New York wind barely topped 25% capacity factor in 2012  

Credit:  NYISO Planning Reports, 2010-2013 ~~

    Capacity (MW)   Generation (GWh)   Cap. Factor
2010   1240   2533   23.3%
2011   1310   2787   24.3%
2012   1363   3060   25.6%

Note that these values reflect only available capacity. Considering installed wind turbines that have malfunctioned, burned up, collapsed, or otherwise taken out of operation would significantly lower the total capacity factors.
