I'll answer to myself, and also I hope this info can help someone else.
After testing it ingame yesterday, I found that, as of the current patch, the correct scenario is the second one.
The 125 Power Limit is only enforced as a soft cap, but using EPTW or any other Energy enhacing abilities (like MACO shield proc or EPS Power Transfer) are being taken into account when calculating weapon power drain, even if that pushes your power pool above 125.
So If I already have 125 power, and then I activate EPTW 1, I still have 125 max weapon power, but weapon draining is calculate on a 140 power base, (so firing 6 beam weapons results in 125 + 15 -50 = 90 Weapon Power when fully drained).
