New York wind barely topped 25% capacity factor in 2012

    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.

Of note in the NYISO planning reports is that no addition of wind capacity is planned for past 2014, which has remained consistent for several years:
