Per the latest American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) quarterly market report:

U.S. wind farms now generate more electricity than any other nation in the world and are on track to expand by over 45% this year, but the expiration of the federal production tax credit (PTC) less than five months from now threatens this spectacular progress…

The AWEA quarterly report, found here, cites the following New York wind power projects under construction:
