Power was restored to the Hawaiʻi State Capitol on Wednesday after an outage started over the weekend.

On Saturday morning, one of three high-voltage circuit breakers at the state Capitol shorted due to internal equipment failure, officials said.

The Department of Accounting and General Services worked with contractors to restore power.

The downtown Honolulu building was closed during the outage.

The Legislature adjourned in May. The 2023 session starts in January.
