Today most of the Data Centres are having a generator back-up so you should not be worrying about it. But yes I can suggest a data centre in California in Santa Monica city which is iPowerWeb. They are having their own Data Centres along with the hosting business.
Rolling blackouts affected a huge portion of California over the last few years, but IIRC they never cut the power to other utilities and I never heard of Equinix (nor any other Los Angeles DC) having to rely on standby sources since we've been located there. Shutting power off to communications service providers would be politicaly disasterous, but even if it did occur, any major data center can go days (some weeks or months) without city power if needed.
The problems in California were always with Southern California Edison. For the city of Los Angeles they are provided power by DWP and during those outages DWP even had spare power, but that does not make for good TV.
I think that you would be safe with any host in a true data center since most have backup power.

HAHA, I was asleep during almost all the earthquakes we have had since living here, One happened at mid day and it was far away but no one else felt it but it seemed as if the counter at the store I was at was moving but it was bolted to the ground (I was leaning against it). HaHa.
