A Question on Energy Rebates

Dear Source:
I am pleased to see resumption of the energy rebate program. However, I do not understand why specified dealers of the items eligible for rebate have to be used. Why couldn't any appliance bearing the Energy Star emblem qualify so long as it is purchased on island? I haven't compared prices between the stores listed as eligible by WAPA and those not listed, such as Home Depot. I hope someone can give me a logical response to this question.
