Millions of lives have been put at risk since May 3 after the Kilauea volcano's first eruptions saw fissures spewing lava which had been sitting in the volcano for up to 60 years.
On Wednesday, Hawaii Governor David Ige said that while officials are continuing to monitor gases leaking from the power plant, "all wells are stable at this point".
A fine layer of brownish-gray ash coated vehicles and other surfaces, and an ash plume rising from the volcano summit was visible in the distance through the hazy air.

Stovall said lava spatter from one of the vents was forming a wall that was helping protect a nearby geothermal plant.
The volcano has opened more than 20 vents in the ground that have released lava, sulfur dioxide and steam.
Ten wells at Puna Geothermal were "quenched", which cools them with cold water, and the last was plugged with mud.
The facility also received a respite from Mother Nature. Lava has burned and buried more than a dozen homes in the community, and 1,700 people have fled.
The methane can seep through cracks several feet away from the lava and can also cause explosions when it's ignited while trapped underground.
Hawaii County has ordered about 2,000 people to evacuate from Leilani Estates and surrounding neighbourhoods since the eruption began on May 3. Most recently, Kilauea's lava has begun flowing into the Pacific Ocean, generating plumes of toxic gas and steam called "laze" and shards of volcanic glass as the molten rock hits the seawater. The caustic plume, which can be fatal if inhaled, is the latest hazard in an eruption that shows no signs of stopping.
