What is PLP and CAM?

PLP is a term used in commercial real estate and stands for PUBLIC LIGHT AND POWER. There’s usually a separate electrical meter that feeds power to the common areas of the building, such as hallways, stairs and parking lot lights. PLP is one of the components of CAM.

CAM stands for COMMON AREA MAINTENANCE. Common area maintenance also includes cleaning, landscaping, and repairs/maintenance. All this stuff gets added up and charged back to the tenants on a pro-rata share basis. There are lots of variations on this theme and it’s all dictated by the leases in effect for the tenant spaces.

You probably already know all of this, but I figured I’d mention it anyway.
