I don't think they generally do them by request (because they cost about $150K or so to build). The biggest problem I see is that they really don't need one in Sacramento. They've already got them in Folsom and Vacaville, on either side of Sacramento, and only 55 miles apart.

I think a High Power Wall Charger would probably be sufficient... or an 80 amp Clipper Creek.

Were you planning on free or for-profit charging? Please let us know Tesla's response when you contact them. It might provide a clue as to their thinking about the future.

I do think you need to make sure your wiring is sufficient to handle way more than 80 amps (per charger) as in the future you can pretty much bet that today's Level 2 chargers will prove to be unacceptably slow and will have to be replaced by more powerful ones.

@evesautomotive, You can go to the FAQ at http://www.teslamotors.com/supercharger under the listing:
"How can I help bring a Supercharger to my area?
Contact Tesla with your suggestions here."
There's a link you can use to request a supercharger.
I'll echo the other wise responses, however that I, too, doubt Tesla will see a need for another Supercharger in the Sacramento area. Also, an HPWC or Clipper Creek CS-90 should work quite well for your shop for a lot cheaper as well. The CS-90 has the benefit in that other EVS Roadster, Leaf, Volt, etc, can use it as well as Model Ss.
