circle is extended to Fresh Energy members contributing a total of $5,000–$9,999 in a fiscal year.

Marie Curie (1876–1934) originated the theory of radioactivity by hypothesizing and testing the revolutionary concept that rays emitted by uranium could be atomic in nature. Curie’s radical theory ultimately contributed to a fundamental shift in scientific understanding of matter and energy. The Curie Circle celebrates the original thinking that makes scientific breakthroughs possible.
