In any way, he is better off removing one EPS console and putting the assimilated console in it's place.
There's an important distinction to be made here.

The EPS console affects the power transfer rate, and so far as I know not much else. There are a few situations where this helps (e.g. Beam Overload) but for the most part it's pretty useless insofar as recharging weapon power.

The EPS skill, on the other hand, does all a console does and more. While it too does not affect weapon recharge rate, it boosts performance with Emergency Power to X abilities.

So yes, the EPS console doesn't do a whole lot. This has been raised in the forums before, although the EPS console perception seems to be clinging in-game.
