Mello-Roos is an additional cost to pay for community improvements like schools and streets etc., applied to regular property taxes for a set period between 20 to 40 years. The IRS typically doesn't allow you to write Mello-Roos off as you would with property taxes, so make sure you know the yearly cost before purchasing; they can be as high as $600 per month.
Solar should be included; builders pay bulk pricing for solar. Yes, they work it into the new home price, but it usually makes little noticeable difference to the monthly mortgage payment compared to your two to six hundred dollar electric bill.

The new single-family homes at Aspen seems to be the more affordable option for homes in Spencer's Crossing. The significant drawbacks are that you'll have to pay HOA and Mello-Roos, but the community does have a great recreation center with a pool and large parks. I also appreciated that the homes all feature a bedroom on the first floor, have larger yards than most, and feature up to a three-car garage. On the flip side, I saw some builder flaws in the models, usually a telling sign of the builder's quality for this community. I also would have liked to see more smart home features included.
