There are also tons of bonuses you can use, the M.A.C.O and Romulan Singularity sets both have bonus electro-plasma systems which also make a noticeable difference. Sure, Escorts can take advantage of power transfer too, but not as easily due to more limited console slots, so those that do do it to keep their DPS up but will have to sacrifice damage resistance to do-so.
EPS flow regulators do squat for weapon power drain. They only help recover from using an BOFF ability like Beam Overload.
