st: Autocorrelation doesn't seem to go away. What can I do here? |

Hello, I’m wondering if anyone can tell me what my next step should be or how bad my results are going to be if I ignore the autocorrelation problem and bad Hansen statistics. Basically this modelling is done on a utility data where consumption is metered on a roughly 90 day period. I’m trying to estimate the impact of the price on the consumption. I chose to go with GMM as I have endogeneity problems with the lagged consumption and two tier pricing. I’m using laglimits(2 2) of consumption to handle the first endogeneity. Also using actual RealTier1& RealTier2 as instrument for the weighted average price. I don’t think this causes any concern. RainDeviation, TempDeviation & EvapDeviation measure weather variables as deviation from their mean value for the meter reading period. I don’t think this causes any concern. Summer, autumn, winter & spring are variables measuring how much season is covered by each meter reading period. restrictionsL2 is some sort of restriction on use placed by the government. I have tried many different variations but nothing seems to solve the autocorrelation problem. I have attached the results. Any suggestion I should do? Any help is appreciated.
