    Probably not for two reasons.

    First most charge controllers have "load" terminals rated very low which reduces the amount of watts they can power and most loads like appliances and even large wattage lighting would burn up the terminals.

    Second is that you will only get the DC voltage of the battery that the controller is charging to run your load. Most AC loads will not work on any type of DC power source unless it is specially rated for either AC or DC power connection and meets both the voltage and current rating of what the CC can provide.
