ES has the positive effect that you get your power up independently to the power drain.
borg can't lose all power. you can however make their shields a bit squishier

on my fed vo'quv i combine plasmonic leech with subsytem shield targeting, energy siphon, polarized disruptors and tyken's rift when i'm at or near 100 aux on a tac cube. the amount of damage to the shields increases and they start to drop faster for everyone. i do have 6 in flowcap skill, a 26 flow cap deflector and two 30 flowcap plasma infused consoles however.

against other npc types this pretty much shuts them down entirely.
