Newton Power Circle

Membership in the Newton Circle is extended to Fresh Energy members contributing a total of $10,000 or more in a fiscal year.

Mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton (1643–1727) was among the foremost scientific intellects of all time. As the identifier of gravity and developer of mathematics of orbital motion, he made foundational contributions to all branches of mathematics and modern physical science. Newton is the exemplar of using scientific investigation to solve scientific problems. The Newton Circle celebrates the application of scientific investigation to problem solving.
